It gives parents an opportunity to spend time with their older children, whilst the maternity nurse takes care of the baby. Or to take a nap or catch up on other household chores.
Often partners have to return back to work following paternity leave and it's reassuring for parents to have an experienced professional postnatal carer to help.
