Welcome to Firstlight Midwifery Care!

Dawn Wadleigh, Licensed Midwife, Certified Professional Midwife
Firstlight Midwifery, located in beautiful Tacoma WA, has been serving women of the childbearing community since January 2003. I offer comprehensive maternity care, which includes: pre-an early pregnancy consultations; pregnancy confirmation; prenatal care; labor and delivery at your home or The Birthing Inn (Tacoma’s only freestanding birth center); breastfeeding support; and a full 6 weeks of postpartum care.


I practice based on the philosophy that pregnancy and childbirth are normal, natural, and powerful life changing events that work best with as little intervention as possible. I am dedicated to building respectful relationships with my clients and strive to provide care that attends to the body, mind, and spirit. It is my goal to ensure that my midwifery care is safe and satisfying for all involved.
