Maternity nurses are well known in the UK and US and other parts of Europe, but over the last few months we have definitely seen a rise in the demand for maternity nurses in Switzerland – so what is a maternity nurse?
A Maternity Nurse helps the Mother from the time she leaves the hospital until she and her baby are settled into a routine at home; providing night time care of baby, assisting with breastfeeding / bottle feeding, bathing and many other aspects of newborn care.
Having the knowledge, guidance along with the hands on support the Maternity Nurse will provide, helps create confidence with new parents and with their newest addition as well as helping parents to establish solid routines. And of course providing much needed rest to the parents – making everyone happier and able to cope with daily life better. I remember as a two time mom to newborns how this service would have been very welcome had I known about it..
A Maternity Nurse will usually be on call 24 hours a day for 5 or 6 days a week however this can be negotiated. Most of our maternity nurses only offer live-in care as they are based internationally (we have a handful locally)
