About Me

Dear family and little one/s!

I am a 36 year old nanny/maternity nurse with 16 years experience, working with children from ages 0-10 years old. I have an up to date DBS/first aid and I am also a qualified maternity nurse with a full driving licence.

I am a confident maternity nurse who is caring, empathetic and encourages a healthy eating and sleeping routine for new borns and will support mothers in breastfeeding as well as with mixed/bottle feeds. 90% of my new borns sleep throughout the night from 8-10 weeks old if families are happy to take on the advice I bring with me.

I am looking for for part time maternity nursing roles up to 3/4 nights a week and am flexible for ad hoc evening babysitting’s during the week or weekends.

I like cooking, reading, music and travelling and socialising. I am happy, motivated, responsible and very caring and most importantly love children!

Please do not hesitate to contact me by phone or via email to talk further if you are interested in taking me on as your nanny/maternity nurse/babysitter.

(Please book well in advance as I am in high demand.)

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thank you
Kind Regards
Norma Navarro
