About Me

Congratulations on your pregnancy/ arrival of your new baby.

Hello my name is Cheryl, I am a Maternity Nurse with over 15 years midwifery experience of working with mums and their newborn babies. I am a compassionate, non judgemental, dedicated person, who loves working with new mums and their babies. My philosophy is “Happy mum equals happy baby”.

My Experience

Over my 15 years midwifery career, 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. I am passionate about delivering holistic care and providing evidence based research. Empowering mums to make informed choices and fully supporting their parenting decisions. My experience acting as an advocate for mothers has promoted mums own health and well being. As a mum myself, I am aware of the importance for mums to rest and recuperate following child birth and in the early postnatal period.
I thoroughly enjoy living and working witohin the household. Allowing me to build relationships and provide professional one to one maternity care, to deliver holistic maternity care to mums and their newborn babies.
My children are independent young adults, allowing me flexibility to pursue my career as a Maternity Nurse, working nationwide and overseas.
I have an enhanced DBS, a current paediatric first aid certificate, full driving licence, fully insured, along with excellent references.
If I can be of any help please feel free to contact me for an informal chat.

Cheryl joined us when our twin girls were 4 weeks old and was with us for 6 weeks in total. Cheryl helped with all aspects of looking after the girls, helping with feeds, nappy changes and bath time during the day. At night, Cheryl had sole charge of the girls.

Cheryl allowed me to rest and continue to recover from labour and express milk for the girls. Cheryl also allowed my husband and I to spend time with our 3 year old daughter, maintaining bed time routines etc.

Cheryl helped with taking the girls for hip scans at the hospital and also for their first injections. She was always a calm and reassuring presence both during these appointments and at home. Cheryl was also very flexible and willing to provide additional days' support when requested.

Cheryl has quickly become a member of our family and we're all going to miss her!

We highly recommend Cheryl and were very fortunate and grateful to have her help.

I start my Maternity leave from October 8th 2016.

Cheryl has been my son and daughter nanny for over one years working between one and four evenings per week.

Myself and partner had just sold two properties in London and Sheffield to buy a larger family home in Rotherham. A new location with no family or friends close by for support(mine living in Middlesbrough and my partners living a London).

Until this time we had never used a nanny and to be honest never understood how a parent could leave there children with a stranger(silly me). We had always had my mum to help until she had returned to live in our home town due to her bad health. And having no choice in looking after her grandchildren because of her illness.

With my partner working as a firefighter in central London four days per week and security when he was home I was a 100% alone with childcare I started looking into a nanny service on childcare.co.uk

I worked as a assistant nightclub manager in Leeds one upto four evening per week from 7pm till 6am.

Cheryl replied to my avert on childcare.co.uk and we arranged a interview for the next day. I could not sleep the night before and the morning of the interview actually vomited because of the worry of having a stranger looking after my children.

All I can say is from the second Cheryl walked through the door my fears went and I knew everything would be fine. All through the interview Cheryl sat on the floor playing with my son for nearly two hours whilst we chatted like we had known each other for years.

Cheryl started working the same evening.

I can honestly say the combination of being professional and being part of the family Cheryl has done perfectly.

* Punctuality is perfect and always on time. Mainly 10-15mins early and has NEVER been late.
*NEVER cancelled a shift, is extremely reliable and also very flexible. And worked around myself and children being ill etc when I've had to cancel last minute and change my shifts. Which Cheryl has never complained and supported me.
* ALWAYS arrives with a big smile and I've honestly never heard her complain about anything. She spends her time playing singing and reading and talking with the children.
*Works and supports my parenting, my 19month old still wakes during the night and sleeps late and wakes early. So not a easy evening of bed at 7pm till 6am. And a 13year old that loves having friends over at the weekends so more responsibilities. Also Cheryl has looked after other family members whilst here ranging from the age of 6.

I can and will HIGHLY recommended Cheryl as a nanny. She has been more than fantastic and more than a 100% support.
Myself and family will be very upset when she leaves and asked to stay in touch. Cheryl became part of my family and very close to our hearts.

Having Cheryl provided us with fantastic childcare and support and allowed me to return back to work stress free.

She will be there full of cuddles smiles and fun for your children and for my children became there auntie Cheryl.
