Maternity care

Private maternity nursing

The day you hold your newborn baby in your arms, a whole new world opens up. This new world can feel overwhelming for some new parents, so you may need time and space to settle into your role as parents and to build that early bond with your new baby.

With the help of an experienced and dedicated maternity nurse from Private Nurse, you can get help with exactly what your new family needs. A nurse or midwife can be with you before, during and after birth, depending on your needs. Some of our clients have had a Private Nurse in the delivery room. Others have used our help from the moment they arrived at their room in the maternity ward. Others have needed us to move into their private home and be available around the clock.

Maternity care

In hospital

There are many family forms and constellations. More and more women are choosing to become pregnant with the help of a donor and may therefore need to have a private nurse or midwife with them before, during and after the birth. There may also be women who have violent experiences from previous births and therefore need a private nurse/midwife by their side throughout the birth and in the days afterwards.

We listen to your story, and together we tailor a program that supports your wishes and needs. Our most important task is to make you feel safe and support you in your wishes, so that you will always remember your child's birth and first time with joy and good memories.

When you get home

When you come home from hospital, you have a big task on your shoulders. Many new parents have never carried a baby in their hands before and are therefore not always prepared for the task. The questions are many and they arise all the time. Nowadays, the mother/baby is sent home on the same day as the birth. It can feel overwhelming to come home, tired after a hard birth and with a new baby whose milk has not yet come in. This is where the Private Nurse can step in and help you with all the things you may need. For example, help with putting your new baby to bed, establishing breastfeeding and teaching you about maternity care.

New parents

What to do when baby cries?
How to get baby to eat?
How do you change the baby, how and how much/less should baby be dressed?
Does baby sleep too little/too much and what about the umbilical cord?

Maybe you didn't sleep well during pregnancy. Now the baby or babies are born and are awake at all the times you need to sleep. With experienced maternity nurses from Private Nurse, you'll be sure to have all the help and support you need. We're with you, ready to show, guide, support and motivate. And we are the extra hands you might need, so you can retire for a few hours and get some sleep until you have to sit with your little one in your arms again.

Day care

Maternity nurses from Private Nurse can move in with you, if needed, and stay with you day and night for the first few days. Depending on how many days or weeks you need help and support, you will be assigned a permanent team of 2-4 nurses. If you contact us before the due date, we can put together a team that best matches your little family. Of course, we can also step in at short notice if, after returning home from the maternity ward, you find that things are getting worse and that you need support and help from caring and experienced maternity nurses.

Private Nurse is happy to help you tailor a maternity program for you, and always with full discretion. Our finest task is to offer you maternity care that can support, motivate, relieve and take care of you, so that you all get off to a safe and good start in your new role as a family with children.

Getting a foothold with maternity care

We've had good words to say

  • "Dear PrivateNurse and the whole team,

    Thank you very much for stepping in in an acute and very critical situation for my mother and for our whole family. Your professionalism and care/parish was amazing and very competent.

    Highest recommendations from here."

  • "I can highly recommend Private Nurse, who at a few weeks' notice jumped in and helped us during a stressful illness with ALS, where we suddenly needed professional nursing assistance for my father. In such a stressful situation, it is important that communication is professional and controlled, and that the nurses are calm and competent. This was definitely the case with Private Nurse. We were always in close contact with their nurse coordinator and all the nurses who came to my father were skilled, responsible and empathetic. It gave us the peace of mind we needed in our final days. So my warmest recommendations from here. "

  • "In connection with various severe complications after my mother had hip surgery, we had Johanne assigned to us as a private nurse. Johanne managed the extensive medication and not least pain relief, and my mother gained confidence in Johanne already after the first visit. The professional help that Johanne has provided, her care and general sympathetic nature has meant a lot to my mother and the rest of the family during a difficult time. Thank you so much for you, Johanne."

  • "After our father's death, it was difficult for our mother to be alone a lot and we could not cover visits to her every day ourselves. Therefore, it was a great support that Private Nurse was able to help at very short notice with 2-3 weekly visits to our mother for a couple of months.

    Pleasant visits with chats and short walks helped to gradually help her through the first difficult time".

  • "In 2022, I fell ill and was hospitalized. My son, who lives abroad, had been recommended to contact Johanne from Private Nurse, who came to see me at the hospital the same day. Here she and my children made sure that I could return home to my own house with private nursing and physiotherapists around the clock. I am convinced that if I had stayed in the hospital, I would never have come home again. ....

    With the help of intensive training, care, home cooking and intellectual companionship, I've gone from being virtually disabled to not just walking again, but walking WELL! I sleep at night because my days are filled with conversations, road trips and flavorful food.

    My nurses are not just nurses who come and go. They are kind, skilled, helpful, interesting and interested. They remember all my little habits and things that are important to me. Overall, having them with me means that my life is enriched with care. They make me feel like a whole person again, not just an old man.

    We talk a lot, converse. I think our conversations keep my head going. Because I've been surrounded by a lot of people all my life, including all my coworkers through my work. I retired at 92 and never had a problem until a year ago when I was hospitalized with an infection. My nurses from Private Nurse helped me get back to my life and because of them I am once again attending communions, bridge nights and other family gatherings. Last month I celebrated my 97th birthday with family from all over Europe.

    One of the things that has made me the happiest is that I feel that my nurses are telling the truth when they express their joy in coming to me. In fact, I feel it, that they like my company. I appreciate immensely all our conversations about climate change, the world and nowadays about the entry of robots into the political agenda, AI. You've almost become like family, besides all seven of my children and 32 grandchildren and great-grandchildren."

  • "When our father became terminally ill, he wanted to spend his last days at home and we struggled to get public assistance, but ran into long waits and summer vacations.

    Private Nurse and the entire team were our saviors! In just a few days, they set up absolutely amazing help and support with visits and care every day and were incredibly flexible in quickly adapting care as the disease progressed.

    Thanks to Private Nurse and the amazing and highly professional nurses, our father got the end of life he wanted."
