"Hello My name is Lindsey and I am the face behind East Midlands and Warwickshire Maternity Night Nanny and Babysitter, yes a very long business name but needed it to cover what I do and not be confused with others of a similar name. I am also a mother of a little boy born in Aug 2010. I have been working with children for 16yrs and am a qualified childrens nurse and now do some nursing work alongside my business my night nanny and babysitting work is very ad-hoc but I love the varied work and the families I work for.
As a night nanny I care for babies from newborn including multiples supporting parents in establishing routine and advicing on all baby matters with the added benefits on taking over care of baby for the night so parents can get some sleep, if breastfeeding this can be done by me taking the baby to the mother and then settling after or giving a bottle of expressed milk.
I have set up my own website www.eastmidlandsnightnanny.moonfruit.com and am proud of what I have achieved so far and love the fact my work fits around being a mum. It is wonderful to be July business mum of the month and will hopefully spread the word and more families will get to enjoy the benefits of having a maternity night nanny. I have found the networking mummies website invaluable for tips and advice and the local facebook page great for networking with other local business' and hope to attend a meeting in the future. "
