Betsy Smith, CNM (retired)

Clinical Director

Childbirth Educator 

I have over 22 years’ experience as a Certified Nurse Midwife and 50 years as a nurse. I retired from Della Vita Midwifery last year. My professional goal is to assist women and partners in a mindful birthing

experience and provide a gentle atmosphere for the miracle of birth. I worked as a skilled guide through

the labor and birth and postpartum experience. I bring to the journey my experience and training and all

the wisdom I have acquired through the years from my clients. I use a holistic approach that includes

hypnosis, progressive relaxation, massage and acupressure and Calm Birth Meditation. I encourage

dance and/or movement throughout pregnancy and birth.

A little about me

Outside of work I enjoy creating glass fusion art and spending time with animals. We have a new puppy and

two older cats. I love dancing, when able, to any genre of music and embracing my spirituality. I have a

new grandson and recently moved to Mount Vista area with my daughter and son-in-law. Words to live

by are: be open to all of life's lessons; albeit challenging or easy, and experience every moment as if it is

your only moment.
