Newborn Care Specialist

Postpartum and Newborn Care Specialist professionals - Colorado Newborn

A Newborn Care Specialist (NCS) is a professional provider who is highly trained and experienced in all things Newborn. Many years ago, the term “baby nurse” was often used to describe a nurturing, but untrained person who would come to your home to care for your infant. This term is no longer accurate, and unless a provider has an actual nursing degree is it illegal to use the term nurse.

Today, Newborn Care Specialists are the most highly educated in-home newborn care provider. They are well versed in common and uncommon medical issues, feeding modalities, general baby development, and age-appropriate sleep hygiene and routines.

At Colorado Newborn, we specialize in matching and placing Newborn Care Specialists with families like yours who are searching for a professional care provider for their newborn in their home.
