Eileen Nyholt believes in the benefit of complementary therapies before, during and after pregnancy and birth. She is a certified massage therapist and a yoga instructor and she incorporates this expertise into the care she provides for women. She knows from experience the benefits of massage during labor to help ease pain and has taught several classes on adult and infant massage.
Eileen brings a broad health care background and unique experiences to her role as a midwife. She has studied in Africa as well as several sites in Wisconsin and spent almost 10 years as a registered nurse for the birth center at Aurora Sinai Medical Center.
Eileen believes that birth is an everyday miracle in a woman's life and she entered midwifery because she enjoys being part of the beautiful process of pregnancy, birth and self discovery. She provides care for women in all phases of life and views her relationship with clients as a partnership.
Eileen enjoys walks along the Milwaukee River, music, dancing, singing and spending time with her daughter.
