Baby Nurses

    Wee Care represents only the preeminent Baby Nurse's in the industry and they come with the highest recommendations. Our Baby Nurses and Postpartum Doulas are experienced newborn specialists proficient in all areas of newborn baby care and parental support and education. Whether you need loving care for your baby so you can get some well-deserved sleep, an expert in the care of multiples, getting a newborn on a sleep schedule or just an extra pair of hands, Wee Care Nanny can provide a Baby Nurse or Postpartum Doula that meets your needs.

    Baby Nurses are compassionate newborn specialists who generally work 12- or 24-hour shifts for a short period of time (usually 1 to 20 weeks). They assist new moms with every aspect of baby care--washing and sterilizing bottles, assisting with feedings, maintaining the nursery, changing diapers, helping to set up a sleep schedule, and keeping daily logs. Baby Nurses typically do not have any duties outside of the nursery.

    Postpartum Doulas primarily care for the needs of new mothers. Many new mothers require a few days or weeks to recuperate from childbirth, but they still want to shoulder the lionís share of their babyís physical care. A breastfeeding mother may ask a doula to go to the supermarket while she nurses, have her prepare simple meals and snacks, and rely on her for light household tasks such as doing laundry or taking phone messages. A Postpartum Doula may also play with older children so the mother can rest. She may work a few hours during the day or stay overnight.

Agency fee:

The agency fee is a percentage of the total gross compensation paid to the newborn specialist during employment. Because we represent the most sought after Baby Nurses in the industry, a deposit is required in order to reserve a Baby Nurse for your family. The deposit will be applied towards the agency fee.

What can I expect to pay my newborn specialist?

The rates newborn specialists charge will vary based on their experience, education, job details, location of assignment and number of newborns to be cared for. We will work with you and the newborn specialist to determine an appropriate compensation.

Gift Certificates:

For the mom-to-be in your life, a baby nurse or doula gift certificate makes a wonderful present from a grandparent or other loving family member that wants to help and share in the upcoming joyful experience. Gift Certificates can be purchased for any amount and are good for up to 18 months from the date of purchase.
