Certified Nurse Midwife, APNP
Hello, I’m Angela Guzzardo, Certified Nurse Midwife. I am so honored to be a part of the midwifery group at Authentic Birth Center - Wellness Collective.
My love of women’s healthcare began during my childhood in Alaska where I was blessed to attend the births of two of my siblings. These experiences helped to guide my journey in becoming a nurse and my passion for women’s health.
I spent the first 10 years of my nursing career working in antepartum, labor and delivery, postpartum, and OB clinic. In 2012, when I became pregnant with my first son, I knew I wanted a more holistic care model than was offered in the hospital setting where I worked. This is what lead me to midwifery care, and after a beautiful home-birth I started the process to become a nurse midwife. Over the next 4 years I earned my Master of Science in Nurse Midwifery from Marquette University and added another little boy to my life.
My goal is to create a partnership with the families I serve –one built on trust and a shared knowledge of physiologic birth and the midwifery model of care. I deeply believe that each person is the creator of their own birth process. No better or worse, just an understanding of personal wants and wishes that, together, I hope we can bring to fruition in a safe and supportive space.
