NANCY GREENWOOD, LM, CPM
I came to midwifery from my own birth experiences and began attending births in 1991 as a home birth apprentice in Ontario and Québec, prior to legalization. In 1997 I graduated with distinction from Canada’s Ryerson University 4 year Bachelor of Health Sciences, Midwifery Program, after midwifery became legal.
I practiced as a Registered Midwife in Ontario and Québec offering home, hospital and birth center births (woman’s choice) from 1997 until 2014, with the same wonderful ‘old babe’ midwives I apprenticed and trained with. I became accredited by the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM) and the California Medical Board in 2018 after completing California-based requirements.
As a midwife for almost 30 years, I have been incredibly blessed to have attended hundreds of women and their families on their childbirth journey, gathering experience, witnessing and guiding women through pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum. The grace, dignity and strength women find to give birth still amazes me!
Women and their birth experiences have been my teachers as much as I have guided and taught them. I am passionate about honoring and supporting women, their choices and their birth journey.
