Loving Maternity

Maternity Nurse, National and International positions
With my daughter Rebeca.


My name is Esther; I am from Spain; however I am fluent in English. I am in my late forties and I am a very polite, dynamic, energetic and healthy lady. During my whole life I have been dedicated to dealing with children and adults due to my different professional experiences.



First and foremost I am a mother, however my daughter Rebeca is currently a grown up, living independently now in North Spain, this has now given me the opportunity to live abroad from time to time and to work with international families, something which I really love!
