Who We Are

Body

Willow Wish is a grant program seeking to make the birth center experience accessible to families in Arizona. By raising funds that are then directed to families, Willow Wish is removing the inability to pay as a barrier to high-quality pregnancy and birthing options.  

 

It is our belief that peaceful, evidence-based care should not be a privilege for those who can afford it. The kind of care that focuses on the individual person and honors them as a knowing participant in their pregnancy, labor and birth journey is the right of all birthing people.

 

When a family chooses to birth at a freestanding birth center, they can expect to pay upward of $5,000.  Although the midwifery care at the birth center is generally covered by insurance, the facility fee remains the responsibility of the birthing family.

 

We are working to make it possible for anyone who is wishing to birth at an accredited free-standing birth center in Arizona to do so. If someone cannot afford to pay the facility fee at the place of their choice, then they can apply to the Willow Wish Grant Program to help make their birth center dream come true.

 

Willow Wish is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization.
