What if I commit to a 12 week booking but the client feels after 8 weeks that she is coping because I have got the baby into such a fantastic routine?
We would suggest that the client eases herself into taking charge of her baby on a gradual basis, for example the Maternity Nurse changes to ‘nights only’ or does some daytime hours and some nights while looking after the baby’s nursery. A new mother takes time to recover and in the early weeks she can feel stronger than she actually is. It’s important she doesn’t overdo things to hinder a full recovery.
In any event, a week’s notice from the client is fair and this should be addressed in the contract.
