The maternity nurse will have a formal education as a nurse or midwife. The maternity nurse guides and helps the mother through her first nerve-wracking and tiring months with a new baby. The maternity nurse will often live-in and be on duty six days a week, 24 hours a day for a specified period in order to help the mother with breast or bottle feeding and to generally establish a regular feeding and sleeping routine for the baby. She will sterilize and prepare bottles, change nappies and settle the baby to sleep. She will also care for the baby’s clothes and environment.
