Annie Sorensen CNM-BC, WHNP
Annie is a board certified nurse-midwife and certified women's health nurse practitioner, graduate of the University pf Pennsylvania. As a native Nashvillian and currently, an East Nashvillian, Annie is excited to work closely with the women and families in her community. Annie respects pregnancy and birth as normal parts of a woman’s life cycle (if she so chooses). It is potentially a very empowering time as women learn to ask questions, seek knowledge and make decisions that affect her and her family’s health. Annie’s goal is to make that experience as empowering and rewarding as possible. Midwife means “with woman”. The reason Annie decided to pursue midwifery is because she saw the difference it makes to have a midwife be truly with the woman as she facilitates the transition into parenthood by engaging her to be an active participant in her and her family’s healthcare decisions. Annie is excited to walk through this wonderful journey with the women and families of middle Tennessee.
