Labor & Delivery
Women's Center Manager
"I am passionate about connected care. And evaluating what my patients need. Instead of living the golden rule of treating others how you want to be treated, I prefer to treat others how THEY want to be treated."
One Piece of Advice: Your baby’s birth story is exactly what your baby needs. Lean into it, and experience it with them as it unfolds.
Postpartum/Mother-Baby Registered Nurse, Preceptor
“I enjoy how rewarding it is to assist a new parent through the up's and downs of adding a new member to their family. I get the opportunity to educate, comfort, and reassure parents as they take this next step in their lives.”
One Piece of Advice: Attend our free prenatal classes and follow your doctor’s advice and go to your prenatal visits as scheduled.
Labor Charge Nurse
“I feel joy in making a difference in a significant time in women's lives. I like helping support women through the birthing process. For some it can be easy and for others very difficult and not as they anticipated. I enjoy educating and being an advocate for each patient I care for.”
One Piece of Advice: Be flexible. Know that the nursing staff is here to support you and to help you have a good experience, while providing safe care for mom and baby.
Labor and Delivery Registered Nurse
“I love to be a part of one of the most important days in people’s lives. I love witnessing couples become parents.”
One Piece of Advice: Enjoy the journey, whether it’s pregnancy or labor or postpartum, these moments don’t come around often. Soak every moment up, from the first time you hold your new baby to the sleepless nights.
Labor Charge Nurse
“The thing that I love most about my job is the opportunity to meet incredible, strong women who trust me to care for them. I genuinely care about these women and want the best outcome for them by providing them with experience they want.”
One Piece of Advice: Bring an idea of how you want your labor to progress and what you want to experience. Everyone has different needs, everyone is unique, and every labor including the delivery of their baby is a unique and special experience.
“After having my first child, I realized how much a supportive nurse can change your experience. I love that I have the chance to empower the women I am able to take care of! No matter how your child enters the world, you are amazing and what your body did is incredible.”
One Piece of Advice: Be patient with yourself! Every child is different and there is no owner’s manual to figure this out. Know it is okay to say I don't know or ask for help!
"My job is the greatest. It is almost like being a superhero. It is so rewarding to come into a room and have someone who is so nervous and in so much pain. Then begin an anesthesia provider. I am able to take those both away within minutes. I love the way Mountain View has arranged to have specific anesthesia providers just for Obstetrics. It allows for superior care. We can literally be at the patient’s beck and call to individualize the epidural to what our patient wants."
One Piece of Advice: Epidurals are amazing. If you have had a bad experience in the past or have heard horror stories please give us a chance to change your mind of what a great epidural can be.
“I started in the NICU here at MVH in 2015. It has quickly become a second family to me. The staff put their whole hearts into taking care of these infants who need our help. I have come to love taking care of not only the babies but their families as well. The ups and downs, the days we cry together and the days we celebrate the smallest wins are all things that make my job one that I love. I am so proud and thankful that I am given the opportunity and knowledge to help these little warriors get stronger.”
One Piece of Advice: Having a baby in the NICU is no one's ideal birth plan. Try to find joy in the imperfect moments. Lean on the nurses, we will do everything we can to care for your baby, and when you can’t be there we'll snuggle them for you. Take time to take care of yourself and GET SOME SLEEP while you have the best “babysitters” out there.
“I always knew I wanted to be a NICU Nurse growing up. I thought there could be no better job. Being in this profession is the hardest but most rewarding thing. Bringing families together and helping these precious babies thrive is so special. The team here at Mountain View cares so deeply for these sweet babies and gives nothing but their best!”
One Piece of Advice: Enjoy the crazy ride of parenthood! Cherish every moment, even the hard ones, because it all goes so fast!
