Postpartum Services & Baby Nurses

 Baby Nurses & Postpartum Services in Colorado

Baby Nurse in Colorado

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, but the reality is that these providers do not have current nursing degrees, and the term is actually illegal to use in many states. Anyone claiming to be a baby nurse should be able to provide proof of a nursing degree and be compensated appropriately. Below is a quick chart showing the difference between a postpartum doula and a “baby nurse”.
