I had Babyem trainee maternity nurses support me for 10 weeks following my twins’ arrival. The situation was made more complex that normal by one of my twins having a chronic illness (and needing feeding-tube assistance) in addition to chronic reflux. The range of support I had was fantastic, and it’s clear that the training offered is very thorough. I don’t know what I would have done without the support of Babyem during this difficult time as recommend them: a) if you’re a parent wishing for newborn support; b) if you’re looking to be trained by an organisation that is run by a very caring an empathetic director where you will learn lots!
Babyem was quick to respond to my request for help and paired me up with Chantal, a fantastic maternity nurse whose knowledge and willingness to share it with me was invaluable in the difficult early days of being a new mum to twins.
