Daytime Maternity Nurse

Our Daytime Postnatal Maternity Nurses are highly experienced and specialise in caring for babies from birth. They will usually support mothers from when the baby is born and help to set up a routine.  Maternity Nurses will normally be with the family for 4-12 weeks, depending on individual needs.  Daytime Maternity Nurses can work up to 12 hours/day.  This service is ideal for parents who require our services but does not have a spare room for the maternity nurse to stay overnight.

They will set up a routine for your baby and ensure that your baby is feeding and sleeping well through the day​. They will provide practical support on issues arising, your baby’s developmental milestones, information, and guidance on infant feeding (whether breast, formula or mixed feeding).  They will give practical support with the care of your baby.
