Advantages Of A 24 Hour Live in Maternity Nurse
There are many benefits to hiring a 24 hour live in maternity nurse. The maternity nurses are on call 24 hours for guidance and support during the day as well as during the night. Giving reassurance to many new parents especially first time parents, parents of twins/ multiples, single parents, same sex parents or any new parents that may need guidance and support from a postnatal professional. Some new parents may not have extended family living local and often partners may work long hours. Being a new parent without a strong support network in place can be challenging. Having an experienced newborn professional living in your home during those early days can be very helpful and reassuring. Some parents may have additional health needs and need extra support from our postnatal care givers.

Our maternity nurses live throughout the UK from London to Yorkshire or Scotland. One of the big advantages of booking a live in 24 hour maternity nurse, is that you will have a wider selection of maternity nurses to choose from. You will not be restricted to having to choose a maternity nurse who lives local to you. So it doesn't matter if you live in central London, the countryside or overseas. Maternity Mum Agency will be able to find you a 24 hour live in maternity nurse for your requirements.

Maternity Nurse General Information
Our 24 hour, live in maternity nurses take a break during the day, usually 3 to 4 hours to either catch up on some sleep, take a walk or exercise to recharge their batteries. Please discuss the break times with your potential maternity nurse at the interview stage.

Live in, 24 hour maternity nurses can work a maximum of 6 shifts per week. However parents often request 24/5 per week. Allowing for quality family time at the weekend. Again the interview stage would be an ideal opportunity to discuss days off and the option of the maternity nurse staying in the family home or travelling back home on their days off.

Parents can book a 24 hour live in maternity nurse for just a few days following the birth of the baby, to help them adjust to life at home with their newborn. Or for as long as a 6 month contract. Typically parents often choose to book a maternity nurse for 6 to 12 weeks.

Usually the 24 hour maternity nurse will share a bedroom with the baby at night so parents can catch up on some much needed sleep. If mum is breastfeeding the maternity nurse can bring the baby to mum to feed. When the baby has finished feeding the maternity nurse will continue with the baby cares, nappy changing, winding and settling. Allowing Mum time to rest.

Although the 24 hour maternity nurse will be sharing a bedroom with the baby during the night. The clients would need to make provisions for the maternity nurse to have access to a bedroom during their break.

All of our Maternity Nurses are self employed and therefore are responsible for setting their own rates per 24 hours . All the rates quoted are gross and the maternity nurses are responsible for their own tax and insurance.


24 Hour Live in Maternity Nurse Rates
During the initial enquiry with Maternity Mum Agency we will discuss more in detail the 24 hour, live in maternity nurses rates, deposits and the terms of conditions to book a maternity nurse. The parent/ client will be responsible to sign a contract directly with the maternity nurse and to pay a non refundable deposit directly to the maternity nurse to secure the booking.

During the interview process is an ideal opportunity to discuss the individual maternity nurse's contract and amount of deposit that is required. It can differ from one weeks deposit for the whole contract to a one week's deposit for every 4 to 6 weeks booked, depending on the individual maternity nurse.

Again the individual rates of the 24 hour maternity nurses can differ depending on the maternity nurse's experience, skills and education. The staff at Maternity Mum Agency will advise you of the maternity nurses rates when we send potential maternity nurse profiles to parents/clients.

But to give you an idea of rates, a typical experienced maternity nurse fees are usually from £250 gross per 24 hours, for a single baby.

However we have new starter maternity nurses and those with less experience, whose rates can start from £200 gross per 24 hours, for a single baby.

Highly skilled and experienced maternity nurses who specialise in trouble shooting, sleep training, breastfeeding issues or those who have undertaken additional training and have had many many years of experience, their rates can be from £300 gross per 24 hours, for a single baby.


Please contact us to discuss the rates for live in 24 hour maternity nurses for twins and triplets.

The live in, 24 hour maternity nurse rates for services can differ vastly depending on the qualifications and experience of the live in maternity nurse.
