A Kansas City native, Laurie Rodenberg, CNM, MSN, offers 30 years of experience
in labor and delivery and women’s health care. After earning her
nursing degree at Rockford Memorial Hospital School of Nursing, she worked
as a Labor and Delivery nurse for 24 years, with a specialty in high-risk
postpartum care and managing home visits with high-risk moms and families.
Ms. Rodenberg earned an MS in Nursing at Chamberlain College in St. Louis,
then served as an adjunct professor of obstetrical nursing. In 2016, she
realized her dream to become a certified nurse midwife, graduating from
Frontier Nursing University.
Midwifery work is “my passion and calling,” she says. “My
desire is to empower and support women in having the birth experience
they desire with a strong emphasis on shared decision-making.” She
also enjoys supporting women's holistic wellness as well as family
planning, or contraception.
Mom to three grown children, Ms. Rodenberg’s favorite free-time pursuits
include meditation, yoga, hiking, and photography. “I have always
loved Colorado and the Rocky Mountains,” she says. “I am very
excited that I can now experience all this beautiful state has to offer.”
