Karrian Benejan, CNM

Nurse midwife at BOGG since 2019; strong experience in healthcare since 2006.

Appointments available in Springfield

 

Karrian Benejan’s interest in healthcare began early in life well before formal nursing or midwifery training, when the fundamental elements of nurse midwifery became second nature through learning from her grandmother, who was also a midwife. Karrian’s early interest in supporting women through all stages of life has driven her education, career choices and professional accomplishments. Karrian earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. She gained experience in nursing and effective patient care through positions as a Certified Nursing Assistant, Student Nurse Associate, and Registered Nurse in Cardiac Telemetry and Surgery. After developing valuable hands-on nursing skills in collaborative environments, Karrian went on to earn her Master of Science degree and her Certificate in Nurse Midwifery from Philadelphia University/Jefferson University and Baystate Medical respectively.  

Receiving her midwifery education in the greater Springfield area, Karrian established an excellent foundation for continuing her midwifery career in the Pioneer Valley. Providing a supportive environment that takes into consideration patient needs, including socioeconomic challenges, is important to Karrian. Her drive in these areas has developed through her past clinical experience working with the Hampden County Women’s Correctional Center, and also her volunteer work with UMASS Medical Reserve Corps, the “Health Care Project” serving underprivileged residents in the Northampton area, and with Mustard Seed Missions, providing medical care in impoverished rural Haitian communities. Karrian’s warm personality, effective communication skills, and years of experience in nursing all contribute to the outstanding care that she provides.  

"I am committed to providing outstanding care where women feel comfortable, informed, and confident in navigating their health care choices. In working toward that end, I hope that the women I serve will be equipped and empowered to enjoy their health, especially the joy of pregnancy and childbirth."

Outside of her career, Karrian enjoys hiking, running, dancing and spending time with family and friends.
