Morgan RN, BSN

Wife, Boy Mama, Breastfeeding Advocate


My name is Morgan, I am the younger sister, a nurse, new mama, and wife to a loving hubby. Some might say that I am dramatic but I prefer to classify myself as passionate–hey I’m a middle child it’s not my fault! Life for me includes a love for crafting, baking, strolling the aisles of target and a dislike for cleaning the kitchen or doing the laundry. As co-creater of Mamahood in a Nutshell I want to welcome you to the crazy we call life!

I am learning how to juggle time with my son and hubby all while working full-time. I love working as a nurse but I love being a mama even more, finding a life-work balance has been hard but it has forced me to be more organized and way more flexible. Being intentional with the time I spend with my family means we turn the little moments we have together into big fun!

As a maternal-child health nurse I am always searching for solid information to share, I think that it is important that mama’s are as informed as possible because our kiddos depend on us to take the best care of them possible. I may not be able to diagnose, treat, or prescribe but I can educate, advocate, and encourage you, and believe me that can go a long way. I hope to become a certified lactation consultant, my breastfeeding journey has fueled a desire to help other mama’s reach their nursing goals. It will take some time to earn my certification but I will be sharing lots of tips, resources, and info along the way.

It seems like everybody these days is gluten free including me! I developed a gluten intolerance my senior year of college and have been missing it ever since. But thankfully GF foods have come a long way, be sure to try out the yummy GF recipes I post to fill the bellies of your family.

Our blog is a window into our lives, I hope you stay a while and get to know us.
