Stefanie Young, RN, BSN, MSN, CNM, is a Board Certified Nurse-Midwife through the AMCB, the American Midwifery Certification Board. She grew up in Erie Pennsylvania and graduated from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. After graduation, Stephanie relocated to Clearwater, Florida, where her career started as a postpartum nurse. She began a nurse-residency program, specializing in labor and delivery. She worked in labor and delivery for the following nine years. Stefanie has always been a compassionate, caring nurse with a passion for women’s health care throughout their lifespan. Fascinated with the birthing process, Stefanie decided to pursue her dream of becoming a nurse midwife. She graduated with a Masters Degree in Midwifery from State University of New York at Stony Brook in 2003. Stefanie began practicing nurse-midwifery in Florida until 2007.
Coincidentally, a midwifery position in her home town became available when her younger sister was expecting her first child. With a strong sense of family, Stefanie felt compelled as well as excited to return to her roots and embrace her new growing family. This also gave her a chance to spoil her nieces. Stefanie continued to practice in Erie for 13 years in a few different practice settings. She dedicated the last 6 years to a solo midwifery practice. For her, solo practice was the most enjoyable since she was able to really get to know her patients, build a stronger provider-patient relationship, and feel appreciated for her dedicated compassionate care. In addition to mastering normal pregnancies, Stefanie is knowledgeable and experienced with high risk pregnancies.
Relocating to Virginia
Stefanie decided to relocate to Virginia in order to be closer to her family here in Fairfax. She is a very patient, kind, and supportive provider. Her philosophy is to empower women, listen, and help them make decisions about their own care during their pregnancies as well as their gynecological care. She also has a minor in psychology and is always willing to take the extra time to listen to women and help them if they’re having struggles in their life. Stefanie is very patient-centered and willing to work with patients and their families with setting goals with whatever the situation may be.
She will induce patients when indicated, will induce electively if appropriate, and will be at your bedside during the delivery of your special little one. Her C-section, laceration, and episiotomy rates are very low.
Stefanie enjoys caring for the adolescent community as well as the perimenopausal, and menopausal women. Aside from complete obstetrical care, she is experienced in all aspects of GYN care, from routine annual exams, abnormal bleeding problems, prescribing any birth control option, including IUD and Nexplanon insertions/removals and problem visits.
Stefanie is a fabulous aunt who enjoys her three nieces and one nephew. She enjoys traveling and live music especially concerts, listening to audiobooks, as well as podcasts. Stefanie is new to Reston, is still learning the area and is looking forward to caring for you.
