Absolute Childcare is a professional but very friendly agency! Our role is to help you secure a vacancy where you are happy!
Absolute Childcare manage every aspect of the recruitment process on your behalf and specifically to your unique requirements.
Their role is to ensure a calm transition to parenthood by teaching and supporting parents on all aspects of baby care with specialist knowledge on feeding issues and sleep patterns. A maternity nurse supports the family by aiding the recovery of the mother after birth with the ultimate goal of leaving the parents confident to go it alone by the end of the booking. They are usually a qualified and very experienced Nanny who has specialised in the care of new-born babies. They are typically on duty 24 hours a day, 6 days per week. They are not working in any medical capacity but are suitably experienced and/or qualified to aid and advise new parents with their new-born. They are also there to support mum in a general capacity, for example supporting Mum with Breast feeding/making up bottles, making sure mum is resting, eating and is mentally and physically well following the birth.
Most Maternity Nurses will live in and either share a room with the baby or have their own room, whichever suits your circumstances better. This will involve either giving a bottle feed or passing the baby to the mother for a breast feed and then winding, changing and settling the baby.
In addition to the babies care, they will be responsible for all Nursery duties relating to the baby, laundry, ironing, changing bedding, keeping the nursery clean and tidy, bottle sterilising and preparation.
Most Maternity Nurses will care for the baby/babies only and won’t take responsibility for other siblings within the home.
As Maternity Nurses are on duty 24/6 they will generally rest when the baby sleeps. They will also take the baby out for walks and engage the baby in gentle sensory activities.
Night nannies may live in but usually live out and will work for up to six nights per week. Most will work from between 8 to 10 p.m. until 7 to 8 a.m. and be off duty during the day. They specialise in getting particularly wakeful babies to sleep through the night.
Daily maternity nurses generally live out and usually work between 10 and 12 hours per day up to six days per week. Daily maternity nurses are ideal for families who have limited space or who prefer not to have someone living in.
Maternity Nurse Salaries vary depending on experience, qualifications, their demand and the number of babies they are caring for. They are self-employed, so they take responsibility for their own tax and NI contributions. The figures quoted will be gross. Maternity Nurse on our books and available for the dates you require.
|Gross pay per day|
|Single Baby||£140 – £160 +|
|Twins||£180 – £210 +|
|Triplets||Prices on request|
