About Me

Hi! Thank you for visiting my profile!

I am a 22 year old midwifery student with previous experiences as a nanny, personal assistant, maternity assistant and babysitter.

I am able to look after children from birth to ages 13. I am experienced in breastfeeding support, looking after children with special educational needs, preparing healthy meals, first aid trained, CPR trained etc.
I understand the stresses of working and finding a childcare provider you can really trust, hence why I offer all parents who are interested in me, an introductory meet to see how your child responds to me.

My Experience

As stated above, I am currently a student midwife working alongside registered midwives, obstetricians etc. I have experience in supporting women with multiple babies, pre term babies, babies who have been in neonatal/special care units etc. I am able to help with feeding (breast or bottle or mixed), nappy changes, emotional support when needed, meals for the baby if of weaning age, stimulation and playing with the baby (singing, reading, tummy time)

I am also very empathetic and understand how intense the shift from pregnancy to parenthood can be, so am more than happy to go at the parents pace in regards to assisting them with how to care for their baby, what cues to look out for and what they mean, how to best handle the new changes etc.

For older children, I am able to support them with their education where possible with reading and counting exercises, stimulating games (I spy, what shape is it etc) and songs, outdoor activities and adventures (when possible). I am also able to drop and pick up children from nurseries.

I am available for babysitting when parents want to go out etc if given at least two days notice in advance.

Paediatric First Aid (Updated Annually)
Child Development
Health and safety in the early years

Savannah is a great nanny. She put my 3 month son at ease and was tending to his needs very well. She is a kind ,calm, trustworthy person which makes her great at her job. She is very knowledgeable - you can tell she has experience in working with babies in a healthcare setting. She is also a mother herself so she understands the pressures of being a first time mum. She is aspiring to be a midwife and I have no doubt she will be an amazing midwife in the future!

Thank you so much, I really appreciate your words and the opportunity to work with your lovely family 🤍

I recently contacted Savannah in relation to some evening babysitting I required, she was very quick to respond and professional with her approach. She suggested meeting my daughter prior to babysitting to get to know her so we all felt comfortable ahead of the role. She arrived on time and made an amazing impression on my daughter to the point she cried when she left, she really took her time and get down and interact, they bonded straight away. She is a natural with handling young children.
Savannah is very reliable and trustworthy, she makes you feel at ease from the start (I was very nervous to begin with). Im very grateful to have found her and I wouldn’t hesitate to contact her for future work!
