Empowered Pregnancy Birth Center and Empowered Pregnancy Women's Clinic
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.
“Kim was so supportive of our desire for natural births. She did everything possible to make sure our baby’s birth went as we described in our birth plan. She is knowledgeable, compassionate, and straightforward, which was very helpful both during delivery a d prenatal care.”
“I am so happy and excited to have Kim here in Kirkland! Her knowledge about prenatal, postnatal and pregnancy care is outstanding and she brings so much light to the community! I HIGHLY recommend this center!!”
“Kim was with me for 2 of my deliveries. We loved having her with us. She showed so much love and compassion throughout my labor and deliveries. I really appreciated the time that she spent with me while I labored. She was great. I’m so thankful that she was there to help bring my little miracle baby into this world safely.”
