Relevant volunteer or advocacy work

I am am a Registered Nurse and a Certified Professional Midwife with over 20 years experience working in hospital labor and delivery and nursery units, several free standing birth centers and home births. I am experienced with hypnobirthing, waterbirth and am familiar with all the doula programs. I have taught and mentored student midwives and student doulas, taught childbirth education classes and have been a LaLeche Leader with years of experience assisting mothers with breastfeeding, baby and child care. I have eight children of my own who were all born naturally and breastfed until they weaned on their own. I also owned a solo midwifery home birth practice in WA state and VA and opened a large free standing birth center in Northern Virginia for many years. I recently retired from that and now enjoy serving families with my background and experience as a doula.
