About

Meredith is a Registered Nurse and Certified Lactation Counselor. She has been working as as maternity/newborn nurse for 9 years. Currently she works at New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell and Mount Sinai Hospital as a postpartum and NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) nurse. Meredith also has experience in the outpatient setting in an OB/GYN office as well as a Maternal Fetal Medicine (high risk pregnancy) clinic. She has also been a member of the faculty at Columbia University School of Nursing as an OB clinical instructor. Meredith grew up in Washington, DC and received her bachelor's degree in nursing from the University of Virginia.

Meredith was an invaluable help to us. We took her newborn and breast feeding course about 5 weeks before our son Henry was born. She was knowledgeable and instructive without overwhelming or intimidating us. We were able to come up with “goals” for feeding Henry which included exclusive nursing and no pacifier or formula. When birth didn’t go as planned and Henry ended up in the NICU and was give a pacifier and formula straight away, Meredith helped us get back on track. She coached us through Henry’s time in the NICU. He surpassed his birth weight within a week and now at 10 weeks is in the 96th percentile being exclusively fed breast milk (mixing bottle and breast). I’m not sure we’d have this level of success had it not been for Meredith’s wise coaching.
