The Blue Spruce Team

Ronya Legge Konecny, CNM APRN

Hello and thank you for visiting our website! My name is Ronya and I am the owner and Director of Midwifery at Blue Spruce Birth & Wellness. I have been a perinatal registered nurse (RN) for over 10 years and a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) for two years. I founded Blue Spruce Birth & Wellness in the Spring of 2019 in hopes to offer the Northern Colorado (NoCO) community an individualized option for holistic, evidence-based women’s healthcare and healthy, low-risk maternity care with minimal intervention. As an Advanced Practice Provider, I love educating, serving, and caring for women in body, mind, and spirit throughout life’s many stages.

I have a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Kinesiology from the University of Colorado at Boulder, a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, and a Master of Science in Nurse Midwifery (MSN) from Frontier Nursing University in Kentucky. I am currently working toward a dual certification in Psychiatric-Mental Health which will earn me the designation of Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) in 2022. I am passionate about maternal mental health and the effects of psychological distress on both mother and baby. Needless to say, I am a lover of health sciences and a life-long learner!

My most important role is as a mother. My son is my “muse” because his pregnancy and birth launched my passions. I am a scientist, artist, and avid “do-it-yourselfer.” As a Colorado native, I enjoy camping, hiking, snowshoeing, and 4-wheeling with the family. 

Allison DeHart, CNM APRN

I’m Allie! One of my favorite expressions is, “Midwives have skilled hands and know how to sit on them.” I believe birth is not a pathology, but a normal life event that almost always works just fine without any assistance. My role as a midwife is to be there if you or your baby need a little help during these powerful hours, and to gently, lovingly, and skillfully support your family as you go through an immensely important rite of passage. However, midwifery doesn’t just mean catching babies. It’s deeply rooted in integrative medicine, community building, activism, tradition, feminism, and sustainability. It can be a tool for social, reproductive, and racial justice. It shows that there can be a better way of doing the first thing we all do in this world: be born.

I earned a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Anthropology and French in 2009. After which, I spent time traveling and became enamoured with midwifery outside the United States. I came back to the US with a clear intention and received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from the University of Texas at Houston in 2014. In 2017 I gave birth at home (attended by a CNM) to my first child. It was a transformative experience, and made me realize how powerful, memorable, and deeply personal birth can be. In 2018 I began my midwifery studies at Frontier Nursing University, and in 2020, three months after giving birth to my second child at home (attended by Ronya!) I finished my Masters of Science in Nurse-Midwifery (MSN).

In my free time I bake, garden, write long-winded thoughts about birth, and spend time with my two vibrant children, two lazy cats, and one slightly outrageous husband.

Jennifer Foltz, CPM & Birth Assistant

Hello, my name is Jenn and I was born and raised in Colorado. My husband, Steven, and I have been married for 18 years. I’m a mother of five, two through international adoption. I gave birth to my three boys at home and am passionate about midwifery care! 

My passion began in 2000 when I attended midwifery school in the Philippines. I lived there for a year and a half as a midwifery student and attended hundreds of births. I fell in love with the people and with my studies. My heart is to come alongside women in their special time of pregnancy and birth and provide them with the support and care they deserve.

I received my midwifery registration in Colorado in 2002 and worked with another midwife for 6 months until I got married and moved to California with my husband. We lived in Southern California for 10 years. During this time, I assisted another midwife until we moved back to Colorado. In 2016 I began assisting midwives in Northern Colorado and continue to do this today. I love working alongside fellow midwives, like Ronya, who share my feelings for midwifery.

I am blessed to have a family who is very supportive of my role as a midwife. Some of the ways I enjoy relaxing include spending time with them, hiking, bike riding, watching movies, reading, and knitting

Kathryn Divis, RN & Birth Assistant

Hi! I’m Katie, another Colorado native. I currently live in Windsor with my husband and two dachshunds, Lenny and Lou Lou.

I graduated in 2011 with my associate’s degree in nursing (ADN) from Gillette College in Wyoming and am currently working toward a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from the University of Wyoming. As a registered nurse (RN), I have worked in family medicine and psychiatry. I especially enjoyed working with pediatric patients, which has led me to where I am today.

Coming from a medical background, I always assumed the best place to have a baby was the hospital. After attending my sister’s home births, those experiences showed me that birthing out of the hospital was not only safe for low-risk pregnancy but involved far less intervention. I appreciate that homebirth provides a more intimate and less stressful environment for not only mom and baby, but the whole family. I’m happy to be part of such memorable moments and I love the new babies I get to meet!

Outside of assisting at births and studying nursing, I enjoy spending time with my husband and family, exercising, hiking, camping, and taking care of my dachshunds.

Treanna Wade, RN & Birth Assistant

Hi, my name is Treanna and I’m a registered nurse (RN) and certified labor doula. I am excited to be serving the NoCO birth community as a RN and birth assistant for Blue Spruce Birth & Wellness!

I have been involved in birthwork for almost a decade and have a passion for parental and personal empowerment. I have served the birth community in Northern Colorado (NoCO) through a variety of means from hosting a pregnancy and postpartum retreat in Estes Park to serving on the board of the Northern Colorado Doula Association (NCDA). I also run the Accessible Birth Connection as a way to connect low income families with doulas and, as someone who identifies as queer, fervently supports birth equity.

Education is something that I hold dear. I recently graduated from Front Range Community College with my associate’s degree in nursing (ADN) and I am currently attending the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs to complete a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). I have also completed courses in childbirth education, healing touch, acupressure, labor comfort measures, and bereavement; and hold certifications as a midwifery assistant through The Farm Midwifery Center and a Rebozo Labor Comfort Measures Instructor through Gena Kirby. My goals include becoming a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) and serving the community from a provider’s perspective.

I am a mother to three amazing children who I love to take on movie dates or to get tea and pedicures. My favorite way to spend family time is getting a long weekend away to go camping or more attainably, going on evening walks around the neighborhood after dinner.
