Maternity Mum Agency was established by Cheryl Foster to create a professional and personal maternity nurse service providing specialist postnatal care for new parents, living in the UK and overseas.

Over my 20 years career as a midwife and maternity nurse, I have had the privilege of caring for hundreds of mums and their newborn babies. I love nurturing relationships between parents, families and their babies.

As a mum myself I am aware of the importance for mums to rest and recuperate following childbirth and in the early postnatal period and the many benefits of having an experienced, knowledgeable maternity nurse to offer guidance and support.

I am organised, resourceful and dedicated to helping families find their perfect maternity nurse.

One of the most important values which Cheryl and her team adhere to, is that each client is unique and no situation is the same. Parents have different styles of parenting and different routines and schedules they set, which is why the maternity nurses need to be able to adapt to all of this.

There are also health issues that need to be taken into consideration, such as postnatal depression. In order to do this, Maternity Mum take into the account the needs of the client and carefully matches them with a maternity nurse with the right qualifications and experience. It is key that they provide the best possible service to every single one of their clients. Client satisfaction is something that is massively important to Maternity Mum, and the endless positive testimonials both on their website and on Facebook are proof that the service they offer is an excellent one.
