We have postpartum doulas, newborn care specialists, licensed practical nurses, or registered nurses on the team that specialize in working with newborns for the first few months of their life. All team members hired by QCNC have different strengths, so if you have a particular area you're concerned about (such as breastfeeding, multiples experience, postpartum mood disorders, or medical needs), we can find someone with experience to match!

Travel + Live-In Care
We offer live-in care! This includes 4 hours off each day to shower and rest. This is a great option for parents recovering from a cesarean section, no family in town to help, or a family expecting multiples.
With traveling, all airfare, lodging, meals, and transportation fees will be paid by the family. An overnight flat rate is required if her services are not needed in the evenings. A minimum of 8 hours per day of paid work is required and those hours can be split at the discretion of the family and the newborn specialist (for example – 4 hours every morning and 4 hours every evening, 8 hour overnight shifts, 8 hour daytime shifts, etc). Great for a family going on a vacation or parents who have to travel for work and are breastfeeding or don't want to be away from their little one.
