Post Partum Doulas And Newborn Care Specialists (Baby Nurse)

Important Message from Park Slope Parents (PSP): 

We urge you to take special care and check multiple references for the caretakers listed her and ask about their specific credentials.  Some use the term "nurse" without having a medical degree. While this is colloquial and we do not think people do this to intentionally to mislead, it may give some employers a false sense of credibility when hiring a "baby nurse' or "night nurse."

That said, we know that many of the people our members have hired for these jobs (and recommended below) are GIFTED in their ability to take care of newborns and that folks have had great experiences. We want our members to have the ability to post about their first-hand experiences with these people. At the same time, we urge potential employers to do their due diligence and investigate the credentials of the people they are seeking to hire for these jobs.
