About the Speaker:

Sheila Dedrick knew she found her niche working with mothers and babies from her first clinical rotation in Obstetrics in nursing school. She became an RN at the age of 20 and moved to the Maternal Child department as soon as she could. She has continued for 40 years, never leaving her passion, working in labor and delivery, mother-baby, and high-risk antepartum. Currently she is the Manager of the New Parent Resource Center at Community Memorial Hospital which she opened and where she combines her expertise in lactation and maternity with her passion for teaching. She developed a comprehensive set of courses and established an outpatient lactation support program where over 1400 private consultations are done each year. She was instrumental in the CMH receiving their Baby Friendly designation.  She graduated from Cal State Dominguez Hills with both her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Nursing as a Nurse Educator. She is an IBCLC and Certified Childbirth Educator. She was honored with the Liquid Gold Award from the Breastfeeding Coalition of Ventura County and was named the Hospital Hero for Ventura County by the National Health Foundation.  She has been married to her husband Craig for over 40 years and is a long- time resident of Oak View, CA.  Sheila is proudly the mother of two breastfed daughters and the grandmother of two breastfed grandchildren.
