Contracts, Rates and Fees
We recommend that all our Maternity Nurses work with a contract signed by both parties, to avoid any doubt, stipulating the agreed booking and arrangements therein. We can provide a standard contract template to our registered Maternity Nurses, however, you may wish to amend this document according to your own views.
Experienced Maternity Nurses
They range from ladies with 5-10 years' solid Maternity Nurse work experience to those with 20-30 years' experience with a Certificate from either the MNT College or from BabyEm. They will be placed with all types of clients ranging from first time nervous mothers to those expecting multiples. They have come from a solid nanny or nursing/midwifery background before deciding to specialise in maternity nursing.
They will confidently walk into any booking and be able to recognise and know how to care for a mother with post-natal depression, a baby with tongue tie or colic, and will discreetly fit into any household. Having said that, many bookings do not present difficult issues such as these and will go very smoothly.

Junior Maternity Nurses
They range from those who have 3+ years' new baby experience working as a Nanny or Maternity Nanny. They have subsequently completed the Maternity Nurse Training (MNT) or BabyEm Level 3 & 4 Training and been placed with a minimum of 3 clients to pass their Certificate. They will hold references to support their placements. Our Junior Maternity Nurses will work with second and third time mothers who need an 'extra pair of experienced hands' and we will always take up references at the end of each booking to monitor on-going suitability.
