Consider donating to the Midwives' Association of Washington State!
With your help, in 2020-2021 MAWS will:
- Continue to work with Washington State COVID-19 Midwifery Response Coalition (WSCMRC) in order to provide the most up-to-date information to midwives throughout the state.
Maintain and improve its rigorous, confidential process for peer and incident review, providing a safe place for practitioners to reflect, learn, and grow into even better midwives
Continue as an organizational member of OB COAP, a quality improvement project at the Foundation for Health Care Quality, so that data from home and birth center births can be evaluated alongside hospital-based data
Once again advocate for reasonable limits on midwifery licensing fees
Put on a series of virtual web conferences to provide safe, distanced, and reliable education to midwives.
Continue to stitch midwifery into the fabric of the health care system by cultivating strong, collaborative relationships with other health care providers and hospitals so that birthing in a community setting—at home or in a freestanding birth center—is a seamless option
Work with state agencies to make sure that you have choices about where and with whom you give birth, regardless of where you live, and whether you have private insurance, state insurance, or no insurance.
Your midwife has given you so much -- this is one way to give back! Help us ensure that all families have access to high-quality midwifery care.
