A maternity nurse, also known as a post-natal carer or baby nurse, is skilled in supporting, caring for and teaching new parents how to care for their newborn baby while allowing parents the time to rest and recover from the birth of their baby. They act as an endless source of advice, reassurance and guidance.
Maternity nurses are generally required to work five or six days a week, 24 hours a day (with rest periods). Alternatively, some maternity nurses cover an 8 -12 hour period, night or day.
All our maternity nurses will have a minimum of 3 years’ experience caring for newborn babies and have verified and checkable references available on request. We can assist families wherever they are based in the world.
