The Baby Nurse assists the mother with all of the day-to-day care of your new baby needs. A Newborn Specialist educates and supports parents to care for their new infant with the goal of establishing a practical routine that leaves the family feeling settled and comfortable.
Typically, one of our key objectives are to help transition the baby to a regular feeding and stretched sleeping routine, that allows the baby to sleep hours at a time, at the earliest stage of baby’s life The Newborn Specialist usually will sleep in the baby’s room or in a guest room, equipped with a crib or a basenet, in order to provide immediate response to your infant’s needs. Sleeping arrangements are part of what is decided during pre-birth interviews and discussions in order to make the transition more convenient and less disruptive to the household.
Managing and Support to families while focusing on the importance of family, is our goal.
