Editor of The Maternity Nurse Magazine

Become a Contributor!

Thank you for your interest in becoming a contributor for The Maternity Nurse Magazine. We very much welcome working with writers with expertise in infant care and have a few guidelines here to help streamline the article submission process.

 The Maternity Nurse Magazine

Who We Are

The Maternity Nurse Magazine launched in October 2023 and is available digitally and in print.

The magazine is produced by qualified Gold Standard VIP Maternity Nurses and specialist media personnel. 

 

We are a specialist baby magazine for parents and dedicated infant care professionals. 

We will strive to keep our articles engaging and relevant, which means we’re constantly on the lookout for fresh ideas, unique perspectives, and thought-provoking topics.

Who You Are

Perhaps you are a qualified Maternity Nurse with sound knowledge and years of experience to share?

You could have a medical background with a paediatric speciality?

Maybe you are a certified lactation consultant or a college lecturer.

If you have a speciality relating to the care and development of infants we would love to hear from you.

What We Do & Don't Do
Contributor Guidelines

The Maternity Nurse Magazine is not a blog; therefore we prefer not to publish personal stories. Rather, we look for informative, and educational contributions full of engaging content that can remain relevant to our community through time. If you have some expert advice to offer, insight into something you see going on in the world of infant care and the Maternity Nurse profession, tips about juggling life as a Maternity Nurse or Infant care specialist roles, or perhaps some ideas about trends in raising babies and infant care and working in this profession, or even a parent that has experience of booking in-home private childcare, then we’d love for you to become a contributor for The Maternity Nurse Magazine as a one off contributor or one of our go to advisors!

 

If you are looking to write a personal feature to promote your services or business, head on over to the advertising page where you will find information on advertising options.

Please note that we will not publish purely self-promotional articles, content that promotes businesses you own, or businesses that have hired you to write about them as a contributor. We aim to take an unbiased view point and aim to give honest opinions and information.

If you would like to promote your business or services we have a classified and business section for you.

 

If your guest post meets our criteria for publication, we will include your relevant business link in our contributor thanks page but not in the body of the article itself.

Contributor Submission Process
Ready to contribute? Great! Fill out the form below and include a few topic ideas you have. Or if you can tell us about your areas of interest and expertise, we may be able to guide you to topics that we’re currently working on sourcing.  Please do not ask for link insertions in the body of the article, and please do not pitch topics that have nothing to do with our audience.

How it works
The Maternity Nurse Magazine Contributors are not employees of The Maternity Nurse Magazine and do not receive compensation for submissions. You may choose to pitch articles ideas, or we can provide article ideas to you. We ask that all submissions be proofread and edited for spelling and fact-checking before they are submitted. We reserve the right to edit articles as needed to fit our brand voice or for SEO purposes.


Why should I write for The Maternity Nurse Magazine?
The Maternity Nurse Magazine provides an audience of Parents, Maternity Nurses, Infant Care Professionals & Prospective Clients for you to share information about your expertise and profession.

All Magazine issues are posted on Facebook, Instagram, any sponsors, The Maternity Nurse Magazine Website and The National Nursery Examination Board Old Collegians Facebook page and group.

 

You may use your personal social media and website to promote links to any of your  contributing articles for Maternity Nurse Magazine and to build a fan base and readership within The Maternity Nurse Magazine community, after the article is published in The Maternity Nurse Magazine. This does not mean sharing the actual article itself, but a link to the magazine you contributed to. 

 

All writers are given contributor thanks on the contributor’s page, which includes a short bio, website link, and social media links.

 

Additionally, if a contributor writer has submitted several high-quality articles, we may then invite you to become a paid guest writer for future editions.
