Our current maternity care system does not meet the needs of the majority of birthing people and babies. Home visits are non-existent. Families are in debt for having a baby. Specific desires are overlooked. The system promotes expensive, interventive, one-size-fits-all care at the expense of individual choice.
That’s why so many people in Washington and around the country are choosing care from midwives today. They want providers who are specially trained in healthy, normal birth. They want clear information and access to their provider. They want personalized care that meets their needs. The only way to get this care is in your home; there is simply no way to get it in a large, facility-based setting.
Sunrise Midwifery is a local midwifery practice since 2009. We have helped many people have their desired birth. We believe in one-on-one care; developing and maintaining professional relationships within the midwifery and medical communities; having a sustainable business and billing model; taking the time to explain options and treatments; and educating clients on insurance coverage…and their shenanigans.
We answer our own phones. Yes, your call goes to your midwife! We answer our own emails and text messages. We use an electronic health record to facilitate transfer of information.
