We need your help to support midwifery in Washington. Spend the day with MAWS in Olympia.

About this Event

We are glad to have you with us!

Join us as we travel in teams to meet with our legislators and advocate for the interests of midwives and families.

The beauty of Midwife Lobby Day is that you can just show up and make an impact even if you don't want to say anything!

On Valentine's Day 2019, over 60 midwives, families and students traveled to our state's capitol to help preserve the cap on our licensing fees and discuss the importance of consumer clarity regarding freestanding birth centers.

Lobby Day 2018 was also very successful. We had a record number of attendees, great response from many legislators, and even a standing ovation.

We hope you'll join us in making 2020 the best year yet!
