"Maternity Mum was extremely helpful and efficient in finding me a lovely experienced maternity nurse for my 8 week old baby, who was suffering from reflux. I was sleep deprived and struggling with breastfeeding. Cheryl gave me both practical advice and emotional support, thank you."

Maternity Mum is honoured to win this prestigious award by the UK Enterprise Awards for "Best Maternity Nurse Agency 2020"

Maternity Mum Agency was established by Cheryl Foster to create a professional and personal maternity nurse service providing specialist postnatal care for new parents, living in the UK and overseas.

Over my 20 years career as a midwife and maternity nurse, I have had the privilege of caring for hundreds of mums and their newborn babies. I love nurturing relationships between parents, families and their babies.

As a mum myself I am aware of the importance for mums to rest and recuperate following childbirth and in the early postnatal period and the many benefits of having an experienced, knowledgeable maternity nurse to offer guidance and support.

I am organised, resourceful and dedicated to helping families find their perfect maternity nurse.
