About Canyon Midwifery
Canyon Midwifery is the private practice of Connie Garcia CNM, MSN.
Connie has a Masters of Science degree in Nursing with a specialty in Midwifery from the Frontier Nursing University (formerly known as the Frontier School of Nurse-Midwifery).She has been in practice here in the greater Phoenix area for nearly 15 years, and has helped more than 2400 women birth their babies.
Connie has supported out-of hospital and natural birth for the past 36 years! She herself birthed all five of children naturally! Two were born in a hospital, one in a freestanding birth center, and the last two were born at home. She has seven grandchildren so far and they were also born naturally! Two were born in hospitals, one at home and four in a freestanding birth center. She knows full well the incredible victory of un-medicated birth, in that moment that a woman knows exactly what she has just accomplished! A hard journey of labor and birth with a priceless reward! That’s the goal! A healthy mommy and baby and an intimate empowering experience for the woman and her family as they travel that journey together!
Connie was also a childbirth educator for 8 years, believing that the most prepared parents are the ones who will succeed in reaching the goal of un-medicated birth. Prenatal education is vital for women and their babies to be the healthiest possible and for those same women to have the tools they need to cope with the marathon called labor! As you proceed throughout your prenatal care, you will find much of that education to be in integral part of each visit.
Canyon Midwifery was founded to make this experience available to all women who desire it and are appropriate candidates for out-of-hospital birth. Appropriateness for home birth is also a top priority for Connie. In order to birth safely at home, a woman must be willing to undergo traditional prenatal testing and prenatal care to assure that she and her baby are as low-risk as possible before beginning labor at home. If there are any complications, the woman and/or her baby will be transported to the closest hospital for further care.
Canyon Midwifery is here to inspire you, educate you, support you, and love you through one of the most intimate and personal experiences of your life!
