Newborn Care

What is a Newborn Care Specialist (NCS)?

A Newborn Care Specialist is so much more than your average nanny.

Newborn Care Specialists (NCS) are a specialized type of nanny with training and experience focused on the newborn phase; they typically have extensive newborn experience including working with medically fragile newborns and multiples.

Newborn Care Specialists are highly educated, specially trained and certified; some NCS are also registered nurses. These specialized care providers are gifted with the skills, knowledge and confidence to handle all of baby’s needs during the newborn days and into infancy. NCS often work as overnight care providers, taking care of all of your newborn’s feedings, diaper changes and everything in between…allowing parents to get some much needed sleep. 

Newborn Care Specialists are able to discern between normal causes for concern with babies and those that may require special attention. They share advice and recommendations to parents in need so that the whole family can benefit from adapting a healthy sleeping routine, as well as a better understanding of their little one’s nutritional needs and more.
