Agency placement fees are separate from the Postpartum Doula, Newborn Care Specialist(NCS), or Nanny hourly rate. All placement fees are due before the placement's start date. Clients are responsible for paying the care staff separately. Clients with full and part time care staff are also legally responsible for withholding the appropriate state and federal taxes. All Clients looking for 24/7 care must offer a pay rate of $25/hour minimum for Postpartum Doulas, and NCS's, and $17/hour minimum for Nannies. The final rate is decided between the family and the care staff. A 4 hour minimum is required for day-shift care staff jobs and 8 hour minimum for night-shift care staff jobs.
All full time and part time placement packages have a guarantee replacement period. All schedules, duties and responsibilities for Nannies are agreed upon between the Client and Nanny. Duties and responsibilities of Postpartum Doula's and Newborn Care Specialist are provided in the working agreement/contract of the individual care staff.
