Nuria Nelkin, Certified Nurse Midwife (Providence Midwifery), was originally born and raised in a small town in East Tennessee in the foothills of the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains.
Finding her calling was a journey. At age 18, she followed her love of music with a Bachelor’s of Arts in General Music as a vocalist at Berea College. With age and life experience, she realized her joy was in the serving and care of others and found nursing, completing her Bachelors of Science in Nursing at the University of Tennessee.
She was immediately drawn to pregnancy and birth during her education and became pregnant with her first child at the end of nursing school. By happenstance, she found herself in the care of midwives and fell in love with the partnership of care that she received in that setting.
After working as a nurse for several years and experiencing the pregnancy and birth of her second child, she knew pursuing a career in midwifery was her calling and dream, completing her MSN in Nurse-Midwifery at Frontier Nursing University.Nuria started her midwifery career in a small practice in South Atlanta providing pregnancy and postpartum care, annual well woman visits, gynecologic visits, birth control counseling, and welcoming babies into the world!
Nuria believes that pregnancy and childbirth is one of the most amazing and life changing experiences in a woman and her family’s life. She feels truly humbled and honored to play a role in guiding and educating during that profound transition. She is especially excited to be in this role at Providence Women’s Healthcare and North Fulton Hospital, both environment’s that truly respect the roles of education, partnership in care, and personal autonomy.Nuria is also a wife and mother of two young, active boys. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends, reading, and exercising.
