The birth of a baby is a profound and permanent change. For new parents the challenges are numerous - recovery from birth, total responsibility for a tiny baby, sleeplessness or sleep deprivation, emotional adjustment, learning newborn care techniques, understanding and adjusting to the unique personality of their infant.


New parents also need to know what is 'normal' baby growth and development as well as what to expect during the postpartum recovery - especially if a c-section was performed.


So, finding the best and most reliable newborn care for the first 6 months of their baby's life is one of the most important decisions new parents make.


Smooth Transitions is here to help make the process quicker, easier and less stressful.

Multiple studies have found that support, advice and assistance in the weeks and months following birth is extremely important. The ways in which a woman, baby, partner and siblings make the transition to a new family unit have a long-term impact on their physical and emotional health. Newborn Care Specialists fill that gap and help facilitate a smooth and rewarding transition for everyone, including extended family and friends.

Research has confirmed what most of us suspected - new parents who have support, feel secure and cared for during the first 6 months after birth are more successful in adapting. Also, women who are cared for by others and are only expected to nurture themselves and their babies during this time have superior outcomes in postpartum adjustment including breastfeeding success, greater self confidence, and less postpartum depression.

Parents will benefit from education on what to expect from a newborn, baby-soothing skills, feeding, bonding and attachment and coping skills. Other family members benefit from concrete instruction and role modeling on how to support the family effectively and without judgment. In addition, timely referrals to competent, appropriate professionals and support groups made by a Newborn Care Specialist can have a significant positive outcome for a family.

Smooth Transitions has been specializing in Newborn Care Specialist placements for 16 years, making us one of the most established and respected agencies in Colorado.

"Smooth Transitions is really fitting because it helped transitioned me from being a mother of one to being a mother of 3 and having the confidence that I could do this. I was able to get much needed sleep. Women go through a very vulnerable time after having a baby, dealing with hormones, lack of sleep, everyday life. I think I could have been quite vulnerable to postpartum depression because of not getting enough sleep to handle a six year old and two babies so the fact that I was able to get sleep helped. My OBGYN said I needed to get 5 hours of uninterrupted sleep and go outside, get exercise. Because of Smooth Transitions I was able to get that."
