Welcome to WARM

The Official Site for the Washington Alliance for Responsible Midwifery

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.

Join us for our bi-monthly board meetings the first and third Thursdays each month at 7:30 pm. The first 30 minutes are open to all members.

What is WARM?

WARM is an organization of midwives, other birth professionals, and midwifery-care consumers and advocates in Washington state and the surrounding Pacific Northwest, dedicated to promoting and ensuring high quality maternity care options. Our agenda includes community forums, workshops, peer reviews, and legislative efforts.

The future depends upon the health and well-being of our children, which depends on the quality of their care from conception. That means preserving many options for prenatal care and birth which are legal, safe, and based upon the utmost respect for the mother-baby unit as a whole. WARM seeks a level of care above what has become routine in America, by advancing classical midwifery skills and knowledge among all types of midwives, and improved cooperation between all levels of care providers.

Thank you for visiting. Please return often for new updates on events and classes.
