Quote from caroladybelle
I am wondering if she listed herself as being "BabyDoctor" or "BabyAttourney" in the Washington Post....with the same disclaimer, if it would fly?????
Somehow, I think not.
You could bet a large sum of $ on that! I do not know specific rules, but MD BON will soon be dealing w/ her since she has put herself in the paper. I found a quote on her website interesting:
"A baby nurse is not a Registered Nurse (RN), Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) or Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). At present there is no formal schooling for a baby nurse,
though the art of baby nursing can be dated back to very early times in history. A skilled baby nurse draws upon a variety of disciplines to prepare her for this job including newborn care, early childhood education, lactation education, nutrition, sleep habits, safety, parenting and bonding. Babiease is firmly committed to staying abreast of the most current practice."
As far as the no formal schooling goes. There are such things as becoming a certified doula or going to school to become a licensed care nurses (RN's and LPN's) specialized in neonatal nursing. She must think there is something she is getting out of the title nurse
or she would not use it. She would call herself a mother's helper, which is truly what she is. I've delivered a few babies, what would happen if I called myself an ob. I bet I might get a nice orange or striped junpsuit to wear.
