Other notes

My experience:

*I have years of experiences being a mother nurturing all my children in all their key stages and getting to know them individually and knowing their own comforts and needs of support giving them the best possible advice and learning and development skills they need.

Trainings and working in a Hospital environment caring for Mothers and babies was a wonderful experience supporting parents with care for their baby is a honour and seeing a life changing experience for first time parents was a joy. Working in the health care has definitely taught me a lot in care support and to appreciate my family life and my children.


Learning childcare has also given me a greater knowledge and confidence in understanding how to care and support the needs for children in their learning and developments especially in the early years stages for children.

*My experience working as an Maternity healthcare assistant I have gained skills in supporting first time mothers and mothers including fathers who need extra help after delivering their baby with

-breastfeeding,

-helping with basic support handling the baby for the first time,

-bathing baby,

-changing baby into baby clothes,

-changing nappies,

- Bottle feed baby,

- support how to burp their new baby and

- Theatre training working along the scrub nurses doing important routine operational care supporting during active Caesarean section.

*I have Volunteering experiences doing a Induction Training Volunteering for Wandsworth Children's centre and have been awarded a Certificate of achievement and I also had another volunteer experience working in a local primary school in their Reception year childcare setting.

*Babysitting for neighbour and friends.

*I can provide references.
