Our Mission

The Philadelphia Midwife Collective's mission is to provide affordable and accessible reproductive and well-person care while nurturing a space for evidence based, full spectrum support throughout the reproductive lifespan.

Philadelphia Midwife Collective (PMC) is an independent midwifery practice based in the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia, PA. The group is a registered 501c3, currently offering community-based midwifery care in the home and hospital settings.  Philadelphia Midwife Collective is partnered with the Einstein Healthcare Network and is proud to have hospital privileges at both Einstein Medical Center Montgomery and Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia.

PMC is committed to the intentional provision of care within a collective framework. We partner with local practitioners and specialists to provide comprehensive reproductive health care throughout the lifespan, including gynecologic care, childbirth services, menopausal care, family planning, and well-person primary care. Our collective team includes chiropractic care, acupuncture, mental health, and lactation services.

PMC is committed to serving marginalized communities including people of color, LGBT/Queer clients, low-income individuals, and Medicaid recipients. Accessibility of quality midwifery care within the community is the cornerstone of our practice.

We are on a mission to open Philadelphia's first birth center. To support us in our effort, please DONATE.

 

The Birth Center

Philadelphia Midwife Collective is currently working toward opening a freestanding birth center in Northwest Philadelphia with the goal of providing full spectrum reproductive services, community programing, accessible complementary health services, and comprehensive prenatal, postpartum, and well-person care.

PMC’s midwives and board of directors are committed to:

  1. A physical space that is welcoming to all and physically accessible by public transportation.

  2. A wide selection of primary and complementary health services above and beyond midwifery care that are affordable and offered on a siding-scale.

  3. Working with medicaid.

  4. Hiring from within the community; queer/trans folks and people of color to the front.

  5. Hosting a wide selection of community building and educational resources, both in our space and throughout the community.

  6. Developing relationships at area hospitals and educating staff about midwifery care and the needs and desires of their surrounding community in order to support evidence-based and consumer-driven care.
