Ali de Zagottis, Midwife

Ali de Zagottis

Midwife, CPM, CDM

Each family’s story is unique,
and it’s a privilege to be part of each journey.

Just as our community values the power of stories and family wellbeing, Ali found midwifery through birth stories that highlighted the importance of empowerment, strength, and supporting one another. After years of catching fish as a commercial fisherman, she made a steadfast commitment to catching babies as a midwife in pursuit of her passion for community health. She holds a master’s degree in midwifery and botanical medicine training from Bastyr University.
