I remember the first baby I helped deliver at Oswego Hospital. I helped hold the mom’s leg as she pushed. She was so grateful after the baby was delivered and thought I was just the greatest. Little did she know I was so incredibly nervous and was only a student intern.
Those green scrubs made us all look like nurses, but I digress. Fast forward four years and I would get mentored by one of the country’s leading Pediatric Chiropractors while in school. I would remember her teaching as pregnant mamas, newborns and babies would come to my office. I was blessed to be mentored by phenomenal Pediatric Natural Wellness Specialist for more than a decade before I had my own children. Even though I had helped dozens of babies and mamas, had watched my techniques and natural remedies cure hundreds of dis-eases, I literally fell apart when it was my own child.
Thankfully I got myself in my first Pediatric mentor’s office in tears, terrified I was going to mess this baby up. Thankfully she was a Godsend and got us on a positive track for my newborn daughter and me.
