Metamorphosis to Mom

Metamorphosis to mom is a place to share content from myself and others with the goal to help those on the path to motherhood feel better prepared for what may come (spoiler alert: it is not all flowers and unicorns even when a much desired baby comes) and to know that they have a supportive community where they can share their feelings and experiences in a place free of judgement. 

About Me


Dr. Jessica Vernon, MD, FACOG

I am a board certified OB/GYN and Clinical Assistant Professor, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at NYU Grossman School of Medicine in New York City.  I am a physician advocate working to decrease healthcare disparities and to bring awareness and better support for women with peripartum mood disorders. But this is not all that I am. I am also a mom, wife, daughter, and friend. My identity is multifaceted and I bring  perspective and experiences from my whole life with me in my mission to help other women along their journey.
