Emily Sloan, APRN, CNM

Emily Sloan is a board certified nurse-midwife whose own personal experience shaped her desire to work as a midwife. She has eight children and birthed them all naturally, choosing a planned home birth for her last three deliveries. As a practitioner that recognizes the power of women and their bodies and trusts the normal physiologic process of birth, she is proud to have the opportunity to empower women to make their own informed choices and watch them grow in confidence as they approach motherhood.

Emily earned her Doctorate in Nurse-Midwifery at Baylor University, her Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Southern Methodist University, and her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from Baylor University. Emily’s experience also includes educating future nurses by teaching in the undergraduate nursing program at Baylor University. With an interest in improving international health, Emily has traveled to South Africa to study the HIV/AIDS pandemic in urban and rural communities, to India to speak and lead midwifery workshops about postpartum hemorrhage management, and training community workers in the Maya population of the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico to help improve prenatal nutrition and gestational weight gain.
