Midwives Association of Washington State and Kelley-Ross join the Alliance

Last month we welcomed two new members to the Alliance: Midwives Association of Washington State (MAWS) and Kelley-Ross and Association, Inc. Representing a vital component of maternity care and one of the oldest pharmacy companies in Washington state, we are excited by the opportunity to collaborate with these two organizations.

Midwives Association of Washington State

MAWS is a nonprofit professional organization representing midwives statewide. Their vision is to establish midwifery as the highest standard of care for all healthy women during the childbearing cycle. Their activities focus on promoting public awareness of midwifery as a safe and valid choice for maternity care. They develop professional standards, provide continuing education and peer review opportunities and promote accountability through their state-approved quality management program. Their lobbying and advocacy efforts have resulted in better health care options for women and increased professional recognition of midwives across the state.
