Seattle Midwifery School , "Wa-Hoo!" Event Sponsor

Seattle Midwifery School has been educating and inspiring childbirth professionals for 30 years. Their well-known, rigorous midwifery program, founded in 1978, is the oldest direct-entry midwifery program in the country.

In the late 1980's, with the help of experts in the field of childbirth, SMS began developing a series of premiere birth doula, postpartum doula, childbirth educator, lactation consultant, and doula trainer courses for their Extension Education Program that draw participants from across North America to their lovely retreat-like campus in the Laurelhurst neighborhood.

Seattle Midwifery School understands the importance of public events like Birth and the "BOLD Red Tent" and was the force behind BOLD 2006 and a major sponsor for BOLD 2007. Their commitment to birth choices that work for mothers is reflected in their vision: "We strive for a world where every family has access to care, education and options, contributing to a safe and joyous pregnancy, birth and postpartum."
