I have designed this page to give some information to parents and to answer some frequently asked questions regarding “Babynurses" sometimes called Newborn Care Specialists. A Babynurse will take care of everything concerning the care of newborns. Babynurses have a deep understanding of the developmental stages of newborns.

They will teach you techniques related to caring for your newborn, including, but not limited to:
Additionally, they will help get the baby on a schedule. This will aid in normalizing parents’ sleeping patterns once private Babynurse services are no longer in use. The time spent with a Babynurse should be pleasant and gratifying – you will spend many hours together!

The length of a Babynurse stay is usually between 1 and 6 months, but is negotiable depending upon the needs of the family. Because you and your Babynurse will spend many hours together, we encourage a face to face interview of Babynurse candidates to ensure that their skills and personality are the right fit for you and your family. After all, you will be sharing some wonderful memories during some very intimate moments. Interviewing a Babynurse is often as simple as having an initial phone conversation, followed by a face to face interview. Some families wish to have their Babynurse meet with the mother’s OB/GYN and/or the prospective pediatrician.
Any time after the first trimester, the sooner the better.
Babynurses base their rate on 22 hour days. Their average daily rate (net after taxes) is usually between:
