About Me

I am a highly experienced, qualified and fully insured Maternity Nurse / Night Nurse from Hampshire with over 35 years experience in the childcare industry.

My passion is working with newborns.
I am a hardworking, caring and an efficient practitioner who is enthusiastic, as well as someone who uses initiative and has the ability to adapt to their surroundings.
I have found that it is important to develop strong bonds with the parents to assist the family as a whole, communicating effectively and providing daily routine diaries.

My main roles are giving breast feeding support if required, setting workable routines that suit the family, sterilising and bottle preparation if necessary, bathing, nappy changing, winding and settling after feeds day and night.
Sole charge of night feeds if bottle or expressed feeding.
I also provide the client with details of what to expect going forward with the development of their baby ( babies).

I am available for FaceTime/Skype consultations.

All bookings are under contract with a deposit taken upon confirming required dates.
Ad hoc and emergency bookings are also available depending on my diary.
I have excellent references and full CV with career history available to share.

I look forward to hearing from you
Kind regards

All counties covered.

Dawn joined us at short notice to help with our 5 week old son who was suffering from reflux and cmpa. She was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of great advice with many things to help us establish a better routine both during the daytime and at night. Dawn worked overnight for us, 6 days a week for approximately 4 weeks and was thoroughly missed when she had to go to her next assignment. We would hire her again in a heartbeat if the need arises.
