Dana Taylor, C.N.M.

A native of North Carolina, Dana worked as a Labor and Delivery nurse for 15 years, attended Old Dominion University as an undergraduate and graduated with honors from Virginia Commonwealth University with her Master’s in Nursing/Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner. While working as Nurse Practitioner, she completed a Post-Master’s degree in Nurse Midwifery at Shenandoah University. Dana is Board Certified as a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner and Certified Nurse Midwife and has additional training in Advanced Fetal Monitoring and Colposcopy.

She enjoys all areas of caring for women whether it is providing care to a young woman for her first well woman exam, helping a woman transition into menopause,
or caring for and educating a woman and her family during pregnancy and childbirth. She finds it an inspiring and awesome privilege to be with a woman during the birth
of her child.

"I am grateful for Dana Taylor’s maternity and women’s wellness care. Dana is caring and compassionate while maintaining objectivity in her advice based on her experience and the latest medical information. She is an excellent listener, thorough, and never rushed during appointments. Dana is patient-dedicated and delivered my son in the early morning hours of her day off. We are approaching our second child’s birth, and my family has full confidence in Dana to safely deliver the baby and manage all aspects of my care. She is everything I could expect of a provider and is among the best I have seen in any medical specialty." -Whitney Riley
