Newborn Care Specialists work either 12-hour or 24-hour shifts and work minimum 3 to 7 days per week . 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.
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 $22-$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.
