Meet the board

Newborn Care Specialist Association 2024

We are excited to announce that the NCSA has now transitioned to a Non-profit Organization and now has an amazingly strong board of Directors made up of NCSs who all have been working within the newborn care specialist industry for many years and have already played a part of shaping its' growth.

None of the board are NCS trainers or have any affiliations with any of the training academies who are approved for certification with the NCSA but all have been chosen for their ongoing work within the NCS community either by helping newer NCSs through direct mentorship or ongoing support answering questions in the NCS groups.  All are well respected NCSs within our industry and are fully committed to joining together to take the NCSA to the next level, please welcome ….
