Having a baby is a life-changing experience. It is physically and emotionally challenging. Along with the joy, many parents feel nervous about the responsibility of having a newborn to look after.
The main aim of a Maternity Nanny is to allow the mother to recuperate in those early weeks following the birth by caring for her and the newborn baby in the comfort of their own home.
This can be particularly useful after a difficult pregnancy or birth. Our responsibilities would be to work with the parents to help with healthy routines, and parenting strategies and offer advice on nursery equipment.
A maternity nanny will work set hours, often throughout the night.
They would normally be self employed and invoice accordingly.
