"I participated in the Queen City Newborn Care internship over the summer. I came in as a birth doula, but finished my summer not only as a newborn care specialist, but as a confident NCS. Meg was an amazing mentor, always ready when I had questions. She helped me see the work QCNC does through multiple perspectives. The modules that I completed gave me a broader understanding of the postpartum journey a family takes and how I can best serve my local community. This internship gave me knowledge that I was able to apply during my volunteer time, confidence with myself, my skills and clients, and a new love for working with new moms and babies." - Faith Anna Pinkston, Summer 2018
