Dr. Henry spent over a decade in clinical practice as a labor and delivery nurse, a mother/baby nurse, and a nurse-midwife. She began teaching nursing students in 2012 and has taught both undergraduate and graduate students in maternal/child health, midwifery, and transition to professional nursing practice.
Her research investigates Black mothers’ experiences of traumatic grief following the loss of a child to stillbirth, infant death, or child death.
