From an early age, Liliana knew that she wanted to help empower birthing people through their antenatal, labor, and postpartum experiences. Her first introduction to midwifery was in 2011 when she observed her first birth in a hospital as nurse-midwives worked in a collaborative practice with the OBGYNs. That sparked her desire to learn more about midwifery and more holistic ways of women’s health care.
A whole new world opened up. In 2015, Liliana enrolled in the Via Vita School of Midwifery to pursue becoming a Midwife. The same year, she and her partner moved from their snowy hometown of Anchorage, Alaska, to the warmth and sunshine of Mesa, Arizona.
Liliana finished with Via Vita in early 2017. She then began working on completing her clinical experience and requirements for PEP through the North American Registry of Midwives to become a Certified Professional Midwife and Licensed Midwife (CPM, LM). Throughout her apprenticeship, she had the privilege of working as a doula and birth assistant under many wonderful homebirth midwives, serving over 200 homebirth families across the Phoenix metro area and a few rural deliveries in northern Arizona.
In early December of 2021, Liliana finished all of her clinical requirements for PEP and has since been preparing vigorously for the NARM exam. She was very excited when the opportunity came to join our team and looks forward to supporting and empowering birthing people and their families during their time with Blossom.
Liliana enjoys spending time with her partner Thomas and their two cats during her downtime. She does various forms of art, such as acrylic painting and pottery, and finds it a great way to express herself. She also loves getting out into nature, going camping, or going to a beach whenever possible.
