Pregnancy, childbirth, the "fourth trimester" (12 weeks postpartum), and breastfeeding were some of the most joy-filled and equally challenging times in my life. Becoming a mother changed me from the inside out. I think my husband would agree he changed too. Becoming parents may be one of life's greatest gifts, but it doesn't come with a handbook.
After the birth of my first child, I decided I would return to school to pursue a career in nursing. I wanted to help parents welcome their new baby into this world. Witnessing the birth of a child is an intimate experience, and I have considered it a privilege to support parents during such a vulnerable time in their life.
Working as a Registered Nurse,I have gained valuable experience at the bedside as a labor and delivery, postpartum, transition newborn, and lactation nurse. I have also taught childbirth education and breastfeeding classes to new and expecting parents.
I have had unique pregnancies, births, and breastfeeding journeys with each of my three children (aged 8, 4, and 2). These personal experiences have given me even more knowledge and education to pass along to expecting parents located in the Charleston, South Carolina area and beyond via virtual consults.
