What is a maternity nurse?
For many new parents, a Maternity Nurse is the shining light at the end of the tunnel! Often qualified but more importantly, very experienced in the care of postnatal mothers and newborn babies. A maternity Nurse is skilled in supporting, caring for and teaching new parents how to care for their newborn baby while also allowing parents the time to rest and recover from the birth of their baby.
Whether baby is breast or bottle fed, a Maternity Nurse will advise and carry out all duties relating to the care of mother and baby during those first crucial weeks following the birth. She will perform “nursery duties” meaning she will take care of all aspects of the baby’s care including washing of baby items and keeping the nursery and feeding equipment clean and tidy. Some parents may simply require the help of a Maternity Nurse to “take over” when they need a rest so it depends on the individual requirements of the family when it comes to the specific duties.
A Maternity Nurse usually lives-in and is on duty 24 hours a day up to six days a week. That said, it is important that your Maternity Nurse is allowed to have sufficient breaks to enable her to catch up on her own sleep, ensuring that she is fit and well enough to care for your baby while on duty.
We have great maternity nurses on our books.
