What is a Certified Newborn Care Specialist?

 

A Newborn Care Specialist is a professional caregiver who helps with the wonderful, yet sometimes overwhelming, experience of bringing home a new baby.  The most important job for the NCS is the care and protection of the baby through the night. In addition she assists new parents by suggesting approaches on basic newborn care, including issues with breastfeeding and normal sleep schedules.  Her primary focus is to provide a calm environment for both baby and parents.
