Baby Nurse & Overnight Postpartum Care in Denver Colorado

What’s the difference between a Baby Nurse, a Postpartum

Doula, and a Newborn Care Specialist?

What Is  A Baby Nurse?

The term baby nurse has become a general term used in the U.S. to describe a person who cares for your baby at night. This term gives the impression of a trained medical nurse, in your home to care for your baby. The reality is that these providers do not have current nursing degrees, and the term is actually illegal to use in many states. Additionally, anyone claiming to be one should be able to provide proof of a nursing degree and be compensated appropriately. Below is a quick chart showing the differences.
