Jodilyn Owen, LM, CPM, Ma MSCHS (she/her)
Clinical Director, Licensed Midwife

Jodilyn is a Licensed Midwife and co-founder of this organization.  She was born and raised in Seattle and raised her own family in South Seattle, working as a doula and parenting educator for many years before becoming a midwife.  Jodilyn loves teaching and learning from the families she serves and her colleagues and students.  She is passionate about community-based work and increasing capacity within the midwifery community to serve from a public health stance. A born collaborator, she is happiest working in a team innovating programs and services that delight healthcare consumers and the providers who serve them. 

Jodilyn has been a midwife since 2012, practicing in Seattle and Memphis.  She joins the RVM midwifery team with a focus on families who want all of the benefits of community-based midwifery care and a planned hospital birth.  She builds her practice around the idea that parents know themselves and their babies best, and her work is designed to promote this first relationship.  

Jodilyn is our Clinical Director, and provides infrastructure development for Rainier Valley Midwives, leading collaborative rounds, supports student midwives, and develops unique avenues of education and skill development for the team and our colleagues.  She recently completed her masters in Maternal Child Health Systems. 


Above all, she is passionate about innovating at the intersection of love and justice and healthcare.
