Allow Yourself Plenty Of Time
Many of our clients contact us at 6-8 weeks’ gestation, while others may wait until 12 weeks when the pregnancy has progressed further to confirm whether they are expecting a single baby or multiples.
Whilst we can assist you at any stage of your pregnancy, we would encourage you to register between 8-12 weeks gestation so that you have the widest selection of Night Nannies and Maternity Nurses to choose from.
To begin with, you may be unsure of how long you wish to book for, however, during your consultation with Maternally Yours and whilst speaking with prospective caregivers, you will receive ample information which will enable you to make the right decision for you.

Please note, if any part of your proposed booking falls over the Christmas season we would recommend you confirm your booking as early as possible, as there is always a shortage of available caregivers who work over the holiday period.

What If My Due Date Is Imminent?
Acknowledging that life doesn’t always go to plan, whilst we recommend choosing your Maternity Nurse or Night Nanny early on in pregnancy, we are adept in presenting clients with a small but equally qualified selection of short notice candidates. Knowing our caregivers’ diaries, strengths, personalities and their style of working, we are well practised at providing a quick solution for our clients’ urgent requests.
Subject to availability, we can connect you with Maternity Nurses or Night Nannies anywhere from on the same day to later on in the booking, guiding you at every step of the way. Please telephone us on +44 (0) 207 795 6299 as soon as possible to discuss your options.
What If Baby Has Already Arrived?
First of all, many many congratulations, the magical journey has begun…
We often receive phone calls from new parents who require expert support after all. This could be due to a number of reasons, such as a prolonged birth or an unexpected C-Section, or perhaps a privately booked Maternity Nurse or Night Nanny has let them down, or quite simply they are feeling totally overwhelmed and exhausted.
If this applies to you, we would be delighted to assist by providing you with a small list of candidates who we fondly refer to as ‘Waiting in the Wings’ caregivers.
Subject to availability, we can coordinate a Maternity Nurse or Night Nanny bto arrive on the same day depending on the urgency. Assessing your requirements, we’ll ensure a streamlined process to provide the support you need.

What If My Baby Is Older And Still Not Sleeping Through The Night?
If you are a parent who did not book a Maternity Nurse or Night Nanny, and you are still suffering from interrupted nights sleeps at 4+ months, you will undoubtedly be feeling the strain. By 4+ months, most babies are capable of sleeping through the night and adhering to a routine. However, many parents struggle to set up an effective schedule and decide they’d like to enlist the help of a professional.
The good news is we can assist, by providing a selection of Maternity Nurses or Night Nannies who can specifically work on setting up a routine that is appropriate for your baby’s age. Working with you, she will assess the current routine, discuss the issues before making suggestions on how to adjust your baby’s feeding, playing, changing and napping times in order to get him sleeping through the night.
Whilst there are a variety of strong opinions and methods recognised in helping your little one to settle, our Maternity Nurses and Night Nannies will only ever use an approach that parents agree with. It’s important that our Maternity Nurses and Night Nannies work well with parents, and by our consultants understanding our clients’ style and wishes, we are mindful how important the right personality match is to fit parents’ needs at this special time.
