Licensed midwives are autonomous, independent professionals who work with women and their families during the childbearing year. Midwives work in concert with other professionals within the community to provide holistic, thorough maternity care. Gig Harbor Midwifery provides prenatal, intrapartum, and postpartum care to healthy women regardless of personal beliefs, race, sexual orientation, or economic status.
Gig Harbor Midwifery currently consists of Niki Coraggio, LM. Niki is a Licensed Midwife (LM) who graduated from the Seattle Midwifery School in 2009. Niki is a professional member of the Midwives Association of Washington State (MAWS), the National Association of Certified Professional Midwives (NACPM) and the Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA). She has attended over 250 births since 2007, both in hospital, at birth centers, and at home. Student midwives who are training in an accredited program may also be involved in care if clients consent. Gig Harbor Midwifery feels strongly that the training of students is an important part of increasing access to competent and safe midwifery care in our communities.
Your birth team will include Niki, her student, and an assistant.
