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 core principles rest first on doing no harm, which goes hand in hand with sanctity of life and serving our community, especially the poor and most vulnerable of our neighbors.  Partnering with people, businesses, and services in the region and beyond, we welcome patients in financial difficulties and crisis pregnancies, treating each with medical excellence, human respect, and tender care. Combined, our doctors have decades of medical expertise, and should there be a difference in your treatment, please bring your concern to the doctor for discussion.

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.

Our Mission
We pledge to you, our patient, that we will provide you with quality medical care, in a pro-life and pro-family environment, treating you (and your family) with the dignity and respect that you deserve as a human person. All are welcome here regardless of race, religion or financial status based upon the availability of our physicians. We participate in many insurance plans along with Medicare and Medicaid. If you do not have insurance or if your procedure is not covered by your insurance, for obstetric care, our staff will arrange a payment plan for you prior to your appointment. We pledge that we will respect your fertility as a natural and healthy aspect of personhood, something to be treasured and protected. We educate our patients about the language of their bodily signs of fertility and infertility. When appropriate, prayer is utilized as a tool to participate in the power, mercy and love of the Divine Healer. We specialize in assisting women in their fertility; not suppressing it. As a policy of the practice, birth control for contraceptive purposes, abortions, or abortion inducers will not be dispensed or recommended. Tepeyac Family Center believes that the family is the central building block of our society. We recognize the need to support the family structure by upholding conventional morals in all sexual orientation problems. In addition, we affirm your children in their dignity as temples of the Holy Spirit, encourage healthy opportunities in physical, emotional and spiritual growth. With this special emphasis as a basis, your children will be guided to proactively resist smoking, alcohol, drugs, and sexual experimentation outside of marriage. Your family will learn to approach these activities—and their potential hazards—from a moral perspective. And you will learn to handle associated problems from a spirit of loving assistance, without provoking undue pain or guilt.
