Seminar maternity nurses in private households

Pro­fes­sio­nal work as a mate­r­ni­ty nur­se in the pri­va­te household

The birth of a child is one of the most won­derful moments in the life of a woman and a fami­ly. Hol­ding a new­born baby for the first time crea­tes the deepest bon­ding that exists bet­ween mother and child. Out of respect for this inti­ma­cy, our goal is to send only well-qua­li­fied mate­r­ni­ty nan­nies. This semi­nar is meant for peo­p­le who are dedi­ca­ted to their your when working with new­borns and babies: nan­nies, edu­ca­tors and pedia­tric nur­ses who want to gain addi­tio­nal qua­li­fi­ca­ti­ons and update their know­ledge. Here we offer you a semi­nar that is per­fect­ly tail­o­red to the needs of pri­va­te child­ca­rers in fami­lies. Wieb­ke Mechau and Dr. Lud­wig Schmid will bring you up to date with their know-how and their many years of prac­ti­cal expe­ri­ence in the field of home care for new­borns and babies and pro­fes­sio­nal work in pri­va­te households.

Cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on as High Pro­fi­le Nanny

Many fami­lies sup­port their nan­ny in their desi­re for more edu­ca­ti­on. They pay for part or all of the cour­se and give her time off in order to be able to attend. If you would like to attend a semi­nar and are not sure how to pay for the fee, we will find a solu­ti­on. Just give us a call.
