Newborn care specialists (or NCS) are brought into the home when an infant, or multiple infants, are being welcomed into a home, either to provide overnight care for 10-12 hour shifts or to provide 24-hour care, often in collaboration with other NCS. Newborn care specialists are sometimes referred to as ‘night nurses’ or ‘baby nurses’ - however, this terminology is no longer used as newborn care specialists do not have medical licenses or degrees. They are highly-trained newborn experts who lead and collaborate with parents on developmental milestones, work on sleep conditioning and sleep training with newborns, and implement a set schedule for your newborn to sleep through the night and provide new parents with much-needed rest and support. Newborn care specialist contracts are typically 3-6 months in length, with some families requesting ongoing support for the first year of a child’s life.
