Maternity Nurse

Looking for a Maternity Nurse?

We are a Nanny Agency who families Have Trusted Since 2018.
Whether you’re looking for overnight care, daytime care, or even 24 hour care, we work with a large pool of highly-qualified Nannies and Maternity Nurses with a varying and diverse set of scheduling capabilities.

Our Maternity Nurses care for infants from newborn up to one year and are most specialised in the first 12 weeks to 6 months of development. They will work to establish a sleeping and feeding pattern with the infant based on the parents’ preferences and baby’s needs. They typically work a 20 hour “live-in” position or a 12 hour night-time shift between 5 and 6 days per week. (they can also be live out if they are 12 hour shift days or night)

 

Their duties are often transferred to a nanny once the infants are on a structured sleeping and feeding schedule.
We recommend you start your search for a Maternity Nurse Specialist as early as the beginning of your 3rd trimester. We have newborn care specialists that are booked as early as six months in advance.
We would be happy to help with any last-minute placements if your baby is on the way or already home.

Studies show that hiring the right caregiver can radically affect your child’s development. Our meticulously screened  Maternity Nurses typically have advanced training and certificates in newborn care and can help you with:
