Kathleen Donaldson, CNM, MS

Readers of FW Child Magazine recently voted UNT Health’s Kathleen Donaldson "Best Nurse-Midwife" in the magazine’s "Best for Moms and Babies 2013" issue.

Donaldson, CNM, MS, serves as the director of the UNT Health Nurse Midwives group. She is one of seven UNT Health certified nurse-midwives, a practice within the department of UNT Health Obstetrics & Gynecology.

The midwifery group offers expectant parents a host of services, including full-scale prenatal, birth and postpartum care; natural and medicated births; hydrotherapy and water births; and supports the right for patients to choose the birth plan that is right for them.

"It wasn’t that long ago that the idea of a midwife was still unknown to people," says Donaldson. "But so many women today want to participate in the planning and decision-making of their childbirth, and our approach centers on the individual emotional, spiritual and physical needs of each woman."

The clinical component of the UNT Health Science Center, UNT Health is one of Tarrant County’s largest multi-specialty group practices, offering more than 220 specialty providers dedicated to improving the health and quality of life for the people of Texas and beyond.
