Resident Midwife Application


Hello Midwives!

--Do you want kinship while retaining the autonomy of owning your practice?

--Do you need access to a birth center and clinic space without the hassle of owning or managing a physical location?

--Are you a new midwife seeking mentorship and a low-cost startup opportunity?

Join the Community Resident Midwife Program at the Renton Birth Center. Our program is designed to support sustainable practice with built-in mechanisms such as a referral stream, BA stipend, and group purchasing for supplies.

Resident Midwives (RMW) have practices of their own but operate out of the Renton Birth Center and attend their client's births at the Renton Birth Center or attend home births. 

Resident Midwives see clients in Renton, have access to host events in Renton or Seattle, and use of workspaces in both locations. 

Resident Midwives:

--Clients are greeted by the front desk

--Request ultrasound appointments on site for their clients

--Request evaluation and treatment from the ARNP and ND team as needed for their clients

--Access to on-call Birth Assistants

--Community Midwife stipend per birth (see agreement for details)

--Listing on our website as a practicing midwife

--Access to supportive weekly chart review in community with peers who want to learn with and promote each other's work

--LM Credentialing Preceptor for first 5 births for all midwives who have been practicing for less than two years at no cost to you

--Participation in journal reviews and skills drills quarterly

--Admin work room open 7 days per week

Easy access to per-diem and vacation coverage by other resident midwives who are already credentialed to practice at the birth center. 

The Process:

--Complete your application

--Your application will be reviewed by two of your peers within two weeks

If accepted: 

--Submit all required documents

--Receive notice of active credential

--Begin credentialing mentorship program (5 charts and births) at no cost to you
