"Maternity Mum was extremely helpful and efficient in finding me a lovely experienced maternity nurse for my 12 week old baby, who was suffering from reflux. I was sleep deprived and struggling with breastfeeding. Cheryl gave me both practical advice and emotional support, thank you."

Over my 20 years career as a midwife and maternity nurse, I have had the privilege of caring for hundreds of mums and their newborn babies. I love nurturing relationships between parents, families and their babies.
As a mum myself I am aware of the importance for mums to rest and recuperate following childbirth and in the early postnatal period and the many benefits of having an experienced, knowledgeable maternity nurse to offer guidance and support.
I am organised, resourceful and dedicated to helping families find their perfect maternity nurse.
Night Nanny/ Night Nannies
A night nanny, also referred to as a night maternity nurse will arrive at your home from 10 pm, or earlier if you request until 6 or 7 am. The night nanny will share a bedroom with your baby and carry out all the night feeds and baby cares. If mum is breastfeeding, the night nanny can bring the baby to mum to feed. She will be there to support mum whilst she is breastfeeding, ensuring that mum is well hydrated. Then whilst mum rests, the night nanny will continue with the baby cares, winding, nappy changes and settling the baby back to sleep. The night nanny service is perfect to allow exhausted parents to catch up on some much needed sleep.
One of the most important values which our maternity nurse agency adhere to, is that each client is unique and no situation is the same. Parents have different styles of parenting and different routines and schedules they set, which is why the maternity nurses need to be able to adapt to all of this.
There are also health issues that need to be taken into consideration, such as postnatal depression. In order to do this, we take into account the needs of the client and carefully match them with a maternity nurse with the right qualifications and experience. It is key that we provide the best possible service to every single one of our clients.
Client satisfaction is something that is massively important to our maternity nurse agency, and the endless positive testimonials both on our website and on Facebook are proof that the service that we offer is an excellent one.
