Education:

  • Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing (BSN) — New York University
  • Masters Degree of Nurse Midwifery — New York University Rory Meyers College of Nursing Nurse-Midwifery Program

Livvy is a registered nurse (RN) and board-certified nurse midwife (CNM) in the state of New Jersey. After giving birth to her newborn daughter, Livvy stepped down from her full-time position at the Children’s Hospital of New Jersey to care for her newborn. This also gave her the opportunity to spend more time with her second passion — writing health and lifestyle articles on all topics related to pregnancy and prenatal care.

She shares her knowledge on pre and postnatal care, breastfeeding, and early parenthood through her writing at HMHB.org and other pregnancy-related online blogs. Livvy is also working on a book for expecting parents which she aims to publish sometime in early 2020.
