A Newborn Care Specialist (NCS) sometimes referred to as a 24/7 baby nurse or 24/7 night nurse, is a highly experienced individual who specializes in newborn and infant care.

When you choose to work with Nightingales, your perfectly matched Newborn Care Specialist will be there from the moment you arrive home from the hospital, and they will stay with you for the duration of time you contracted them for.

What does 24/7 care look like:

  • Your Nightingale will typically work 16-20 hour shifts, 5-7 days a week.
  • The Newborn Care Specialist will travel to your home and typically stay with you 24/7 throughout the duration of their contract with your family.
  • Assignments can range from 2 weeks to 6 months, with most families booking 24/7 newborn care for around 12 weeks (or until their baby is successfully sleeping through the night). Live-in positions last between 8-12 weeks.

We recommend reaching out to book your live-in 24/7 newborn care 2-3 months before your due date, or earlier if possible. Highly experienced NCS book up quickly!
