Hello my name is Yolanda and I have been a career nanny for the past 12 years. For the past 4.5 years I have been working exclusively as a maternity nurse.
As a nanny I have had the pleasure of working with a variety of ages. I have worked internationally in London, Auckland and Sydney, as well as having travelled abroad with families. In February 2016 I underwent further training to become a postnatal carer as this has always been an age I love working with. Since this transition I have been predominantly specialising in working with premature babies as well as first time mothers. I am caring and supportive as well as organised, patient and reliable, while always maintaining a high level of professionalism.
When working with new mothers I encourage a gentle feeding and sleeping routine that works for both the mother and her baby, and look to devise a long term plan that will continue to meet the needs of the family long after I am gone.
I am caring, organised, patient and reliable. I have experience caring for a wide range of ages including newborns up to the age of 10 years old.
As a maternity nurse I am supportive and flexible in my approach and enjoy providing new parents with the skills, knowledge and confidence to enjoy the first few months with their new baby. l offer encouragement and support to breastfeeding mothers, but if you choose to formula feed I can fully support and assist with this as well. I can advise on a age appropriate sleeping and feeding routine which allows you to receive as much rest as possible in these busy first few months.
I have had the pleasure of working with families who have multiples including premature newborn twins. I also have experience in caring for newborns/babies with reflux, early allergies as well as tongue tied babies.
I have many glowing references and have maintained lasting relationships with many of the families I have worked for. My other interests are exercising, traveling, snowboarding and yoga. I live a healthy lifestyle and enjoy cooking and eating out at cafes and restaurants with my husband and friends. I am currently seeking maternity nurse and night nanny work.
I also provide consulting services for families with babies who are seeking more troubleshooting solutions and am currently training further in holistic sleep coaching.
