A newborn care specialist is a professional who specializes in the care of newborn babies. Their primary focus is on the baby's needs, although they may also provide emotional support and guidance to new parents. They typically have extensive training and experience in newborn care, including feeding, sleep shaping, and developmental milestones. They can provide practical support and education to new parents on breastfeeding, bottle-feeding, diapering, bathing, and soothing techniques.
They may also offer guidance on establishing routines and schedules for the baby and assist with household tasks such as baby laundry.
On the other hand, a postpartum doula is a professional who provides emotional and practical support to new parents during the postpartum period. They can help with breastfeeding support, meal preparation, light housekeeping, and running errands. They may also provide emotional support, including listening to new parents' concerns, helping them process their birth experience, and offering guidance on self-care. The postpartum doula's primary focus is on the entire family's well-being, including the new mother's physical and emotional recovery and supporting the new parents in their transition to parenthood.
