Maternity Nurses

 

Maternity Nurses are either specifically trained professionals or very experienced Nannies who have a plethora of knowledge and experience caring for newborns.

It is typical for maternity nurses to reside at the residence they work in as they are also required to be on call twenty-four hours a day, five or six days a week.

They are primarily responsible for the care of your newborn child and typically remain with a family for anywhere between six and twelve weeks, depending on how long you require their assistance.

We work closely with our partner and friend Katie-Jane Crosbie, who is the owner of Agency By Katie-Jane, a world class maternity nurse specialist agency. 

The duties of a maternity nurse include providing support for the family, doing the washing for the newborn, sterilising, and preparing the baby’s formula, as well as calming the baby and helping them establish a routine.

A Maternity Nurse can make anywhere from £200 to £300 net every 24 hours of work, the exact amount depending on their age and level of expertise.

It is up to individual maternity nurses to pay their own taxes and contribute to national insurance.

Testimonials

What our clients love about us

The quality of candidates that Penny sent me to interview was outstanding. Every nanny was extremely professional, we are very happy with our final decision. Our children settled straight away and the bond that our nanny has with them is beautiful. Thankyou for everything Penny. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you and your agency. You thoroughly deserve the success you have

Shelton Hindley

Glossop, Derbyshire

Choosing a nanny was a very daunting time for me as I had to go back to work very early, Penny came to my home, totally put me at ease and was extremely professional. Her skill at matching the perfect nanny to the right family is amazing!!!! Four years and two children later my nanny and I are still working together in a very happy home

Jessica Layton

I just wanted to say Thankyou for finding us our very own Mary Poppins. It is very easy to see that Penny works extremely hard on behalf of her nannies and the families, only the highest calibre of nannies came through my front door. Every nanny that we interviewed spoke so highly of Penny, too. I’m not sure if it’s the fact that Penny has got 20 years of nannying experience behind her or just that she is very intuitive but whatever it is she is amazing at her job!!!
