Maternity care at home

If you need extra support at home with a newborn baby (or twins or triplets), we can help you find a highly qualified professional to help you how, when & where you need it the most.

A maternity nurse, or night nanny, provides families with expert, specialist care for baby and mum during the first few weeks after birth in the comfort of their own home.  Such invaluable support is there exactly when and where you need it, to help you adjust to your new family member and establish good feeding and sleeping routines.

Night Nanny for baby

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.

Why hire a maternity nurse or night nanny?

Each family has their own reasons for employing a maternity nurse or night nanny. Commonly, the support is most required where mum needs to recover from the birth or a caesarean section, with multiple births, where one or both parents need to return to work quickly, or for specialist support for breast-feeding, colic and sleeping problems. Some families, especially where both parents work, choose to employ a maternity care specialist to ensure they are rested enough to return to work – sometimes until baby is sleeping through. Our maternity care providers have extensive medical experience and training in post-natal care and their main role is to look after mum and her newborn. Your nurse can stay for as little as a week, or for a few months until you’re well settled and confident. Families that employ a maternity nurse or night nanny state that the main benefit was to be able to rest and recuperate knowing that a professional has everything looked after.
