Abrie Koupal, CNM,MSN


Certified Nurse-Midwife Abrie Koupal attended her first birth in 2009 as a friend's support person and the experience changed her forever. Leaving a former career in cross-cultural education, Abrie pursued her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Regis University in Denver, CO, and then completed her Master of Science in Nursing at Frontier Nursing University in Hyden, KY.

She had the honor of being The Birth Center of Boulder's first midwifery student in 2015 and was brought on as a full scope nurse-midwife after completing her studies at the end of that year. Abrie has not only guided hundreds of birth center families through their individual journeys but also birthed both of her children at the center, with steadfast support from her midwife sisters. 

When not midwifing, teaching The Birth Center of Boulder’s classes or developing digital content for the birth center's smartphone app, she is likely to be found tucked away in the mountains with her backcountry ski guide entrepreneur husband, son and daughter, and rambunctious mutt.
