About Family Roots Postpartum Care

Bio

As a full spectrum obstetrical nurse for greater than 40 years I was often concerned at how overwhelmed and exhausted new Parents appeared as they were getting ready to go home with their new baby (s). Exhausted from pregnancy, birth, learning to care for their baby-it was a lot!!! They often asked if I could go home with them. I wished I could!!

Q&A

Q: What are your certifications and trainings?

A: I am blessed to be a Registered Nurse for 48 years, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant for 24 years and a Certified Postpartum Doula for 12 years.

Q: What locations or areas do you serve?

A: The greater Williamstown /Gloucester County area in south central New Jersey.

Q: What's your top piece of advice for an expectant mom?

A: Pre plan a strategy for help at home so once Baby comes you will have time to recover, rest and get to know/ enjoy your Baby. There are others who would be happy to help with meals, tidying up, laundry and just be present to watch over your baby while you catch a shower or nap.

Q: Are there any specialities in who you serve? (e.g. home birth, VBAC, etc.)

A: I have additional experience with multiples and premature infants.
