COVID 19 ** - I am still continuing to work with clients through the current situation. I isolate at home between bookings leaving a minimum of two weeks between roles, driving myself to and from each home. I am currently not using public transport to get to and from my clients homes.
Currently I have availability from September 2021
Hello, I’m Maxine, a highly experienced and mature childcare professional with a sensitive, compassionate and conscientious approach to caring for babies.
Favouring a gentle, respectful and responsive approach to new-born care, I have proven success of working in partnership with parents to establish successful routines. Highly considerate of the parents preferred style, I offer excellent support, implementing feeding and sleeping routines that are gentle and consistent without compromising baby's needs. With my knowledge and understanding of supporting breast, bottle and combination feeding through practical and personal experience, I am able to help and offer guidance as required. With my knowledge and experience I am able to support each stage of a baby’s physical, cognitive and emotional development.
My approach is inclusive of the whole family unit and my aim is to offer support and contribute towards a harmonious home environment.
"Maxine was amazing and we would highly recommend her. She was incredibly professional, tidy, punctual, yet also very warm and loving. She took such wonderful care of our baby"
“We are incredibly grateful to have had Maxine with us as part of our growing family. She fit right in from the beginning and made a world of difference to our experience of having a new-born with a toddler. We would welcome Maxine back without hesitation for any future babies”
"It has been wonderful to have Maxine help us with our little one over this period, she is a very proactive, energetic and caring maternity nurse. She has a strong, positive and can-do attitude and is very knowledgeable and supportive. We couldn’t sing her praises highly enough”
"Responsible, punctual, very supportive and easy to live with. Maxine took her job very seriously providing full care of the baby, she was great with the baby as well as the whole family. My two boys, 5 and 6 years old absolutely loved her and were sad when she left"
"Maxine is a very warm, kind and extremely knowledgeable person. She supported first time Mom to adapt and grow confidence in her new role meaning that our first weeks at home were calm and enjoyable. We will be forever grateful to Maxine for her time with us, any family she joins should consider themselves very lucky"
“I would totally recommend Maxine as a maternity nurse. She was trustworthy, capable and experienced in her role, definitely an asset for the family”.
“As first-time parents my husband and I were inexperienced and nervous, Maxine’s gentle, friendly and hands-on approach at no point made either of us feel silly or inadequate parents. She was incredibly supportive of me, a fairly hormonal mum frantically trying to breastfeed, she ensured I was well rested and taught me a huge amount about breastfeeding. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Maxine to anyone looking for a very professional, very knowledgeable maternity nurse”.
“Kind, gentle and non-judgemental approach. Displaying depth of knowledge and experience but with a light touch. Always calm and focussed on baby but respectful of the mother’s position, building mother and fathers confidence in moving forward. Maxine tactfully managed the wider family input of a multi-generational household under Covid19 lockdown conditions – fitting in unobtrusively and discreetly”.
