What you can expect from your Maternity Nurse

What you can expect from your Maternity Nurse

Maternity Nurses are trained or experienced nurses or nannies who specialise in the care of newborn babies.

A Maternity Nurse will help the mother from the time she leaves hospital until both mother and baby are settled into a routine at home.

This is normally a period of between 4-8 weeks; however the amount of time you wish to book a Maternity Nurse is totally flexible and will depend on individual circumstances.

Flexibility Depending On Your Needs

A Maternity Nurse will be on call 24 hours a day for 5 or 6 days a week.

However this can be flexible depending on individual needs and the Maternity Nurse you employ.

It is possible to have a Maternity Nurse for days only or nights only. Please remember that although Maternity Nurses are ‘on call’ 24-hours a day they do need some sleep!

We recommend that you allow your Maternity Nurse at least a couple of hours a day to catch up on sleep or to have some ‘time out’.
