I am a qualified Maternity Nurse that has achieved a highly accredited London School of Childcare Studies Maternity Nursing Course – OCN Level 3 & 4 diploma. I have ten years combined experience of working with families with new born babies as a Maternity Nurse and with older babies and children (including twins) as a former Nanny. I am very passionate about my work and am always seeking opportunities to provide added value with the families I work with in terms of the support and guidance that I provide.
