A lovely American/British family based in Parsons Green, London are looking for a Maternity Nurse to help them during the night time with their first baby girl who is due on the 24th of July 2018. This is a three month booking (nights only).

 

Family Background

A professional couple, they are both hardworking people who travel a lot. They are now living in Parsons Green in London and are getting very excited about their first child, a baby girl due on the 24th of July 2018. The parents are planning on being very hands on with the baby but as this is their first child they will be looking for support for the first 12 weeks during the night time. They live in a large 4 bedroom house and have no pets.

 

Duties

The baby is due on the 24th of July, and the parents would like the maternity nurse to start as soon as the family is home. They will be looking for coverage of the night shifts, and for the maternity nurse to sleep in the room with the baby. They would like the maternity nurse to help with breastfeeding for the mother, help with setting a routine and include a good sleep training routine as the baby grows. During the night you will be assisting the mum with the breastfeeding, bringing the baby girl up to her, allowing her to get her precious sleep in between feeds.  Then completing the winding/nappy changes during the night.  As they are new parents they will be open to suggestions and expert advice from the maternity nurse and to guide them through this new period in their life.

 

Location/Accommodation

The family live in Parsons Green, London and you will be expected to sleep in the nursery with the baby when you are working.

 

Days/Hours

Either 5 or 6 days per week, from Sunday through to Thursday. 10-12 hours per night either starting at 7pm or at 8pm - the family can be flexible with this.

 

Languages

You must speak fluent English in order to communicate easily with the family.

 

Special Skills

You must have previous experience as a maternity nurse.

 

Package Offered

£18 - £20 gross per hour (£180-£240 gross per night shift)

 

Interview/Start date

The baby is due on the 24th of July 2018, so interviews are taking place now with the right candidate being booked ASAP. This would be a three month booking.
