About Me

Dear Parents,
My name’s Izabela and I'm in process of transitioning to maternity nursing after spending years working as a nanny. I am a warm, articulate and responsible person who copes very well in different situations. I have good intuition which helps me respond well to other people’s needs. I am an emotionally mature, confident maternity nurse who possesses high levels of energy and the ability to develop close relationships with babies and their families.
I have a strong interest in babies and this is what my true passion is. I have worked with families who had new-borns as well as other siblings. I have helped older children to bond with the babies and I have been successful in teaching new parents how to care for babies. I have been lucky to work with twins and also traveled overseas with them. I like to make sure that parents enjoy these very special first few months after welcoming a new baby to this world and to really bond with them.

My Experience

I worked as a nanny for almost 10 years and qualified as a maternity nurse in February 2015. I worked in various positions in the UK as well as in the United States and Poland. As a maternity nurse, I believe that following a baby’s natural rhythm to establish a gentle, flexible routine can have great benefits for the baby and for the whole family. I like to take a flexible approach that is suitable for each family’s individual needs and I am happy to discuss possible approaches. I have experience with working with breast fed and bottle fed babies and will provide support and encouragement to mothers with their choice of feeding.
I am very committed to my career and genuinely enjoy every aspect of my job. I have a strong belief in making new parents’ lives less stressful and easier during this precious time

Izabela was with us for 2 weeks, 4 days a week, for 24 hours from when my second child was 2 weeks old. She was fantastic; not only did she look after my baby's needs, she also helped out with my 3 year old. She is a lovely person to have around the house, very easy to be around. I only wish we could have had her for longer. I would recommend Izabela to anyone with newborns, babies or toddlers.

Izabela came to support our family during baby Leo's first 3 months. She was a gift to have - not only is Izabela incredibly calm and reassuring (I was a particularly anxious first-time-mum), but she immediately helped me to feel like I had a friend by my side who encouraged me to trust my own instinct while providing care for the baby.
Izabela entered our home with warmth, kindness and a genuine passion for babies. She very quickly developed a bond with little Leo and I trusted her immediately having experienced her lovely nature.
She is confident, reliable and highly organised and would be an asset to any family.

Izabela was recommended to me as a maternity nurse by a friend who had baby twin boys, and spoke extremely highly of her. (very reassuring experience there!)
As a new mum and after a traumatic birth and long recovery, it was a huge stroke of luck to have Izabela. Not only was she super experienced and full of knowledge that I was totally lacking despite plenty books around, but most importantly her care, empathy, honest, gentle nature and strength was a huge source of comfort and strength for me. Izabela also does maternity nursing and some nanny work for friends of mine and everyone is so grateful and so happy with her services.
I really would recommend her to any mum but especially new mums. Having a baby isn't easy and sure family can sometimes help out, but having a maternity nurse by your side is the biggest blessing you could give yourself and your baby in these first few months or year.
Thank you Izabela!!
