Provider Bio

KC Bly is a certified nurse-midwife with Women's Healthcare Associates in Oregon City, Oregon.

From the Provider

“The highlight of my day is when I’ve helped someone feel more accomplished, successful and empowered to continue on their path. Watching patients of all backgrounds with different needs, goals and health knowledge leave the exam room with more confidence than they arrived is gratifying and inspires my daily practice.”

About the Provider

Intersecting interests in science, health, feminism and advocacy set the stage for KC’s eventual decision to pursue a career in nurse-midwifery. As an undergraduate women’s studies major, learning about the impact investing in women’s health and education can have on individuals, families and entire communities left a lasting impression and inspires KC’s practice today—where he emphasizes helping each person feel stronger and more capable of managing their health. His focus is family planning, including contraception and caring for people through pregnancy, childbirth and the transition to parenthood. KC enjoys working with teens, recent immigrants and people who identify as LGBTQ+. He finds it particularly rewarding to care for people who have had limited access to health education in their lives or who have not felt empowered by past interactions with the healthcare system.

An author and educator, KC’s experience also includes serving as co-chair of the American College of Nurse-Midwives' Ethics Committee Gender Bias Task Force and as a volunteer on the Diversity and Inclusion Task Force. When not caring for patients or advocating for better patient care, KC enjoys all things outdoors—hiking, backpacking, running, cycling and swimming. He is stepdad to Robert, nearly eight, and he and his wife just welcomed daughter Elena in September.
