A “baby nurse” is an industry term that means a newborn specialist or caregiver. Baby nurses are experienced and trained in the care of newborn babies. They are non-medical care providers.
Newborn Care Specialists usually arrives when baby is home from the hospital or they may help you bring the baby home if you choose.
Baby nurse bookings are usually anywhere from 1 week to 6 months; although some jobs extend up to one year! Although it may be difficult, it is best when you know in advance the amount of time you’d like to book so we can reserve the baby nurse.
We recommend baby nurses based on availability, location and hours needed. We are very selective and maintain the highest quality standards for our pool of qualified baby nurses. If however, you’d rather speak or meet with a baby nurse before hand, that can be arranged as long as they are not currently on an assignment.
There is one week minimum (5-7 days) and a hour per day minimum. We offer hourly (day/night) and 24 hour baby nurses.
The baby nurse will be paid directly by you at the end of each week. You can pay her by cash or check. The agency is paid separately by credit card on file based on the duration of the assignment.
Whether you have an estate of a studio apartment, baby’s room, guest room or living room sofa may all be suitable. Baby nurses generally sleep in the same room as the baby unless you prefer to bring the baby to her when needed.
