“Although the popularly desired outcome is ‘healthy mother, healthy baby’, I think there is room in that equation for ‘happy, non-traumatized, empowered and elated mother and baby.’”

Rose City Midwifery is a home birth practice serving the beautiful Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA metro areas. Our practice was founded by midwives Liz Clary CPM, LDM, LM and Melissa Gordon-Magnus, CPM, LDM, LM. We provide care that is compassionate, inclusive, and evidence-based.

As out-of-hospital providers, we believe in the power of choice. Through the people we serve, we are able to witness how empowering and transformative birth can be when families are supported in making the decisions that they believe are best for themselves and their babies. With this in mind, we strive to honor each person's innate wisdom about their own body throughout care, while also integrating the important clinical knowledge a midwife brings to facilitate a healthy and safe birth experience. 

We practice in a model of relationship-based care, which allows for the development of a close bond between midwife and client. We see that the development of a strong relationship leads to greater sense of trust, ease, and comfort throughout your entire course of care. There is a lot of love and laughter in our practice and we feel fortunate to have known and cared for so many incredible families over our years in practice. We truly love our work and we think it shows!

Rose City Midwifery is dedicated to providing culturally competent care to a diversity of family structures, races, body types, faiths, sexual orientations, and gender expressions. We look forward to learning more about you and your family and how we can best serve you during this very special time in your life.
