Empowered Pregnancy is a locally owned and operated free standing birth center, centrally located next to Evergreen Hospital in the Totem Lake area of Kirkland, WA. The location is easy to find and there is parking available. The Birth Center is owned by Certified Nurse Midwife Kim Johansen. Kim has worked for over twenty years as a nurse midwife and is able to provide that knowledge and experience to her new clients here. The birth center opened in May of 2019. Kim is the primary care provider at the birth center and is supported by a small staff of receptionist, massage therapist, and some doula affiliates. A freestanding birth center is a safe and supportive environment for women with low risk pregnancies. A certified nurse midwife is able to provide exceptional care for pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. As this business continues to grow and establish itself in the birthing community of the Eastside we have no doubt that many families will be blessed to have the care and services provided here.
A positive family environment for pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care. Very attentive and thorough. Great middle ground between home birth and hospital birth. Wonderful and reassuring care throughout our families newborn experience
It is the best birth center in greater Seattle area. Love it!
I visited this birth center with a friend. Every detail has been thoroughly planned from the interior design to the latest equipment. It truly looks like beautifully designed and comfortable place to have your children.
Such a beautiful space! Kim is extremely experienced, knowledgeable, and kind. The birth classes were beyond expectations, so informative and thoughtful. This is a great middle ground option for those who don’t feel comfortable giving birth at home but would prefer not to have to go to the hospital. 100% recommend!
