About Me

I’m a recognised doula and very experienced maternity nurse as well as a level 3 qualified nanny. If you are looking for a warm, nurturing nanny, look no further!

I consider myself to be a caring and confident person who is sympathetic to the needs of babies, children and their family. I am hard working, trustworthy and conscientious in my work. Having worked with various age groups and at different levels of caring, I am able to provide families with a happy, secure environment for the benefit of all.

I love animals too so am more than happy to help with their care if needed

I am triple vaccinated for covid

My Experience

I have almost 30 years childcare experience, mostly as a sole charge maternity nurse/doula and nanny. I also have up to date (12 hour) paediatric first aid training, child protection training, a CRB/DBS and of course fantastic refs. I am a non smoker and live in St Albans, Herts.

My Availability

I’m looking for a live out position of approximately 30 hours a week. I’m looking for a lovely family that will allow my daughter (8) to come too when she isn’t at school

I can be very flexible with days and hours. Finding the right family is the most most important aspect

Unfortunately I’m not available for wrap around care (before and after school only). I’m looking ideally for 3-4 full days

From the very first meeting with Paula and Gary, i felt not only comfortable with them but also totally confident that our son (who is 6 months old) would be looked after and cared for to the highest standard. They are not only very caring towards our son and their other charges in a lovely homely environment, but very willing to work with us as parents to make sure that our son settles in well and is happy and healthy.
