Hello! I'm Kate Richmond. I am nationally certified by the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM) as a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) and credentialed by the State of Washington as a Licensed Midwife (LM). I received my formal education through Birthwise Midwifery School, a MEAC accredited school in rural Maine. During my education I had the honor of attending births in Maine, New Hampshire, Washington and California. After years of schooling and attending births all over the US, I returned home to open my own practice, Huckleberry Homebirth Midwifery, where I provided maternity care to Seattle-area families.
I joined Tiffany Wilson as a midwifery partner in the Spring of 2018, and have availability to offer back up support for her doula clients the rare chance it's needed.
I have had a passion for reproductive health since youth. I believe that childbearing is a natural, normal part of life that should be celebrated and empowered. I am honored to be there to support and guide families through this exciting time in their lives.
When I'm not catching babies, I can be found spending time with my family (my two adopted kiddos and partner), fermenting and baking at home, playing at the local arcades, or exploring the beautiful northwest forests and beaches.
