Gengi G. Proteau

Certified Professional Midwife


A member of the home birth community since 1994, Gengi has been serving Connecticut families during pregnancy and childbirth in various capacities since 2000. She began as a childbirth educator and doula, and became a midwifery apprentice in 2004. She attended the Midwives College of Utah and gained her clinical experience through working with several homebirth practices in Connecticut. Being the mother of five fabulous (but not perfect!) children has rounded out her education in helping women prepare for childbirth and embrace motherhood.

Gengi's interests include teaching, hiking, singing and gardening. She loves learning about different  cultures and various walks of life, and is particularly keen on understanding the role of faith and spirituality in personal and family life. She hopes to someday be fluent in Spanish and proficient at the piano.
