For Nannies, Newborn Care Specialists, and Postpartum Doulas
With a stay at home order issued to places all over the world, it’s no surprise to find many newborns arriving come winter of 2020! Let’s face it, everyone is at home with limited activities which can lead to, well you get the idea. We love the idea of so many sweet babies entering this world but we are afraid many may not be prepared. Studies show that there will be an estimate of 6,000 extra babies born each month this winter (Puente, 2020). With an increase in babies due to the Coronavirus, it's important that you as a nanny, newborn care specialist, or postpartum doula prepare! Join us for this special series on prepping for Corona Babies as we start off with Part 1 for nannies, newborn care specialists, and postpartum doulas.
If things have slowed down for you, take advantage of this downtime and advance your knowledge in newborn care. These extra skills could be the result of more opportunities so don't pass it up.
We are here to help you through this process too! With Newborn Care Solutions, you will be able to gain advanced knowledge and skills when it comes to caring for a newborn by completing our courses here at Newborn Care Solutions. We offer anything from Foundational Newborn Care Specialist Training to even more Advanced Newborn Care Training courses and everything in between.
Our Foundational Newborn Care Specialist Training course is CACHE accredited and counts toward CAPPA CEU's. With our courses, you are able to stand out amongst other candidates as well as increase your value with higher rates with this training under your belt!
Take time now to prepare before the influx of babies to learn something new or freshen up. Maybe you have been in the field for a while or maybe there's an area you lack knowledge in.
It would be a great time to learn more about:
As you learn something new or freshen up your skillset, you will be more marketable & have a boost of confidence with scenarios in the field!
Another great way to make sure you stand out as a newborn care specialist is to work on that resume. Update it with your skills, experience, and training. Create a new cover letter. Then get busy with applying for agencies to be in their pool of candidates.
We even have a course that can help with navigating the current changes in the market with our Standing Up and Standing Out In Difficult Times Course.
Catch up on some zzz's before winter when all the new babies arrive. Practice some self-care and enjoy some downtime before the rush of babies! Hopefully, travel will pick back up, and maybe you can plan a fun vacation too!
As you can see there are different ways to get ready for the Corona Babies coming Winter 2020! We sure hope all of these tips will help you with the preparations! Be sure to stay tuned for the other part of our series too!
We’d love to hear your thoughts; do you believe there will be a huge influx of Corona Babies too?
