Night Maternity Nurse
Beginning her career in professional childcare in 1999 after relocating from Portugal to the UK, Marisa started as an Au Pair and Nanny. After six years, Marisa decided to turn her career around her love for babies and chose to specialise in providing professional newborn and post-natal care. Completing a national accredited Maternity Nurse training in 2005, Marisa devoted her time completing Maternity bookings for eight years, when she started to care for her own son at home. After taking a break from newborn care until 2017, Marisa returned to her beloved Maternity Nursing.
With a naturally patient and loving approach, Marisa instinctively includes older siblings in the care of newborns from the early days, guiding sibling transitions to be relaxed, memorable and enjoyable. Confident and experienced, Marisa takes an adaptable approach to routine and, when required, gently encourages babies to sleep through the night within weeks of their arrival. Relaxed and patient, Marisa is supportive of both breast and bottle-feeding and enjoys providing expert advice and guidance to parents to help them understand and make informed decisions. Passionate about early childhood development, Marisa offers advice for the next steps in baby’s routine and developmental milestones leaving parents feeling empowered and confident about continuing good habits long after she has moved on.
