Private maternity nurses

Some women choose to have their babies in an NHS maternity unit, but then invest in additional help and support after the birth. The most common option is to employ a private maternity nurse to help with child care during the early weeks. This can be of benefit to those women who have had a caesarean or a difficult birth. Maternity nurses specialise in the care of newborn babies and are often ex-midwives.


Typical costs for a private maternity nurse are in the range £700 to £1,000 per week.
