Working with small babies is a really rewarding career.
You will be supporting families with their new arrival or arrivals, looking after the well being of both parents and their baby.
When working closely with babies, it is really important to be able to recognise when the baby is becoming sick so you can act quickly, support the parents, and communicate with the emergency services. Good quality first aid training is crucial to the role.
It is also vital to be able to recognise when things are not quite as they should be, a knowledge of safeguarding is key to protecting small children who are the most vulnerable members of society. Everyone has a duty to protect vulnerable children.
