Newborn Care Specialists work either 12-hour or 24-hour shifts. Terms vary in length between 1 to 6 months, and can start as early as the day of birth. Typically, families hire an NCS for approximately 16 weeks, or until their baby is successfully sleeping through the night.
Rates for Newborn Care Specialists can range from $20-$40 per hour for Singles; rates increase for twin and triplet care by $5-10 per hour.
On-call services are not available at this time. Depending on experience, qualifications, and the number of children (singleton or multiples), rates for Newborn Care Specialists can range from $20-$40/hr. YesBabyCare recommends booking your Newborn Care Specialist at least 2-3 months prior to your due date as highly experienced candidates book up quickly.
