We are experienced and compassionate, educated in caring for women and their families in the antepartum or postpartum periods. We provide, moral, physical, educational and emotional support at a time when women themselves need "mothering." The mother and baby are always the primary focus.
We are highly educated in newborn assessment, mother/baby care, breast and/or bottle feeding assistance, breast pump instruction, sibling support and much more. We will provide loving support during an emotional and exhausting time.
We are experts in multiples, preemies, and reflux. We assist in making the transition from an individual, couple, to confident parents. We will also care for new moms post c-section, and will care for moms that have had a difficult delivery or traumatic birth.
We will teach you all the basics of baby care and infant care and what to expect for the entire first year of baby's life. We will teach CPR, and offer lactation consulting services, for those moms who chose to breast feed their infant.
We can cook a dinner, shop if needed, and watch the baby so mom can get needed rest. We will offer concierge services, ordering and suggesting supplies for the baby and mom. We will maintain the nursery and reorder or purchase supplies as needed.
The best thing my husband and I did was to get help the first 2 weeks the baby was home. I had a c section in the hospital and there's no one better than Traveling Baby Nurse! She has over 30 years of experience in all levels of caring for babies (from critical care in the hospital to caring for babies in their homes). She took amazing care of our little one and of me and my husband as well. She made sure I was able to recover by keeping us well fed and rested. She also educated us regarding taking proper care of our baby. I'm a nurse but I was lost with newborn care-she left me feeling more secure and confident. She is also the type of person you don't mind having in your home (I was a bit nervous about that as well). She was great and in the end we made a new friend. Oh, and she's willing to be there for you with questions/concerns long after she leaves your home.
I employed Traveling Baby Nurse to be our nurse to help assist with the care of my newborn daughter and with my special needs son who was four at the time. With no family to help, I sought their services because of the complications I had with the delivery of my son and I was anticipating that history would repeat itself. Not only did the Nurse take excellent care of my son while I was delivering my daughter but she, in fact, saved my life. When I came home from the hospital, it was only a few hours before I developed an infection. I became septic and almost lost my life. I spent the following two weeks in the hospital fighting the infection while the Nurse was at my home caring for my daughter and my son I couldn't care for. If it wasn't for Traveling Baby Nurse, I never would've known that I was toxic and that I I had to seek immediate medical attention. They were the most terrifying and difficult two weeks of my life. Traveling Baby Nurse made it so much for me and gave me peace of mind knowing that my special needs son was loving, capable, experienced, educated hands. She dressed up my kids in their Sunday best and Skyped with me so I could see them since they couldn't come and visit me. Traveling Baby Nurse's knowledge, experience and compassion is worth every penny and more.
I cannot say enough good things about Traveling Baby Nurse. I wish she could've stayed forever. I loved that she is the most patient person on earth and took the time to answer every question carefully and gently. She is still responsive to me via email and phone and Facebook too! I've never been around babies and had no clue how to do anything. Traveling Baby Nurse taught me how to care for my son, and while I was still hormonal and uncomfortable / in pain from giving birth, she also made me learn how to enjoy my son!
