A Newborn Care Specialist (also known as an NCS) is a professional postpartum care provider who has taken in-depth training and education courses pertaining to newborns and infants, and has a specialized skill set to provide optimal care for their clients.
An NCS generally supports families for the first 0-16 weeks of baby’s arrival, and some will continue to provide support for the first year of baby’s life.
Check out my blog post, Goodbye Baby Nurse, Hello Newborn Care Specialist, to learn everything you need to know about an NCS.
I have had a passion for working with children my whole life, and have always gravitated towards infants. I have been called a baby whisperer from a young age, and have always wanted to be involved in caring for others. I find so much joy in taking care of newborns in their first precious year of life, and helping new parents not just survive, but thrive in their parenting journey.
I recommend scheduling my Preparing for Baby and Parent Education services to take place any time in the second or third trimester. For in-person newborn care support I recommend booking as soon as possible as my yearly calendar fills up quickly!
Did you know only about 5% of babies are born on their exact due date? To ensure you have care when they do arrive, I hold the dates one week before their estimated due date, AND also one week on the backend of the contracted dates of care in the event they arrive after their estimated due date.
