Nursery Next Door's original concept was to help expectant and new parents navigate the often scary and confusing journey of parenthood. Sometimes you don't have family to help, and often there is conflicting information on the internet and it can be hard to know who to trust. This vision has since shifted.
I was a Registered Nurse for 35 years, with not only NICU and Post Partum experience, but also a variety of nursing areas. During my nursing career I became disillusioned with our present healthcare system. I had learned about the Law of Attraction, channeling & other metaphysical concepts. I felt I could no longer work in a healthcare system that didn't address more than the physical body - that the mind & soul were just as important. I felt I needed to leave nursing, and develop a program that was unique & could help address these concerns.
I plan to give expectant & new parents not only factual information from my prior nursing experience, but also teach people how they can change their circumstances through the Law of Attraction & other metaphysical techniques too. Too few people tap into their intuitive skills- we can live a much fuller life doing such simple mind shifts.
Coming soon! I am presently rebranding my offerings to ones that align more with what I feel Nursery Next Door was always meant to accomplish.
There is more to Sandra than being a now retired RN. Having an adult son with special needs has provided her a different perspective on Motherhood. This gives her the expertise, empathy and compassion to work with parents of this population. Sandra also has a daughter, who has a successful career in Healthcare, working as a Social Worker. Sandra is married to her second husband Larry, who also has an adult son, Jarod.
Sandra loves horseback riding and during her teen years she trained horses and took customers on riding trails during the summer months, in British Columbia. Although she hadn't played the piano since her childhood, in 2019 Sandra decided to start attending weekly piano lessons. She thinks she is getting pretty talented, and has also started singing, while playing the piano (not an easy feat).
Frequently Asked Questions
Why do you call yourself Nursery Next Door? Who do you offer services for?
I used to work with babies in post partum and NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care) and they often called the NICU I worked at "Nursery", so that is how I got that name. I offer services for expectant and new parents of babies up to 6 months of age, that want to experience a different birthing experience. Anyone who is open to learning how to learn to use their intuition is someone I would LOVE to teach these easy to learn skills.
