Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Maternity Nurse ?

A Maternity Nurse is someone who can come into your home after your baby arrives, from one afternoon, overnight or through the day to offer support and encouragement. By employing a Maternity Nurse, new parents will find more time to enjoy the experience with their new baby, feeling more confident and well equipped to face the daily challenges, including promoting positive reactions from other siblings.

Why should I use a qualified Maternity Nurse 

and not a Nanny?

A Maternity Nurse is a non-medical professional who has expertise in several areas, including baby sleep, breastfeeding and early childhood development. Most of our Maternity Nurses are qualified nurses and trained by Mathilde, qualified Paediatric nurse and Maternity nurse Instructor. 

Knowing that your aftercare provider can pass on this invaluable medical background and professional experience to you will help you boldly transition into parenthood. Nannies are excellent helpers, often with a wealth of experience, but they do not usually have the medical knowledge or experience of a maternity nurse.

When do I need a maternity nurse ?

You can get in touch at any point you feel comfortable throughout your pregnancy.


Some people like to get in touch early on and others leave it until the final few weeks. A no-obligation, informal chat is highly recommended before your baby arrives.


Mathilde offers pre-birth visits to help prepare expectant parents for the baby’s arrival, checking the environment (baby items / health and safety) and cover any potential concerns with in-depth assessments and discussions.


Some families get in touch after their baby is born and that’s OK, too. The right time for you is the right time for me.


We do take bookings quite far in advance though, so if you’re thinking about getting in touch, please do so.
