Courtney Hein, CNM has been a labor and birth nurse for the past ten years, spending the past two years in a community birth setting. She has been a fierce advocate for evidence-based care and shared decision-making since the birth of her first son while in nursing school.
She graduated from Frontier Nursing University, earning a master’s degree in nursing. During her clinical training, she spent time with a women’s health nurse practitioner gaining gyn knowledge and experience. The remainder of her training was with Avista Women’s Care! Courtney was able to be a part of 40 births during her time with AWC and had a 5% primary cesarean rate and 100% VBAC success rate. She is passionate about closing the gap of racial health disparities, improving maternal and infant mortality rates, and more supportive postpartum care. She loves watching women discover how strong they are through birth.
Courtney moved to Colorado in 2002 from Illinois. She now lives in Longmont with her husband, two kids, and two dogs. She enjoys paddleboarding, hiking, and relaxing with her family.
