Karen Crouse MSN, CNM,  LCCE Clinical

Godís grace of many life experiences and contacts with many great individuals has led me to where I am today. I knew that Midwifery was the path for me after countless connections I have made with women and their families in preparation for birth and during birth.

I started my career in the field of nursing after the birth of my second child. I received an Associate Degree of Nursing in 1992, a BSN in 1996 from Carlow University, a Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Phoenix in 2004 and Midwifery Certification from the Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing in 2008.

Since 1992 I have worked as a nurse in a variety of settings and specialties which includes: adult health, child health, college nursing instructor in maternal child health, and CPR instructor. I have gained experience caring for low risk and high risk pregnant women during my time as a Labor and Delivery Nurse since 1995 in a variety of settings. I am also a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator who has educated many women and men on the normalcy of birth and of their options for the birth they desire.

I am excited to start my career as a Midwife with Birth Care and the people of this community. My mission is to help women and families explore their personal choices in birth and to empower women to realize their full potential as well as their own inherent abilities through birth.

I am married and have 2 grown children, a daughter and a son. My husband of 29 years will be joining me as we make a new start in the Lancaster community
