I'm a holistic maternity nurse (OCN Level 4) and seeking part time hours between Putney and Richmond areas only, from ASAP, eg over the weekend for 1x24 or 2x24 between Friday evening to Sunday evening, or part time anytime eg 3x24 hours/week, or day or nights only. I'll do night/day nursing on an hourly rate, only with COVID aware and cautious parents who are preferably working from home or have been isolating. I am only seeking ONE family at a time and not taking advance booking - only ASAP LOCAL bookings. I am passionate about supporting parents, working in a very unique way and especially interested in providing baby-centred, pro - attachment and bonding and responsive care at this most important and vulnerable time in the development of a young person. I am very sensitive to the fact that there is always a careful balance to be found between meeting both the babies' and the family's needs and every situation is unique to any other. I am happy to take care of the baby, including whilst you catch up on sleep, but also just to be an extra pair of hands or to simply advise and support and will also help out with simple meal prep, empty the dishwasher or take care of the older sibling and during interview we can decide which type of support would best suit your families' needs.
I have experience with babies of all ages, days and nights and am also qualified as a holistic Pikler inspired practitioner with babies from age 0. I just recently worked in a stately home in a mostly sole-charge role with a 3 week old!

I am very happy to write a reference for Alison. Alison has been looking after my son since the beginning of June for a couple of days a week. She started when my son was 12 weeks old and had sole charge of him for 2 days a week with the occasional evening babysitting as well. Alison also looked after my son overnight twice in July, once for a period of 26 hours where she was completely responsible for him and for keeping our routine on track. We were very happy with the job she did on these occasions and it made all the difference to our trips that we could trust her completely.
Alison's duties include feeding, changing, bathing and playing with my son. She also did the bedtime routine and got him to sleep on the nights that she babysat.
Alison is a very calm and responsible person and she has done a great job looking after my son and giving me feedback about him afterwards so I know how much he ate, when he slept and anything else noteworthy. I would recommend Alison highly, she clearly has a lot of experience with children, especially babies, and that is reassuring for a mother who needs to leave such a young one in someone else's care.
