Tepeyac's New Midwife
Kim Terhune has been a nurse for many years and has worked in nearly every setting in the hospital. Kim has always loved working with women and their families. She received her undergraduate degree from Brunswick College in Brunswick, Georgia. Later she obtained her BSN from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. After her children were born, Kim decided to return to school to pursue advanced nursing education at Virginia Commonwealth University to become a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner. She graduated in 2011 and has been working as a Nurse Practitioner in obstetrics and gynecology since then. Kim enjoyed the clinical aspects of obstetrics so much that she went to Shenandoah University to receive a post Master’s certificate in Midwifery in 2012.
Kim loves working with both women and their families during the journey of pregnancy and labor and delivery. She also enjoys caring for women in the office for annual exams and helping with other issues they may face.
Kim Terhune is married and a mother of five children and a grandmother to one special boy. She lives in Reston, Virginia and enjoys reading, knitting and crocheting and spending time with her family. We are delighted to welcome Kim Terhune to our Tepeyac family starting August 1, 2016.

Visions and Values
There is Something More Than Medicine™ at Tepeyac Family Center.
Using the best modern medicine can provide, we care for the whole person — body, mind, and spirit — with the healing love of Christ as our model and guide. We provide integrated healthcare for women. We pray for our patients and, when appropriate, with them.
We view life as a gift, and pregnancy and fertility as healthy blessings, not diseases. If you are looking for quality, life-affirming, reproductive medical care in a practice other than abortion/family planning centers, we welcome you. As physicians, we aggressively preserve life and treat disease. In that light, we do not perform or refer for abortions, and only use hormones as methods of treating illness. We educate patients, including adolescent young women, about their well-being, fertility, cycles, and reproductive health that foster healthy families and individuals.
When presented with a child who is deathly ill prior to birth and not expected to live very long, we walk alongside parents by supporting them in their grief and, when possible, treating the child’s sickness or pain. Our perinatal hospice program provides a welcome alternative to parents who wish to maximize the precious time with their very sick baby.
Our desire is to become an integrated ‘family center’ with pediatricians, family physicians, and internists on staff or closely associated with us in our mission of serving the community, while mentoring the next generation of healthcare professionals and giving to both patients and providers alike the hope and realization of something more than medicine at Tepeyac Family Center, LLC.
Medicine is an act of mercy, a way that God enacts his healing in the world. Merciful Medicine respects the dignity of the human person at all stages.
We believe God calls us to care for those in need, whether spiritual, physical, emotional, or financial. We offer a variety of assistance to pregnant women lacking resources.
We believe that Christ is the ultimate healer and the center of all our relationships: parent/child; mother/father; doctor/patient. We honor the whole person: body, mind, and spirit.
