Meet the Midwife
Christa Hansen, CNM, WHNP, MSN, CBC
I am a Certified Nurse Midwife licensed in the state of Arizona, will full prescriptive authority.
I am also a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner. My education is in nursing and midwifery. I graduated from Yavapai College in Nursing and received my Master’s degree from Frontier Nursing University.
I have 5 years experience as a labor and delivery, post partum and nursery nurse. I am nationally certified by the American College of Nurse Midwives Certification Board and I am licensed by the State of Arizona with full prescriber authority. If you are interviewing midwives give me a call, I would like to meet you.
I am the proud mother of four amazing children. I have wanted to be a midwife for almost my whole life. I was born in Austria, Europe and gave birth to three of my children at home, with wonderful midwives caring for me. I believe that women should play an active role in their health care, pregnancy care and birth. I want to create an environment and a relationship where a woman feels supported and comforted based on trust and mutual respect. I believe in personal contact and open communication. In my free time I love to spend time in my garden, hike our wonderful red rocks with my dog Joy, read or enjoy a movie.
