Nothing is more important than finding the right person to help you in your home with your baby. We are here to help you find that person, ensuring that they are exactly the right fit for you and your family, meeting your requirements.
All our maternity nurses and night nannies come with enhanced DBS check (previously termed CRB), paediatric first aid certification, varied qualifications and excellent references. We insist on personally checking every reference verbally to ensure that we have only the most recommended individuals on our books.
Maternity nurses are here to help you with your baby when you come home from hospital or whenever you feel you may need some extra support. Our maternity nurses all have extensive experience working with new-borns, are fully qualified to bottle feed, support breast feeding and importantly to help look after mum as well as baby in those crucial first few weeks. Depending on how long they stay and your wishes, they may also help gently guide your baby into healthy sleeping habits and a routine.
Night nannies are here to give you a good night’s rest safe in the knowledge that your baby is in good hands. They will be qualified to bottle feed your baby, change their nappies, wind them and help settle them to sleep. Most arrive at 9 or 10pm at night and leave in the morning, enabling you to enjoy a few hours of uninterrupted sleep. If you are breastfeeding, the nanny may bring the baby into you to feed, but will then wind and settle, allowing you to go back to sleep straight away.
Sometimes, try as we may, our babies struggle to sleep through the night, leaving parents feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. We are all parents ourselves and can completely empathise with the demands that becoming a parent brings.
Our team of specialists offer a wealth of knowledge and advice helping parents adopt healthy sleeping habits and routines for their babies and young children. We know that every child is different and we aim to work with families to create a tailor made plan that takes into account the needs of each family. We will teach parents to anticipate their baby's signals (feeding and ones of tiredness) and develop a sleeping strategy that is essential for their baby's development and growth. Our solutions are always gentle and safe designed to follow our instinct to love and cherish our children.

Please email or call Amanda on 07798 653 049 to register your interest or book a maternity nurse/ night nanny. We will then find you some suitable applicants. We strongly encourage you to meet the maternity nurse or night nanny before confirming your booking and can help you with a list of suggested subjects and questions to cover.
Our nannies come with a large range of qualifications and experiences. Some mums may be looking for more of a “mother’s help”, someone to help with the domestic chores and do some babysitting, whilst others may be looking for a fully qualified nanny to look after their baby or children full time whilst they go back to work. Whatever you are looking for, and whether that be for part time or full time work, please do email Amanda to discuss your precise requirements.
