My name is Tiffany Jorgenson and I am a certified nurse-midwife with a passion for women and home birth! I learned about home birth as a young teen when a family whose children I cared for chose to have their second baby at home. They had a wonderful experience and encouraged me to take this route since they knew how passionate I was about being a labor and delivery nurse and caring for mothers and babies. While in my bachelors, I discovered there was a nurse midwife track I could take in order to practice midwifery where I could have the freedom to practice at home, in a freestanding birth center or in a hospital and I knew this was the right path for me!
I graduated from Beth-El College of Nursing at UCCS and began my nursing career at Memorial Hospital. After serving just under a year on a medical/surgical unit, I was able to transfer to my dream job on the labor and delivery unit! I worked on the labor and delivery unit for 2 ½ years and realized that the practice I had to maintain at the hospital was in conflict with what I believed normal, natural birth to be. I wanted to do something different that gave me the freedom to practice independently and the ability to deliver clients in their homes, so I decided to obtain my masters! I completed my Master’s in Science Nursing with a specialty in Midwifery at Frontier Nursing University and have not looked back! I left my job as an RN at the hospital right before I began my clinical rotation. I completed my clinicals at Evans Army Community Hospital (EACH) and it was here that I shadowed some of the most evidenced-based, compassionate nurse-midwives I have ever met! I received a quality education and training with Frontier and EACH and am ready to bring this level of practice and knowledge to the home birth community in Colorado Springs! I have assisted with over 150 deliveries and delivered over 60 babies in my nursing and midwife career. I believe that birth is normal until proven otherwise and believe that birth can be trusted and respected in low risk women!
