Anna States “Being a nurse and a mother, I saw a gap in the market for good quality community home care. I felt the community care wasn’t at the same standard as in the UK and that inspired me to start my own business in Dubai.
Nightingale has got an amazing team that works so hard to make this company one of the best in Dubai. I am very proud of my whole team and we have many exciting opportunities to look forward to with our New Health Hub within the Gold and Diamond Park”
I am Malin, a Swedish nurse and midwife with experience from working in Hospitals and the community. I completed my bachelor of nursing course in Sweden 2011 after that I went on to work in the private sector before I completed my master-degree in midwifery and reproductive health. I moved to Dubai in 2014 and worked in labour and delivery unit in a busy hospital. I became a personal trainer during my pregnancy with my first child. Now, I have 2 children.
My passion is definitely small babies and to help mothers and babies to get the best start as possible together after delivery. I had both my babies delivered here in Dubai and I was struggling with finding support needed when i had just delivered and took my newborn baby home.
I am looking forward to meeting expectant and postnatal couples and giving them the advice and support they need.
