Connie George, CNM, MS graduated from the University of Colorado School of Nursing as a Cum Laude in 1999 and earned a Master of Science in Nursing in 2004. She joined the certified nurse-midwives in January 2005. She embraced the concept of Centering Pregnancy™ care and facilitates Centering groups.
Connie took the lead role in establishing a community outreach clinic in North Denver at Clinica Tepeyac. Connie's commitment to our Spanish speaking community led her to seek a three-week Spanish immersion experience in Mexico in November 2006. Funded by the Saint Joseph Hospital Foundation, this focus on improving her Spanish skills has resulted in a dramatic increase in fluency and greater confidence in working with Spanish speaking women.
Connie states, "Listening to women is a hallmark for certified nurse-midwives and a critical component of my philosophy. All women deserve the experience that they desire for their pregnancy and birth. Education, family centered care and listening are valued in your care."
As a mother, Connie understands what an exciting, yet vulnerable time pregnancy can be. Connie had the benefit of being surrounded by her nurse-midwife partners during both of her pregnancies and both of her children were born at Saint Joseph Hospital – giving it a special place in her heart.
For her patients, Connie says, "Congratulations on this exciting journey of pregnancy and parenting! It is an honor to part of this special time in your life. During prenatal care, one of my favorite ways to be involved is through Centering Pregnancy care. I hope to see you in one of my groups, in OB triage or on that wonderful day of the birth of your baby."
