Kimberly Todd BSN, RNC, a nurse in the Family Birth Center, is the latest
Bozeman Health nurse to be honored with a Daisy Award. Kimberly has received
multiple nominations for a Daisy from her patients, in honor of her passion
for maternal and newborn health. Kimberly earned her nursing degree at
Montana State University, and joined Bozeman Health in 2004, working in
In-Home Services. She has been with the Family Birth Center since 2009.
In one of the many nominations of Kimberly, one patient called her “caring,
compassionate, determined and incredibly sweet.” Kimberly demonstrates
this daily, but a couple of traits stand out, including mentoring young
women through pregnancy and delivery, and teaching modern practices to
midwives in central Asia.
One new mother said Kimberly “was an integral piece in the puzzle
of our beautiful and perfect birth.” Another mother said she felt
“extremely fortunate to have had Kimberly as my nurse” and
went on to say that Kimberly “changed my view of modern medicine.”
Many women in their nomination letters stated that Kimberly was an essential
part of helping them achieve their desire to have a natural birth. She
“created a caregiver-patient bond that I will always remember,”
one mother added. Kimberly is an extraordinary nurse for each of her patients
and is an invaluable asset to her team in the Family Birth Center.
