Maternity nurse and night nanny care in Manchester

A maternity nurse or night nanny is there to support your family both emotionally and practically during the first few months of bringing a newborn home. Not all families have the benefit of close family to help and so an expert in the field can be an invaluable pillar of support.

A maternity nurse or night nanny can be of great benefit to the following families:

  • Where labour has been complicated and mum needs extra help
  • Where parents have twins, triplets or existing children and need an extra pair of hands
  • Where one or both parents work nights
  • Where baby has some health issues such as colic or reflux
  • Where one or more parent needs to get sufficient rest for work
  • Where establishing a routine as early as possible is important
  • Where family support isn’t close by
  • Where mum needs to return to work quickly

Maternity nurses and night nannies are trained specifically to care for newborn babies and mums and can help families learn how to care for their new arrival and establish routines and feeding schedules that fit their family dynamic. A maternity nurse or night nanny can also help teach your baby how to sleep through the night which is a challenge faced by most parents.

What is a night nanny?

A night nanny provides support from evening until morning and helps look after your baby and enables mum to rest.  If you’re breast-feeding, your night nanny can bring baby to mum for a feed and then settle the baby back to sleep.

What is a maternity nurse?

A maternity nurse provides support on an almost 24 hour basis (usually 1 day off per week and some time during the day to rest) and is there to help establish routines and enable mum to rest and recuperate.

Benefits of hiring a maternity nurse or night nanny

The main benefit to hiring a maternity nurse of night nanny is the ability for mum to rest and recuperate after the birth.  Mothers that have complications or a cesarian section are particularly aided by the additional help which helps mum get back on her feet quicker and able to resume ‘normal service’.

Your maternity nurse or night nanny can also keep everything related to your baby clean, tidy, and washed, and also assist with preparing feeds and steralising equipment, allowing mum to spend quality time with her baby or resting. Your nanny can also provide one-on-one support with breast-feeding.

  • Maternity nurses will also support you with bathing your baby, bottle sterilisation, maintaining the nursery and laundering the babies clothes.
