Victoria K. Sundquist, MSN, CNM
Victoria is passionate about the Midwifery Model of Care and Shared Decision Making. While health care professionals have knowledge about processes, risks, and benefits, she recognizes that each patient is the expert in their own body and their experience, and it is vital that we listen to and hear them and their needs. With a background as a homebirth midwifery apprentice on the East Coast and in Alaska, and as an L&D nurse in Colorado at a community hospital and in an accredited out-of-hospital birth center, she hopes to empower her patients in the clinic and during the perinatal time to make the best choices for their unique situation. She is very passionate about mental health, having experienced significant postpartum depression decades ago when there were no readily available resources. Other passions include complementary and alternative medicine, lactation support, and trauma informed care.
After moving around Europe and all four sides of the United States both as the child of an opera singer and then as a military spouse, Victoria picked Colorado to be her home as a single mom of five in 2010. Now, she and her husband enjoy their blended horde of seven children and a slew of rescue animals including dogs, cats, and turtles. They enjoy gardening and making their yard pollinator and wildlife friendly, supporting their kids in theater productions and artistic endeavors, playing on the lake, cooking, traveling, and enjoying what the four seasons in Colorado have to offer in the great outdoors.
Victoria’s education includes pre-med at Northwestern University, an Accelerated Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing at Regis University, and a Master’s of Science in Nursing in Midwifery at Frontier Nursing University. She participates in the ACNM Task Force addressing Racism in Midwifery Education and in the southwestern division of the Midwives for Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) group.
