This busy family is expecting their second child by C-section on the 21st December. They’re looking for two maternity nurses to work in a team providing 24/7 coverage throughout; the split of the cover can be determined by the maternity nurses and could be 1 week on 1 week off or 24/6 and 24/1 etc.
You will need to work in tandem with the other maternity nurse, helping to establish a routine for the baby, and Mum plans to breastfeed. You should be a strong team player and a good communicator. Mum likes to be as hands-on as possible, but does have her own company so needs to be able to plan meetings around the baby’s schedule. She would like maternity nurses who are able to offer advice and support whilst leaving her to make the ultimate decision.
You will have a room and bathroom in the house, baby’s Moses basket will be in your room at night, but baby will have their own nursery in the house too. You will also be responsible for standard nursery duties.
This is a semi-formal household; both Mum and Dad like to be hands-on when they can and like to have quiet family time wherever possible. You should therefore be able to judge the situation and give the family their space when needed. Strong teamwork and communication will be key in this role. The ideal candidates will be nurturing, patient, and will advise without being forceful.
Maternity Nurse x 2
