I will do your life easier and my duties will include all aspects of the baby’s care: bathing, nappy changing, feeding (if mother is not breast feeding) and laundry, as well as cleaning and tidying the baby’s bedroom or nursery.
A key part of my duty is to care for the baby so that mum is sure to get sufficient rest, bringing baby to her if a feed is required. I will be available round the clock.
Maternity Nurses’ Flexibility
It is possible to have a Maternity Nurse for days or nights only.
Although as a Maternity Nurse I will be 'on call' 24-hours a day it is advisable to remember I will need some sleep!
It is highly recommended if you allow your Maternity Nurse at least a couple of hours a day to catch up on sleep or to have some 'time out'. I will be fresher to go on duty!
