Candace’s interest in nursing and calling to midwifery started at a young age. Women’s health has always been a passion of hers and it has become a lifelong pursuit to fulfill her dream of becoming a certified nurse midwife. After high school Candace pursued a nursing degree in the Twin Cities. Participating in births under CNM guidance during nursing school and observing prenatal care at Holy-Family Birth center in Texas further strengthened her love and passion for midwifery, ultimately leading her to pursue an advanced degree through Georgetown University.
One month after finishing her Master’s degree, Candace and her husband welcomed their son via waterbirth at a birth center here in the Twin Cities. Drawing from her own birth experience and clinical experiences in the hospital, Candace supports women in choosing the birthing environment that is right for them, whether that is hospital or out-of-hospital birth. Women will remember their births forever; it is truly a life-changing, awe-inspiring event. Candace desires to provide safe care, personalized to the woman’s wishes and desires. It is a wonderful honor to be a part of a woman’s story-from adolescence through her childbearing years, and beyond.
As a certified nurse midwife, Candace strives to provide evidence-based care in a personalized and meaningful way for each unique woman, partnering with her to help her make the best, most informed choice for her care. Her goal is to practice the essence of midwifery, “to be with woman” during all the changes of life, including the transformative childbearing years. Candace wants women to be educated, informed, and ultimately empowered through their pregnancies, childbirth experience, and parenthood. Candace’s interests include natural childbirth, waterbirth, breastfeeding, postpartum care, and self-care including nutrition and exercise.
