I am so happy you are here; it tells me that you are probably having a baby soon or thinking about it and starting to look for education classes, etc. I'll be the first to tell you, if you haven't discovered already, that there is a LOT of information out there pertaining to everything OB. There are tons of classes, videos, handouts, and everything in-between, but my approach is a little different, So let me introduce myself:
My name is Amanda, and I am the owner of Sunshine Support.
I have been working in Labor & Delivery as a Registered Nurse for about 7 years now, and have worked in the medical field as a whole, for almost 14 years. My passion lies within labor and delivery, but I have also worked in both post-partum & nursery units. I LOVE to educate. Especially a first-time set of parents. I found that time and time again, my patients were lacking even basic physiological education. Most of the time Education gets left out or brushed over quickly; I don't feel it is intentional, but rather OB providers just simply do not have the time to educate in-depth, with each individual patient. We all know how waiting at an OB appointment goes, or you soon will! On the other hand, sometimes patients feel intimidated asking questions, so they end up Googling things, or asking friends- and that’ll just get you down a deep rabbit hole. There is so much information to learn about from conception to birth, and beyond. So that's basically how I developed Sunshine Support. I want to educate, support and advocate for YOU! My approach is a personalized education and support system. I don't have a big binder of paperwork to send you, or pre-recorded lectures, PowerPoints or videos. I simply want to have personalized chats with you and your support people and educate you directly. Let YOU ask questions. Let YOU guide the learning. Let YOU take a break when needed. I also want to be your phone-a-friend, to support you. You will gain the ability to contact me 24/7, with questions, concerns, or if you're just needing a pep-talk. I want you to walk into the hospital/your Birthing place to have your baby/babies feeling confident and comfortable! I don’t want you to just walk in blindly and then end up getting bombarded with information or decisions to make, without any background education. I have a plethora of knowledge and experience with all kinds of patients, medical problems, preferences, and situations.
