Andrea Bergeleen, LM, CPM
Andrea Bergeleen is a California Licensed Midwife and Certified Professional Midwife. She graduated from Nizhoni Institute of Midwifery in 2018. After being a midwifery student at San Diego Midwives for two years, she joined the practice as a licensed midwife in July 2019.
Andrea was born and raised in San Diego and originally wanted to be a pediatrician because she always enjoyed working with children and found the health field intriguing.
While attending college, she changed my career path and decided to become an elementary school teacher. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies, a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, and Masters in The Art of Teaching from National University.
After earning her Multiple-Subject Teaching Credential she and her husband started a family and she decided to stay home and raise her three children.
Throughout the years she has tutored all ages of students in a variety of subjects. As her children got older, she realized that she still had a passion for the health field.
After extensive research, she decided that she belonged in midwifery. She became a midwife because she loves helping people. She is fascinated with how the body works and the miracle of creating a new life. One day she would like to educate, support and work with pregnant teenagers.
After the births of my children I started looking at more natural approaches to things in life. Through researching I discovered that there are different ways that women can experience birth, that they do have the option for birthing outside of the walls of a hospital. I always knew that pregnancy and birth were a natural part of life and enjoyed being a part of my friends’ journeys into parenthood. From an early age I had been fascinated by the health field and found that I can help women and babies by becoming a midwife. I want to support and care for women of all ages and also help them discover their inner strength in pregnancy and birth.
