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 13 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 thrilled to be working on 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 are seeking home, birth center, or hospital births. 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. She provides individualized, gentle, and holistic pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care for families planning a home or hospital birth.
Jodilyn is proud to be in her 10th year working as a midwife in a setting that promotes continuity of carer--where the midwife a client sees for pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care is one and the same.
Jodilyn is our Clinical Director, and provides infrastructure development for Rainier Valley Midwives, leads 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 and serving at the intersection of love and justice and healthcare.
