Dr. Mechell Duran

Dr. Mechell Duran, DNP, APRN, FNP-C, CDCES, BC-ADM, NBC-HWC, LCCE is a trauma-informed pregnancy health coach, diabetes specialist, and a Lamaze certified childbirth educator. She has over fifteen years of healthcare experience as a nurse and family nurse practitioner. She is the owner of Sugar Bump Coach, a community where women with Gestational Diabetes can be inspired and informed with recipe ideas and evidence-based information from pregnancy to the 4th trimester. As a person with Sickle Cell Anemia, she personally understands the issues surrounding implicit biases and healthcare disparities as she does advocacy work with the Sickle Cell community, a population who has been cited frequently in research to experience health inequity because of implicit biases, stereotypes, and discrimination. She has also suffered the loss of her sister from preeclampsia, a pregnancy complication that disproportionately affects black women. She resides in South, Florida with her husband, their 4-year-old son, and two furry children, sugar and brownie. In Dr. Duran’s spare time she enjoys cooking, making aromatherapy recipes, journaling, and attending her local church.
