Nicole grew up in Wilmington and is excited to be offering care in her hometown. She received a Bachelors degree in Neural Behavioral Psychology from Bryn Mawr College. Following her graduation from Bryn Mawr, Nicole spent time working in Child-Maternal Health with the Peace Corps in Madagascar, East Africa. She later returned to school and received a Bachelors of Science in Nursing and a double Masters of Science in Nursing, specializing in Nurse-Midwifery and Women’s Health Care, from the University of Pennsylvania.
Prior to becoming a midwife, Nicole worked as a maternity nurse at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. While she learned a great deal in the fast paced, high risk environment, Nicole did not have the time nor space to provide the quality of care that she desired to give to the families that she served. Prior to her midwifery graduation in 2006, Nicole completed her internship at The Birth Center. Catching babies at TBC felt like the perfect fit. Following graduation, Nicole was a staff midwife at TBC until May 2011. Her first son was born at TBC in 2008 and in 2011, her 2nd son was born at home. After the birth of her 2nd child, she left TBC for an extended maternity leave, nesting with her boys full time.
In the fall of 2012, Nicole returned to TBC. She feels strongly about the level of care and education provided at TBC, and enjoys the cozy home-like atmosphere. Sensitive and thoughtful mind/body/spirit care for women of all ages and stages of life is important to Nicole.
“I have the best job in the world. What is better than catching babes?! I feel so honored to share in such a powerful and personal time of life with the amazing, varied families that walk through our door.”
