Monica Bykov

Medical Advisor

Monica Bykov is a Registered Nurse and Cache Certified Newborn Care Specialist with emphasis on education of maternal newborn care and sleep conditioning babies under 2 years of age. Upon delivering her 1st of four kids, she knew from that moment that becoming a baby nurse is all she ever wanted to do in addition to being a mother and wife.

Having started out as an LVN in 2003 at a local hospital, she immediately took up positions floating between L&D, Nursery, and Postpartum units and was simultaneously trained as an Emergency Cesarean Section Scrub Tech. Two years later, as a Registered Nurse, Monica joined Maxim Healthcare which specialized in care of critically ill infants. After the birth of her 3rd child, she began working with local pediatricians to provide home health postpartum and well-baby visits. Early detection of Jaundice, assistance with breastfeeding and bottle feeding, how to spot if a baby is unwell and when to seek medical intervention, alongside an overall assessment of the home to ensure there was adequate and safe surroundings and living conditions. This care was not only proactive to help detect and help prevent completely avoidable hospital readmittances it also provided support to new parents. This included answering countless important questions that naturally came up once they were home with their newborn.

After delivering her 4th child, Monica took up residency at West Hills Hospital’s Nursery Unit and floated to Postpartum and NICU. During this time, Monica became a surrogate and delivered a beautiful and healthy baby girl for a family she cares greatly for to this day.

Today Monica continues to maintain her RN license by taking continuing education courses within her scope of practice to maintain the most up to date knowledge which is transferred in her guidance to her many clients, and when sought after to friends, family, and fellow colleagues. Alongside her well established Baby Nurse Business, she’s also the founder and inventor of The Butterfly Swaddle of Butterfly Swaddle Inc.

Monica brings not only medical and newborn care experience of 25+ years, but also perspective and understanding of what it’s like to be a teenage mom; what it takes to be a surrogate; and certainly what a huge physical, emotional, and life changing journey that giving life, grieving loss, and parenting comes with.

The need for education and support is undeniable. Monica has made it her life’s greatest achievement second only to being the proudest mom of four incredible children and being a wife to the most loving and supportive husband one could hope for, to help as many families as possible in her lifetime!
