Resident Midwife Application
Did you ever want your own birth center?
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 rent use of clinic space (which room may vary depending on active births) and pay a rent to use the space. Monthly rental fees are $500 per clinic day (for example, clinic on Fridays each week costs $500 per month. Clinic on Tuesdays and Thursdays costs $1000 per month.) They provide their own basic equipment and supplies and can purchase medications and supplies as needed from the birth center.
For an additional fee of $400 per month, our front desk can schedule, check-in, and check-out clients for the resident midwives. These midwives will have meet and greets scheduled for them from potential clients who call in seeking care.
--Clients are greeted by the front desk
