Emergency Maternity Nurse

Emergency / Last Minute Maternity Nurse

Situations sometimes occur outside of our control, emergency C sections, family emergencies, post natal depression, sleep deprivation, being let down by another childcare provider or simply feeling you need some immediate support after the birth of your baby can lead to a family requiring an emergency or last minute maternity nurse at a moment’s notice. Whatever the reason, First Class Nannies and Helpers will always endeavour to find you a suitable maternity nurse who can step into the breach to support you at short notice.

Emergency maternity nurses offer the same amount of help and advice as any other maternity nurse (see 24 hour maternity nurses for full job description). Supporting the family they help to settle in the new baby or babies and are responsible for all usual maternity nurse duties including feeding or assisting with feeding, bathing, changing and settling the baby / babies, as well as taking care of the baby / babies laundry and their nursery.

A maternity nurse is not usually responsible for any cleaning or duties unrelated to the baby / babies. They do not take responsibility for any older siblings, however sometimes maternity nurses may agree to small amounts of additional childcare. If this is a potential requirement it should be discussed and agreed prior to commencement of the post.

Families with emergency circumstances that also require care for older siblings and/or housekeeping duties may prefer to consider a temporary nanny who will undertake the care of all your children or a temporary nanny housekeeper who will care for all your children and time and circumstance permitting also undertake household duties. If you simply need an extra pair of hands a temporary nanny or recently qualified maternity nurse can be a more cost effective option.  Many nannies on our books have newborn experience and are equally capable with babies and older siblings, however they will usually have less newborn experience than a maternity nurse.
