Norland Maternity Nurses
Norland Maternity Nurses are fully trained Norland Nannies who have between 1 and 20 years nannying experience and are either qualified through experience or have undergone further training (a Maternity Nurse Course) specifically in the care of new born babies and new mothers.
Maternity nurses work 24 hours a day for 5 or 6 days a week. They help care for the newborn baby and support and guide the mother.
Maternity nurses tend to sleep in the same room as the baby at night so that they can deal with the night feeds ensuring minimal disturbance to the rest of the family. If you are breast feeding, the maternity nurse may bring the baby to you to be fed and resettle the baby afterwards.
The Maternity Nurse will work with the mother supporting her in the care of her new born, including, when appropriate, giving guidance and support on techniques for bathing, feeding (either breast or bottle) and routines.
Points to note
It is normal practice for a maternity nurse to request a retainer (a holding fee), should your baby arrive after the agreed start date. The retainer is usually equal to 50% of their salary from the agreed start date. On commencement of employment (e.g. on baby’s arrival) this will increase to the agreed rate. In the event of a premature birth your booked maternity nurse may not be available, however the Agency will do all it can to replace her and find another maternity nurse to fill in until your booked maternity nurse can start. Placements are usually from 4 weeks up to 12 weeks. Maternity nurses are self-employed. Rates vary according to the maternity nurse's age and experience and whether she is responsible for a single baby, twins or triplets.
