Need a Boston Baby Nurse?

Posted in

If you’re looking for a Boston baby nurse, you’ve come to the right place. Because, that’s what we do! Let’s clarify though- we aren’t all nurses. We are mostly Newborn Care Specialists and Postpartum Doulas. We specialize in overnight newborn care [and live-in newborn care aka 24/7 newborn care!]

Why do you need a Boston Baby Nurse?

Usually these are the big reasons:

  • Stressed
  • Overwhelmed
  • Tired
  • Confused
  • Want the opportunity to get more sleep
  • Want more, well-rested quality time with baby during the day 

We’ve honestly worked with moms and dads in every context you can imagine, so whatever your initial reason for considering a Boston baby nurse is, we’ve probably seen it or heard it.

How do parents choose a baby nurse?

Now, in terms of evaluating the baby nurse or night nurse you eventually use, this is what we’ve found people rely on:

  • Trusted evaluations from their friends
  • Recommendations/referrals
  • Cost

What does a Boston Baby Nurse Cost?

Cost shouldn’t be No. 1 — this is your child, after all — but we understand it’s a factor. We unfortunately can’t post our rates in a blog, because they change slightly with inflation over time . But please ask us and we are happy to share our overnight rates with you.

Most agencies in the area charge within a few dollars of each other, and individual rates of Boston postpartum doulas and Boston newborn care specialists can vary greatly.

What factors into the cost?

Our team members go through a thorough vetting process involving extensive background checks, reference checks and verification of trainings, CPR, socials and work history. Nightingales only hires the best baby nurses available in Boston. We’ve been told by many team members that our process is the most rigorous that they’ve gone through compared to other agencies. 

On the recommendations and references side, we have great ones. Just ask [Or just read!]! We are extremely confident in our Boston baby nurse team and their abilities to soothe, support and get babies to SLEEP.

When babies sleep better, parents sleep better. We aren’t just coming into your home to hold your baby, it’s more than that. Our goal is a well-rested and well educated family that can leave our care feeling supported and confident on their parenting journey.

Our commitment to newborn care goes beyond our in-home team. We have a dedicated admin team and systems in place that we are constantly improving. Our parents have shared how organized and seamless our process is compared to other experiences they have had. We work with each parent to find a schedule and team member that works for them, taking into account their individual needs, preferences, and expectations. We understand that every family is unique, and we strive to provide personalized care that meets their specific requirements.

If you’re interested in considering this, feel free to contact us.

Final thought: there are great newborn care specialists and postpartum doulas all over Boston. We’ve even studied and worked with many of them. But this is your family and your baby, so obviously you want the best Boston baby nurse you can find. So do your research, ask your friends/neighbors, set up a call with us and see how it feels- and if you’re interested after you do your part, we’d love to potentially support your growing family!
