A short history of Desert Blossom

Desert Blossom started as a labor of love in Sierra Vista in 2014. After graduation, Misty Decker became the first Certified Nurse Midwife to be credentialed at the then local hospital, Sierra Vista Regional Health Care Center. After gaining experience working in a busy medical practice, Misty felt drawn to provide midwifery modeled care in a friendly, patient focused setting. Desert Blossom was the fruition of that endeavor. From a few patients and humble beginnings, Desert Blossom quickly grew into busy, premier midwifery service. To meet the growing demand for midwifery care and services, Desert Blossom expanded in 2017, adding additional midwives, a maternal fetal medicine physician, and in-house ultrasound services. Today, Desert Blossom offers high quality, evidence based care at two locations in Tucson and Sierra Vista.
