Ann’s Bio:
After graduation, Ann’s first position was on a labor and delivery unit at a small suburban hospital, working a full-time night shift, as the only RN. She then went on to work in a high-risk, inner-city labor and delivery unit. During this time period, she obtained her Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner certificate. An interest in the legal side led her to become a Legal Nurse Consultant-specializing in OB cases. She was part of the original medical team of a local freestanding birth center where I became water birth certified. She has traveled to Bolivia and Tanzania, where she taught high-risk obstetrics and maternal positioning for optimal fetal positioning. Most recently, she has obtained her certification for Spinning Babies Aware Practitioner and Evidence-Based Birth Instructor.A total obstetric nursing career of 30 years in obstetrics is Ann’s most satisfying accomplishment. Each vocation has had an influence as to why she has created Gilligan’s Guide. Her goal is to reach as many pregnant people in the world as possible. The Guide with its safety and effectiveness will create a path to reduce maternal and neonatal morbidities while promoting more satisfying and improved psychosocial outcomes for our mothers and infants.
