Tess, a Women's Healthcare Nurse Practitioner
About half of Tess' patients are fetal high risk. She is with them when they get the good news, she is with them when they get the bad news. If babies remain in the hospital after birth, she's with them then too. She is honored to join these families on their journey, however it turns out. Experienced and savvy, she shifts to meet the particular emotional needs of each patient. About every 15 minutes some days. What's in her head when she's doing her job? What does she take home with her? How is she changed by her job?
