About Me - Information about Jennifer White's background and experience in Babynursing.About Me
Dear Prospective Client,

My family and upbringing planted the seed for what my chosen career would be. Being the second oldest of 6 children allowed me to literally grow up around babies. Due to my motherís need for an extra set of hands I quickly learned the basics of infant care. I was diapering babies before I could read! My hands-on experience with my younger siblings led to neighborhood babysitting in Hudson, Ohio during my teen years. My professional childcare experience began following my graduation from high school in 1995. In September of 1995 I accepted my first full time nanny position and in July of 2003 I was hired for my first overnight newborn position caring for premature twins.

My paid childcare experience includes 3 long term nanny positions and various temporary and on-call positions working with families found both on my own and through agencies. I have continued to work exclusively with newborns following my first baby nurse position in July of 2003. Iíve worked with singletons, multiples, premature infants and infants with complications. I am experienced with the protocol for reflux, apnea monitors and administering breathing treatments. Additionally, I am well read concerning issues pertaining to postpartum care of both the mother and newborn. The specific families Iíve worked with along with the ages of children are all listed in my resume. References or letters of recommendation are available from previous clients.

In addition to my paid childcare experience my volunteer work experience has contributed significantly to my development as a childcare professional. During 3 years of counseling for a teen crisis hotline, I maintained professionalism and maturity in sensitive and/or confidential situations concerning children and their families, and became proficient at deescalating high-stress situations affecting their well-being. I served as a House Parent in a Filipino orphanage for a three-month term in 1998, where I was responsible for the welfare and educational development of nineteen orphaned children under my care. My team of three House Parents supervised the payroll and work schedule of four local employees on the project staff, enhancing my skills at working as part of a larger childcare team. This project also honed my ability to adapt quickly to changing environments and events in an exotic location while still accomplishing the objective of providing quality childcare.

At the present time my hobbies include cooking, knitting/crochet, traveling, hiking, seeing the ocean, discovering new coffee shops, watching sitcoms and shopping. I also love spending time with my family. We have a lot of fun when we all come together around the holidays.

My infant care philosophy is simple. I want to be a calming presence in the homes I work in. My job is to teach through example providing parents with the tools needed to take over when I leave. I am friendly and easy going. I tend to blend naturally and quickly into new homes. I am fully capable of full-charge infant care however I never mind parental/sibling involvement. My philosophy is to encourage bonding between the parents and their newborn. I am aware of the multitude of health benefits associated with breastfeeding (for both mom and baby) and thus encourage breastfeeding for Moms who want to nurse. Having said that, I fully support any motherís decision to formula feed if she so chooses. I recognize that not all women can breastfeed; in fact, the majority of my clients do formula-feed.

Working as a baby nurse is something that brings me a great deal of personal satisfaction. I am able to incorporate my organizational skills, my creativity, and my love for babies all into my career, and see daily growth and development as a result of my work. Thank you for taking the time to read about my background and philosophies. I look forward to speaking with you regarding your postpartum needs.  

Best regards,

Jennifer White
