Shelley Russell, ARNP & CNM

Certified nurse-midwife with over three decades of experience

Gainesville Nurse Practitioner, Shelley Russell

Shelley joined the All About Women team in early 2007 with almost 20 years of nursing experience. She spent her early career as a labor and delivery nurse right here at North Florida Regional Medical Center. She graduated from the University of Florida in 2006 with a Master of Science in Nursing. She's a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) and an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP).

Shelley and Dr. Agrios have known each other for more than 20 years and worked many years together in the Labor and Delivery ward of NFRMC. Shelley is passionate about women's health, childbirth education and breastfeeding.

In her free time, Shelley enjoys attending UF sporting events and spending time with her three children. She's an avid Gator fan and enjoys spending time at dog shows.

Shelley Russell quoted in "Getting Ready for Breastfeeding",
Giggle Magazine (Aug/Sept 2012 issue):

Most women can breastfeed successfully. If you nurse your baby when he wants to eat, and not on a schedule, your body will adjust and make the right amount of milk. Breastfeeding also allows you some downtime to relax and bond with your child.

From Shelley's Desk
