What to expect from your Maternity or Night Nurse?
A Maternity nurse is a baby care specialist - typically joining your household right after the birth of your baby, although sometimes this service can be used several weeks/months into your baby’s development in order to assist with ongoing or new issues
Maternity nurses assist the parent/s in putting the baby into a sleep and feed routine. Where needed, they will assist in breastfeeding, bottle feeding or transition between, expressing and later on weaning. They often offer invaluable advice to new parents in how to best care for your new baby.
Whilst maternity nurses are not usually medically trained, they often come with a wealth of experience and are able to spot early signs of and advise on various medical issues often seen in baby’s early development. They will also often have many contacts for relevant professionals who may be able to assist if required.
A maternity or night nurse can sleep in your baby’s room or separately, depending on your preference
Maternity nurses specialise in baby care (typically between 0-6 months of age) but can sometimes assist with older siblings as well, especially to help introduce new baby into the family dynamics and help with sibling rivalry

Bathing your baby
Sleep & feed routine
Preparation of the nursery ahead of birth
Washing your baby’s clothes
Providing advice and assistance on daily basis
