Veronica Curran is our Adult Nurse Practitioner providing holistic well woman care to women of all ages and stages in life.
I obtained my graduate degree from the University of Colorado and undergraduate degree from The College of New Jersey. Prior to joining the Midwives of New Jersey, I worked as an Acute Care ICU nurse and as a Primary Care Provider.
I have 4 children, all of which were brought into this world with the assistance of Midwives, in the water! I have a strong desire to connect with women and mothers at all stages of life as each stage has its own unique challenges and attributes.
After my first child, Saoirse, was born, she was not able to breastfeed. I spent my first 5 weeks as a mother, attempting to get her to latch, “failing”, then pumping, feeding, and repeating. This experience was very isolating and challenging to me as a new mom. After 5 weeks, she finally figured at feeding at the breast and she went on to breastfeed for 18 months.
When I had my second child, Declan, I realized just how challenging it was to manage the emotions and demands of two children. Although love is multiplied, time and attention are divided.
I gave birth to my third and fourth children with the Midwives of NJ. My third, Liam, was born very gently in the water at 10 lbs, 8 oz. It was after this transformative experience that I knew I needed to be part of what we do here at the Midwives of NJ. My last child, Seamus, was born in 2019 at home after a disciplined diet regimen change from my previous pregnancies, and he was only 7 lbs.
I joined the Midwives of New Jersey as the holistic gynecologist for the practice. I have a special interest in Functional Medicine and I am a member of the Institute of Functional Medicine. I prefer to blend my western medicine training with Functional Medicine which looks for and treats the root cause of a problem rather than medicating the symptoms of illness. I co-developed the “How To Make A Baby” pre-conception program. I use my experiences to connect to other moms as one of our MotherCare facilitators. I also provide Thermography services.
I am available for consults regarding multiple women’s issues including preconception, fatigue, postpartum depression, gut health, birth control counseling and well-woman care. I love working with the Midwives of New Jersey providing full-scope, holistic care to women of all ages.
I currently live in Blairstown with my husband and children. In my spare time, I will take any opportunity to be outside in nature with my amazing family!
