About Midwifery

If you’re unfamiliar with midwifery, it’s an age-old specialty which has been trusted by mothers and parents-to-be for centuries. Midwives are trained in the natural delivery of babies, believing that childbirth is something a woman was designed to do. As midwives, we are well-versed in both natural and medical practices of birth and how to safely deliver babies into this world.

As the rise of modern medicine came to be, midwifery declined in popularity. However, over the last several decades, it’s been acknowledged that the setting and protocol for hospital births aren’t necessary or desired for every birthing situation.

To practice as a midwife in Washington State, we must pass some of the most rigorous training, clinical requirements, and continuing education in the country. In fact, we must care for over 100 women and babies before we can get our license. Our midwives have college degrees in addition to a Bachelors or Masters in Midwifery. We can’t wait to tell you more about our expertise and experience!
