A Newborn Care Specialist, formerly known as a ‘baby nurse,’ is someone who is highly trained in child care in the home, specializing in baby care in the first 12-16 weeks of life.  Not only do they provide support for baby, but they are also able to help educate and encourage new parents on the various milestones and parenting skills.

The expert care and attention that Newborn Care Specialists offer to baby and family mean that you can recover from childbirth and more easily adjust to your life with your new baby.

Newborn Care Solutions goes the extra mile to ensure the safety and privacy of your family. For examples, they have an in-house screening process that is thorough and you are only introduced to a candidate once their stringent standards have been met. Therefore, you can rest easy, knowing your little one is in capable and trustworthy hands.
