We invite you to join our 1000 People Campaign helping us serve mothers and babies in Northern New Mexico. In Taos County, 27.5% of the population lives below poverty level, and unemployment is 15.7%. Approximately 85% of the Midwifery Center's clients are on pregnancy related Medicaid, which reimburses for midwifery services at a rate that does not cover what it costs to provide the services.
We never turn anyone away for inability to pay. We believe that all women deserve compassionate, nurturing and safe care throughout the childbearing year.
