Hello parents to be,
My name is Becki, I am an experienced, qualified former nanny with a solid career history in childcare who currently works as a Maternity Nurse. I am available for part time, adhoc days and night positions or 24hr shifts from March- Mid May, then from late June onwards
A little information about me, I have a great passion for cooking and love creating healthy and nutritious meals. I am very creative and enjoy many arts and crafts. I also love to travel and enjoy spending time in the great outdoors. I am a devoted, caring and very organised. I have a very calm approach and cope well under pressure thriving when faced with new challenges.
My experience with children started around the age of 13 when I began running a small creche at my local church, I also helped out with Sunday school and youth clubs. My interest in caring for children lead me to work in the summer holidays at a Private Day Nursery. I completed work experience in a school nursery which lead me to an interest of becoming a qualified child carer. During collage, I gained experience in a variety of settings including primary school settings, a school nursery, time at home with a new mum and her baby, special needs school and the private nursery. Since qualifying I have worked in various settings I have experience working in private day nurseries, school nurseries, working as a kid’s world and creche representative overseas, and also 5 years working in various nanny roles and 5 years as a Maternity Nurse. These workplace's have given me experience with children aged between new born and 13 years.
My aim as a Maternity Nurse is to fully support the parents after the birth. I hope by the time I leave your home I have managed to encourage, support and nurture you as new parents to feel happy and confident enough to look after your baby without any help. I am of course happy to discuss any worries you may have after I have left too.

Rebecca spent 4 weeks with us from the 24th of November 2019 until the 22nd of December as a live-out nanny looking after my 3 month old daughter, Abike. During her stay with us, Becki was a wonderful asset to our family. She is kind, helpful and very patient and I would be more than happy to recommend her for any nanny role.
Her primary task was to take care of my then 3 month old between 7am -12 noon Monday to Thursday in order to give me enough time to catch my breath and take an hour nap. Becky was very patient with my baby who was a very fussy newborn as she had reflux. Becky would bring her to me to feed and then burp her and hold her upright for 30mins before settling her down again. While the baby slept Becki was also incredibly helpful around the house, she did the baby’s laundry and ironing, made me some lactation smoothies and even tidied my kitchen! I also asked her to help with some research online (for childcare and baby’s clothes). She was very quick and thorough with this work.
While my husband was out of town, Becki spent a few nights with us and was an excellent night nanny. She was always reachable via text message and burped and settled the baby after each feed so that I could spend the entire night in bed and most of it asleep.
Although I was at home on most days I was 100% comfortable leaving Becki at home alone with the baby and did so on a few occasions. I had no doubts as to her trustworthiness and primary concern for Abike’s welfare.
Please feel free to contact us if we can provide any further information.
