About Karen Perdion, MSN, CNM
Karen Perdion, MSN, is a certified nurse-midwife (CNM) who provides family-centered maternity care, along with well-woman care, family planning and other services. She delivers babies in our holistic, in-hospital birth center or in the traditional labor and delivery environment, depending on the desires and needs of her patients.
As a certified nurse-midwife, Ms. Perdion is able to follow her patients through their entire pregnancy, rather than the short time she sees them as a labor and delivery nurse. She enjoys getting to know her patients and feels privileged to share in one of the most important times of their lives. Ms. Perdion became certified nurse-midwife because she felt she could empower women to make decisions about their health care during pregnancy and beyond.
