RN, Midwife, Doula
As we gain more women seeking home birth in Southern Illinois, I need more supportive team players from that region! I am happy to introduce Jaime Richardson, wife to Troy and mother to 3 beautiful children and 3 grandchildren! Jaime has been a prenatal and postpartum nurse for 18 years. She is an experienced Certified Lactation Consultant and has served as a birth assistant, doula and lactation counselor for Labor of Love for several years! She will be graduating from MCU with her Certified Professional Midwife degree in early 2024! We are so excited to have more options available to women in Illinois!
Jaime loves to volunteer at the local Pregnancy Care Center doing ultrasounds. In her free time, she enjoys the outdoors, camping, spending time at the lake, and spending time with family and furry friends. She also was a surrogate mother to twins (pictured) who live in Spain!
Tiffany resides in Martinsville IL with her husband and 2 children. She has served as a birth assistant for Labor of Love for the past few years! She will be graduating as a Certified Nurse Midwife from Frontier Nursing University in September of 2023 and we are so excited to have her joining the ranks of the Labor of Love team!
