Maternity Nurse

Maternity Nurse

A Maternity Nurse is a dedicated professional who is experienced in caring for both newborn babies and their mums. They offer support and guidance to parents in the first few weeks following the birth of a new baby. A maternity nurse will help establish a suitable routine for your baby and can advise on all aspects of newborn care, allowing you the time to get back on your feet so you can fully enjoy being a new parent.

 

The duties of a Maternity Nurse include:

  • Support mum and baby at all times to ensure both are healthy and happy.
  • Provide advice and practical support on full care for a newborn baby.
  • Helping to establish daily routines and sleeping patterns.
  • Support baby’s feed by breast or bottle.
  • Sterilise bottles and prepare milk feeds.
  • Baby’s laundry and keeping baby’s nursery clean and tidy.
  • Provide new parents with both physical and emotional support.
  • Can prepare light meals for the mother.

 

Hours

Maternity Nurses usually live in and will work up to 24 hours a day, 5 or 6 days a week and can be booked depending on your requirements.

Daily maternity nurses live out and usually work between 10 and 12 hours per day up to six days per week. Daily maternity nurses have the same knowledge and experience and are ideal for families who have limited space or who prefer not to have someone living in.

 

Accommodation and food
Maternity nurses generally sleep in the same room as the baby and they should have access and use of a bathroom.
Food is provided and paid for by the employer.

Maternity Nanny

Maternity Nanny

Maternity nannies are very experienced nannies with expertise in caring for newborn babies, their role is to establish a suitable routine for baby/babies and to advise parents on all aspects of care, hygiene and feeding.  Although they may be less experienced than a maternity nurse and may not hold formal maternity care qualifications, maternity nannies will undertake similar duties to maternity nurses and can be a better option for families where there are other siblings, as they will happily entertain and care for older siblings, do school runs and organise activities.

 

The duties of a Maternity Nanny include:

  • Support mum and baby at all times to ensure both are healthy and happy.
  • Providing practical help and support with full care of the baby including winding, nappy changing, bathing, dressing/undressing.
