Certified Nurse Midwives

Kira Waters, C.N.M., WHNP

 

The three words that best describe Kira are – vibrant, compassionate, and driven.

 

Kira was born in Ogden, Utah and grew up in Wyoming. She received her associate’s degree in nursing from Northwest College in Powell, Wyoming in 2008. Before her graduation, she was awarded an externship in the Labor and Delivery unit at West Park Hospital in Cody, Wyoming. For the next four years she worked as a Labor and Delivery nurse at the hospital and as an office nurse for one of the local OB/GYN physicians. During this time she also completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from the University of Wyoming. (2012)

 

While working as a L&D nurse, Kira discovered her calling. She enjoyed helping expectant mothers through the delivery process, and she loved witnessing and participating in the miracle of birth. Her patients found her to be caring and knowledgeable, as well as passionate about here chosen vocation. This passion led her to the University of Utah to further her education even more. In the spring of 2015, Kira graduated with a doctorate degree as a Nurse Practitioner in Women’s Health and Certified Nurse Midwifery.  She believes in the empowerment of women and giving women the education needed to make their own decisions regarding their health.  She feels strongly that focus needs to be placed on health maintenance and disease prevention which can often be accomplished through a healthy lifestyle. Above all, Kira believes that women deserve a health care environment that is safe and without judgement; a place where women receive compassionate and the highest quality through open and honest discussion.

 

Kira hasn’t had much spare time in the last few years, but when she has it, she loves spending her time with her two sons, Cole and Peyson. Since Kira is a genuine “people person”, she enjoys spending time with family and friends.  She loves being active, especially outdoors and is enjoying discovering all that Utah has to offer!

 

Kira is excited to join the staff at the Mt. Olympus OBGYN Clinic in Salt Lake City, Utah and looks forward to meeting new friends and patients!
