Lindsey Vignery, MSN, RN, IBCLC, joined the Providence Women’s Center team this fall as a lactation consultant. As a registered nurse and board-certified lactation consultant, she specializes in providing comprehensive education and support to new moms and their infants.
She has been helping families in the Kansas City area the past 10 years in a variety of roles including as a lactation consultant, nurse care navigator, and a clinic nurse for Children’s Mercy Hospital. Lindsey served many of our Providence families while working at Children’s Mercy’s clinic in central Kansas City, Kan. She previously was a labor and delivery nurse at Advent Health.
Lindsey brings excitement and compassion to her new role at Providence, working with moms as they receive prenatal care and also after they deliver their babies. She is passionate about providing comprehensive patient care and fostering relationships with new mothers and families that creates a strong network of support.
“I want to provide our patients care that is personalized to their specific needs and goals,” said Lindsey. “Our team strives to work with families from the first prenatal visit to delivery and postpartum so they have consistent education and care providers throughout the process.”
Lindsey is appreciative that the rebuilding of the Providence Women’s Center gives her an opportunity to construct a unique approach in providing new moms support related to breastfeeding and continuity of care. She shares time between the labor and delivery unit and working in the PMG OB Clinic.
“We work with many families in the community who do not speak English,” Lindsey added. “With the help of interpreters and connections to community organizations, we can provide special support to those moms who may be unsure about what is available or how to ask for assistance.”
Lindsey completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from the University of Kansas and received her Master’s degree in Nursing Leadership and Management from Western Governor’s University. She also trained as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner, or SANE. As a registered nurse, she has completed additional education and training to provide comprehensive health care to survivors of sexual assault.
She and her husband Tony have an active lifestyle with five children, three sons and two daughters. They enjoy following their kids’ sporting activities, traveling, and spending time with their two dogs. Lindsey has a special connection to women’s health in Wyandotte County as her mom was born at the original Providence hospital.
