Why we do what we do
My name is Pam Jones and I am one the co-owners of Sweet Dreams Infant Care. I have been a Registered Nurse for 18 years in Post Partum, Labor & Delivery, NICU, Lactation and Parent Education. For the first 10 years of my career I had never heard of a Baby Nurse!
It wasn’t until I worked at Northwestern Prentice Women’s Hospital my patients would ask me “Will you come home with me and be my Baby Nurse? I would ask, “What is a Baby Nurse?” Then one of the doctors asked me if I would go home with a sick patient and her baby and be her Baby Nurse, so I did and my life changed forever.
Becoming a Baby Nurse I was able to take the time to educate and support the parents in their home and build their confidence. I saw first hand how these services were lacking in the hospitals. Going home with my patients I was able to help them get the rest they needed.
The only bad part was that I was the only RN that was working as a Baby Nurse at the time and I could not keep up with the demand- and I could not tell these sleep deprived mom’s NO!
So I enlisted my then retired sister Pat Porrey who had business experience and a Masters in Psychology to open Sweet Dreams Infant Care with me. Our goal was to be able to reach more parents to provide education, support and SLEEP they so desperately needed. We wanted our agency to be different. We formed relationships. Our team becomes part of your family whether we come in for one day or one year. We are not just an extra pair of hands. We focus on education and support for new parents, and that’s how we have grown from just me to now dozens of amazing RN’s and Baby Nurses. I invite you to experience the difference of our Sweet Dreams Team!
