Hello Medical Mom of NICU!

Tanisha Jaleel IllustrationMedicalMoms.png

My name is Tanisha Burke-Wormley. I help Medical Moms of NICU worldwide manage caregiving for their medically-complexed miracle during the NICU and after the NICU journey.


My welcome to motherhood journey came with many twists and turns after experiencing a previous miscarriage. My NICU graduate of Kidney Disease, Jaleel, was discharged from the NICU with mass medications, a feeding tube pump, dialysis supplies, dialysis machine, and dressing supplies to name a few. I loss myself advocating for my NICU miracle in the hospital, and caregiving around the clock after hospital discharge. I essentially became a “Medical Mom of NICU.” 

 It took 4 years to rediscover myself spiritually, develop a healthy self care routine, and overcome the postpartum depression struggles of NICU trauma and juggling pandemic parenting 2 under 2 after recurring miscarriages. Thanks to renewing my relationship with Jesus Christ, I rediscovered that these medical challenges were birthing new passion projects that would help bring JOY after sorrow to NICU Moms worldwide.


Today, I share Medical Mom Motivation that there is purpose after pain every MMONday aka Medical Mom of NICU Day on Medical Moms of NICU Podcast and Thankful Thursdays on all social media platforms.
