Maternity Support

Being a mother is a full-time job. No-one should be expected to look after kids and babies without any support, especially while juggling a job, household chores, caring duties or other commitments.

This is particularly true with parents of newborn and very young babies. For new mothers it can be pretty overwhelming returning home with a little life to tend to.

Night Support

The most difficult time for many newborns and parents is at night. Difficulty sleeping, feeding at irregular intervals, or dealing with a baby with colic or reflux are particularly challenging, and can leave you exhausted.

A night nanny, (or night Auntie) is a dedicated childcare specialist who can come and assist you and your baby at night-time, when they’re most needed. Night nannies can take over your baby’s night care for you: putting them down to bed, sorting out feeding, and changing nappies.

Or they can simple come and give you expert advise on feeding techniques, sleeping patterns and any other baby care issues to give you time to rest.

Frequently Asked Questions

Being a new parent can be challenging. A maternity support worker is a dedicated childcare specialist who provides temporary help for parents who are finding it difficult to cope, have a busy household, or need extra support in the first few weeks or months after a baby’s birth.

A good maternity support worker has previous experience in childcare, a kind, caring and patient attitude, great people skills, and the ability to work well under pressure.

As a maternity support worker you will work with babies offering support to parents and complementing the service offered by registered midwives. It is now possible to do a degree-level apprenticeship as a maternity support worker which will give you on the job training and a recognised qualification – check the Royal College of Midwives’ website for further information.
