Our professional members are midwives working in the Pacific Northwest, primarily Washington state, many of us being "in the trenches" care providers in isolated rural locations where precious few health care services are available to our clients. Our focus is on providing high quality classical midwifery which is centered around the needs of the individual birthing family.
Our supporting membership includes parents, birth advocates, and all other types of birth attendants including doulas and student midwives.
We are joined in the common cause of protecting the quality and variety of safe and legal birthing options. Toward that end we are organizing educational and continuing education opportunities, community forums, lobbying and lawmaking efforts, collaboration with national and international organizations, and peer reviews for midwives.
