What is the role of a Non-Medical Maternity Nurse

Maternity Placements – thinking outside the norm


A Maternity nurse provides essential support to parents with new-born babies, typically for up to six weeks following the birth. Duties may include providing advice on feeding, bathing, sleeping, clothing and establishing routines, whilst completing these responsibilities yourself to provide parents with respite
when required.

Your role is to ensure the family settles into life with their new-born and offer guidance and encouragement throughout. This may also include helping parents integrate the new-born with other children in the family.

The role of a Maternity Nurse is growing evermore popular with parents looking for support and guidance following the birth of a new-borns. This course equips you with all the necessary techniques and knowledge to feel confident when working as a Maternity Nurse. You will learn how to approach parents in a professional and considerate way and how to effectively communicate the best methods available to them based on their individual needs.

Our Maternity Nurse training is the most informative course in the industry and provides learners with an outstanding support & mentoring package at a price that won’t be beaten.




This course is ideal for anyone who wants to become a private, non-medical Maternity Nurse. It is a great course for those who would like to further their skills when looking after new-borns and those who are already experienced and would like to receive certification, to get more recognition in their profession.

She holds an NNEB, a degree in Early Years and is a qualified nutritional therapist, childcare tutor and assessor. Julie has worked extensively with many different families through her own consultancy and aims to empower parents, finding solutions that fit their lifestyle and philosophy rather than advocating a one-size-fits-all approach. As a trainer Julie applies these same principles, prioritising up-to-date, essential information but allowing each student to find their own niche. Julie has collaborated with LSCS on a wide range of courses, bringing us her considerable experience and perspective as a nanny and maternity nurse.
