Nutrition is always important but especially after giving birth!
Your food choices can greatly affect you and your health as well as the development of a healthy breastmilk supply. Seeking out nutritional guidance and support not only helps you feel your best as you shed the baby weight, it can also help ensure your baby will be as healthy and happy as possible.

Empowered Pregnancy is a group of Certified Nurse Midwives and Professional Doulas working to improve the healthcare and birth experiences of women in the greater Seattle area. We are excited to bring our practice to a new birth and wellness center opening in Kirkland later this year.
We are proud to be the only certified nurse-midwifery owned and run birth center in the State of Washington. Being a certified nurse midwife, as well as a nurse practitioner, allows us to prescribe a wide range of medication that our patients might need, offer nitrous oxide and narcotics during childbirth and provide gynecological care and primary care to nonpregnant women. This enables us to care for women throughout their lifespan.
Our practice offers a wide range of services. We have a full-service doula program, offer a wide range of educational classes, a nutritionist on staff, and a complementary therapy room where our clients can receive massages, acupuncture, and other complementary health services.
Our midwives have over 20 years of experience and have caught well over a thousand babies. Our midwives believe in family-centered care and that the client should be an equal partner in her health care decisions. We have a highly trained and supportive staff so our families can feel safe while having the birth experience of their choice. In the rare instance that there would be a complication, our midwives are experienced in handling all OB emergencies and Evergreen hospital is just across the road from the birth center.
