Maternity Nurses and Doulas
What is a maternity nurse?
A maternity nurse offers at-home support to help care for your baby allowing you the time to rest and recover from the birth. Maternity nurses usually provide live-in care to support the family 24 hours a day, for as many days as you need. We can also provide daily maternity nurses, night nannies, travelling maternity nurses, postnatal doulas and holistic sleep support services as required.
Each family is different and will require varying levels of support. We pride ourselves on providing the highest calibre maternity nurses, from around the UK to support our families. Our agency values the safety and security of our families, and uniquely utilises psychometric testing and a screening interview with a psychologist for every placement. Once we have chatted, we will provide you with a shortlist of candidates for interview, and when successful, your chosen maternity nurse will agree on a start date with you around your pending arrival.
What is a post-natal doula?
The role of the post-natal doula is to ensure the mother recovers physically and emotionally from the birth and has time to rest. The doula can support the mother with breastfeeding or bottle-feeding, can provide homecooked, healthy food, and can also support the mother at appointments and inoculations. A postnatal doula can also help with light housekeeping, running errands, and walking the dog. We want you to have all the support you need and deserve at what can be a vulnerable time for new mothers.
The package of support is tailored to your needs which includes the number of hours, days, or number of weeks. A postnatal doula will spend between four and eight hours a day with you, for up to five days a week till your baby is twelve weeks old.
