About Me

I was a nanny for over 23 years before moving on to Maternity Nursing.
I trained as a Maternity Nurse with MNT in 2009 and also did Baby Sleep Training with them. In addition to this, I did Baby Care for Nannies, just to update my skills.
I love my career and feel passionate about helping parents with their little ones.
I have worked with some wonderful families over the years, and travelled, spending lengthy stretches in other countries, gaining wonderful experience along the way.

My Experience

I have experience with babies from newborn. I love to help parents establish a good and structured routine, which results in a happier and more contented baby. My aim is to make sure that your baby gets the correct milk intake between 7am and 11pm, by scheduling their feeds and sleep correctly in a 24 hour period. Once your baby has the dream feed and drops the middle of the night feeds, he should sleep peacefully until 6/7am, eventually dropping the dream feed.
For the first few weeks your baby will need feeding every 2-21/2 hours, and then we can slowly start stretching the feeding times once he/she has regained their birth weight. This is all done gradually.

I feel passionate about my work, helping new Mum's, and getting baby onto the right routine, resulting in less anxiety and sleepless nights for Mum and Dad. I do believe in encouraging a baby to self settle and to encourage healthy sleep habits, but I respect the wishes of every parent, and am flexible in my approach.

I am meticulous in my work, organised, discreet, punctual, trustworthy, respectful and easy to be around.

I am also available to help settle Mum and baby in after arriving home from hospital. I will support and guide mum in all aspects of baby care, and guide on a feeding and sleeping routine.

My one week old daughter melted in Maria's arms when she first came to work with us in January. She has a wonderful way with babies, an enormous amount of experience from routine, soothing, feeding/weaning to the best baby products and above all she gave me some much needed confidence once back from hospital with my daughter. She is a lovely person and could not recommend her enough as a maternity nurse.

Our son was very calm and relaxed in Maria's arms. She is a lovely lady and knowledgeable nanny. Maria took care of our reflux baby through the night so we could get some much needed rest. I highly recommend her.
