About Kitsap Perinatal
Meet the owner and founder Nicole Turner, an expert in the labor and delivery world, and learn about our services, ways to connect, and the ways we can help you have a successful pregnancy, labor, and postpartum experience.
Hi there. I’m Nicole Turner, an RN and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).
I received my Bachelors of Science in Nursing from the University of Portland in 2011. Since graduating I have dedicated my career to helping improve the health outcomes of mothers and babies by working as a labor and delivery nurse.
Throughout my career I have witnessed the powerful impact that childbirth education can have on families. I am passionate about empowering families through education. Kitsap Perinatal was born from my desire to provide pre birth education so families in our community are prepared to make informed choices about their care - which will improve health outcomes as well as enable families to have a positive birth experience.
