When One Door Closes...
In November 2021, I walked away from the hospital setting after two decades of service. I've worked in ER and NICU and taught at the university level in everything from Med Surg to Labor and Delivery. I dedicated nights, weekends, holidays and missed time with my family to care for others, sometimes in unsafe conditions. I endured threats and verbal abuse from patients and their families, all in the name of patient care. Fast forward to 2021...It became clear to me that my vision for healthcare no longer aligned with what I saw in the hospital. Providers who spoke up about adverse event patterns in C-19 vaccinated pregnant women were ridiculed and silenced. As a pregnant and then nursing mother, I refused to receive the vaccine. I was told that I was no longer welcome in the very same unit where I spent 10 years saving life after life. Although this was upsetting at the time, it has allowed me to pursue my passion for holistic care and offer more services to my community. Now, I experience the satisfaction of helping my patients in a way that I know will not harm them or cause adverse side effects. I attend births in the comfort of women's homes, not the cold hospital environment. I am able to equip mothers to care for their own children without running to the doctor every week with every new virus. All of this, and I'm home with my babies every night. I'd call that a win.
