Rainier Valley Midwives (RVM) is a growing 501(c)3 organization comprised of experienced midwives, doulas, and consumers with years of providing care in a variety of settings for birthing families. RVM looks at the care of expectant mothers through a social justice lens. We believe in the power of community; we partner with physicians and local organizations to provide relevant, sensitive, and equitable services to our neighbors.

We support capacity building among representative providers of color from the community, and seek ways to enable them to serve traditionally marginalized members of the community: people of color, refugees, immigrants, people who identify as LGBTQ, and people with disabilities. We recognize that marginalization is intersectional, and are committed to meeting clients where they are at in order to meet their needs.

We envision a world where all women and families have equitable access to high quality culturally-relevant maternity care. In this vision, midwives lead a collaborative team of providers to improve birth outcomes among our clients and promote the best health of our communities.
