Mothercraft Nurses can attend for a one-off visit or an extended period.


Night Nannies – when you need a good night’s sleep

A Night Nanny will arrive in the evening then remain awake and on duty until morning. They will bath and settle your baby –  feed and change nappies as required.  Breast feeding mothers can either express or the Night Nanny will bring to you.

A Night Nanny is usually on duty for 8-10 hours.


Babysitting for Babies

Our Mothercraft Nurses will babysit for babies under 6 months.  You can confidently leave your baby for an evening’s outing or social event safe in the knowledge that they will be well cared for by experts.  Minimum 4 hours.
