Eugenia was born and raised in Peru. She began her professional career as a Veterinarian until moving to the United States.
She is both a Certified Nurse Midwife and a Woman’s Health Nurse Practitioner since 2000, working in both Manhattan and Brooklyn. Eugenia speaks both Spanish and English. She lives and loves Brooklyn and considers herself an adopted Brooklynite.
Eugenia is a strong believer in the midwifery model of care. She believes it is a model that empowers a woman, respects a woman’s choices, encourages her to trust her body and her birth and works with her partner and midwife towards a common goal-a healthy baby, a healthy mother, and a positive birth experience.
