Laurie Rodenberg, CNM, MSN, offers over 30 years of experience in labor and delivery and women's health care. As a midwife, Laurie follows a mind-body approach to women's health care and enjoys providing full-scope midwifery care to women of all ages. She believes women are stronger than they know. Her goal is to empower those she cares for to have the birth experience they desire, with a strong emphasis on shared decision-making. She is conversant in Spanish and enjoys working with culturally diverse moms and families.
She was a labor and delivery nurse in the Kansas City area for 24 years before realizing her dream of becoming a certified nurse midwife by earning a master's degree with a midwifery emphasis. Prior to joining Valley Medical Center, she worked in a midwifery practice in Boulder, Colorado. Laurie grew up in the Kansas City area and has three grown children. She enjoys meditation, yoga, hiking and nature photography. She is very excited to be here in the Seattle area and explore all the beauty the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
