A maternity nurse (can also be known as a maternity nanny) is a trained or experienced nanny or midwife specialising in caring for new born babies.
They can take charge of a new baby and guide and advise the mother on feeding patterns, sleeping routines and other aspects of new born care.
Employment periods can vary from a few days to a few months, depending on the family’s needs and they can work a variety of different options, including: 12 or 24 hour day or night care, working up to six days per week.
A maternity nurse is self-employed and sets their own rate of pay. When a firm booking is made the client contractually commits to employ the maternity nurse for an agreed period of time.
If a booking is cancelled or delayed, usually the maternity nurse would ask for 50% of the agreed pay for the period affected.
