Compassionate, evidence-based maternity care

Attending births in homes and birth centers in the Seattle area


When pregnant individuals and their families are able to get to know their maternity care provider over the course of months, seasons, and many conversations throughout their pregnancy, a trusting and caring relationship can be built slowly over time.
