    Hi, can anyone tell me if there is much work for young maternity nurses out there, as it seams like famillies want older, mature ladys. Im 21 and doing a maternity practitioners course in october, i have always wanted to look after newborns and have plenty newborn experience.
    I also want to become a night nurse.
    Any advice would be a great help.
    Thank you.
    Abi.

    Couldn't tell you about work, but in my opinion...when I was in labour I wouldn't have cared if nurse was young, old, smelly, hairy or bald lmao, as long as she was helping!

    I had astudent that couldnt have been older than 21 and she was fantastic!!! I could have cared less about the midwife/nurse as long as they know what they are doing thats all that matters!! Good luck!!

    i had six different midwives during my labour/emergency csection and i really related to the slightly maturer ones. my opinion was you haven't had a baby so how would you know the pain/fear etc lol. my friend though liked the younger ones as she could relate to her.
