Congratulations on your new baby!
As a knowledgable Registered Nurse with 40 years of professional experience, I want to encourage, educate, and empower you with the skills you need. Together, we can provide a safe and healthy transition from the hospital to home. Instilling a confidence in parenting that will last a lifetime.
North Florida Baby Nurse
Jean M. Clark R.N.
Having a baby in 2019 means the Mom and baby usually go home the day after a vaginal delivery. Most Moms are still exhausted from labor and delivery however, and they find themselves waking up every 2-3 hours breast feed their baby. I am here to help.
Who I am and what do I do?
I am an RN who specializes in newborn care. I am nationally certified in Neonatal Intensive care nursing. I have been in the hospital setting for 40 years with over 20 of those years in the NICU. I also have cared for many newborns and pediatric patients in the home care setting. As an RN who is licensed in several states, I must adhere to strict educational requirements for training and relicensing every 2 years. I am current in my Neonatal Resuscitation and BLS/CPR certifications all available per your request. My immunizations are kept up to date as I have also done international medical missions work for the last 18 years which is a joy for me to do. My goal is to provide the best education and guidance for you and your family, making you the best advocate for your newborn.
Why hire a Registered Nurse?
After birth a newborn is carefully assessed by Doctors and nurses using professional skills developed by working with many newborns. During the first weeks of life a newborn goes through many changes, the biggest change happens going from inside the womb to outside this protective environment. The circulation is different as well as now the baby must be fed to survive. My many years of experience with newborns will help this transition to be successful. While I am with your newborn during the night, I will be performing skilled nursing assessments, monitoring and documenting Vital signs, keeping track of your baby's intake and output. This will give you a detailed written record at the end of every shift to refer to. Making communication with your baby's Pediatrician much easier for you to address any concerns.
Specific situations that North Fl. Baby nurse services are most beneficial are:
Premature infants transitioning from NICU to the home setting
First time Parents
Mothers recovering from C- Section
Newborns being discharged from any prolonged hospitalization
Prolonged sleep deprivation of parents due to a newborn

Me and my family highly recommend Jean. She took care of our 24 weeker in the NICU At SHANDS in Gainesville, Florida for 4 months. She not only took care of Emmie, but she became a lifelong family friend. We were so blessed to have Jean and a number of other wonderful nurses care for our sweet Emmie and Ellie! (....) Jean always took great care of Emmie, and she did a great job explaining things to our family about Emmie’s care. Even after Emmie came home from the hospital, Jean took care of Emmie several times in our home! I highly recommend Jean and her services. - Rebecca West
I have known Jean since the early 80s. Met her when I worked with her in the NICU. She is an excellent nurse and I would absolutely without reservation let her care for my own children / grandchildren. -Marilyn Walsh Morgan
