Christina T. Echternach, CNM, FNP, MSN

  • Certified Nurse Midwife
  • Peterkort South
Phone Number: (503) 292-3577

Christina was born in Hawaii but spent most of her childhood in Oregon and Washington. She grew up surrounded by strong women that celebrated and embraced their femininity, which she believes influenced her choice of midwifery—a profession that embodies and advances those ideals. She attended Lewis & Clark College in Portland for her bachelor’s degree in Hispanic studies. After graduating, Christina worked as an advocate for victims of sexual assault and violence. This led her to pursue midwifery where she believed she could have a more tangible impact on the health and wellbeing of women. Christina received her master’s degree in nursing from Vanderbilt University in Tennessee with a double focus in nurse-midwifery and family nursing. She is board certified in both specialties.  

Christina enjoys building connections with women and their families. Her goal is for every woman to be an informed advocate for her own health and looks for opportunities to increase this ability among her patients through education. She is particularly interested in group prenatal care and childbirth education and how they might improve outcomes for women. 

Christina enjoys cooking with friends and family, as well as yoga, rock climbing, mountain biking and skiing. She and her dog Leroy love long walks and hikes—and just curling up with a good book!
