Meet Amy, Pitt County Posts new columnist. In her columns she will talk about pregnancy, health and children.
Amy started her nursing career at the ripe age of 20 and over the last 13 years has transitioned from senior care, to medical and postoperative surgical care. In the last 7 years however she has been able to practice what she says is her truest passion, maternal and newborn care. Amy says she “truly enjoys her job in every aspect. However, there is a saying in her unit “when its good it’s really good and when it’s bad it’s really bad. This saying rings true in all nursing fields she says but especially in a speciality area such as newborns because there is nothing more celebrated than a birth, but nothing more devastating than a loss.
Amy has been privileged and bereaved to have been involved in just about every single aspect of pregnancy from the beginning to the end- in whatever outcome the mother may face.
As a mom and a nurse she tries to connect to every patient in the way they need to have the best experience possible
Amy is also considered an expert in her field because of the personal journeys she has gone through as well. After several years of struggling with infertility and suffering multiple pregnancy loss, having several surgeries and having to go through the emotional roller coaster of invitro, she is now a mom to a set of six year old twin boys who constantly challenge her on every level but loves them with all her heart. She says they make her “strive to be the best person she can be”
Amy will be writing weekly columns for the Oh Baby! section on pittcountypost.com. Come back and visit often.
