Meet the Midwife: Kim Taylor, CNM
Kim is a native of the Prattville/Billingsley area in Alabama. She completed a bachelor's degree in nursing at Troy University in 2013 and then served as an officer in the U.S. Army Nurse Corps as a Labor & Delivery RN where she worked on high-volume/high-acuity units and obtained the Inpatient Obstetric Nursing (RNC-OB) certification.
In 2018, she graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a degree in Nurse Midwifery and became a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM). She worked as a hospital-based midwife for a busy OB/GYN practice in Washington state, gaining experience with diverse populations, managing a variety of clinical situations, and working closely/collaboratively with the home-birth community.
In 2022, she moved to Alabama and began the process of obtaining licensure as a Certified Professional Midwife through the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM) and opening her own home-birth practice.
She is set to finish a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Degree from Troy University in December 2023.
Kim has had the privilege of being a midwife at close to 400 births within the home, birth center, and hospital settings (and hundreds more as a Labor & Delivery RN).
