    Infant Care Specialist
  • Overview

    Two very wonderful fathers are preparing to welcome two beautiful baby girls to their warm and loving home in Washington, DC and are looking for the most supportive and knowledgeable newborn care specialist available. In this role, you'll have the opportunity to support these fathers in their transition to being a family of four. Their first daughter is due December 25th and will be born in Pennsylvania, via surrogate. Their second daughter is due January 23rd and will be born in Colorado, also via surrogate. Welcoming these babies will be a carefully choreographed and amazing race that will require a true professional who is organized and also very adaptable. 

     

    When baby #1 is born the family would like to have their NCS join them in Pennsylvania and stay locally for a few days. They will then travel as a family of three back to Washington, DC and settle in for a few weeks. After a few weeks of adjustment, the family of three and their NCS will head to Colorado to await baby #2's arrival. After the second baby is born, the family will recuperate in Denver for a few days before heading back to Washington, DC. 

     

    This family is looking for someone who has a second nature with newborns and adaptable to ever-changing situations. If you have experience traveling with newborns, assisting with early bonding, working with formula and breast milk, and are open to supporting two new parents in their greatest adventure - this might be the perfect role for you! These fathers have been planning and hoping for a family for years and this is more than a job, you will get to join them on a journey to see their dreams come true! 

     

    Accommodations will be provided in their beautiful home in Washington, DC and where ever they travel. They will provide at least 8 hours off every day and do their best to provide two consecutive days off every week. The compensation is negotiable depending on a candidates level of experience and fees. 

     

    The hope is the NCS will stay through the spring and then help transition a full-time nanny into the long-term role. They are also open to hiring an NCS who would want to stay with them long-term. That nanny may be in place soon after the arrival of the first baby and will work alongside you to provide a continuation of care. 

     

    This position is open to candidates who are available December 15th, 2018 - May 31st, 2019 and willing to be on-call or possibly working over the 2018 Christmas and New Year holidays.
