About Millie

Millie is reimagining the hospital-based midwifery model. We aim to provide more complete, inclusive, and empowering care with better maternal health outcomes by centering midwifery care with OB collaboration when needed as a standard in the U.S. 

Our Berkeley, CA in-person clinic provides a warm and welcoming environment for holistic perinatal care. At Millie, support extends beyond the clinic through app-based education, remote monitoring, and virtual care spanning specialties. We partner with Alta Bates Hospital for our labor and delivery services — and all services are covered by major insurance plans and Medi-Cal. Our patient population is very diverse and we hope to build a clinical team that reflects the patients we serve.

At Millie, we are committed to health equity and culturally competent care — as well as prioritizing, affirming, and celebrating diversity within our team, clinicians, and patients. We strongly encourage BIPOC and LGBTQ+ individuals, veterans, and people with disabilities to apply. Please send us your resume and a statement of interest at [email protected] to apply.

Our clinic and care team are successful when all birthing parents, regardless of background:

  1. Feel valued, respected, and heard.
  2. Feel confident and supported in their decisions.
  3. Can easily access trusted and skilled support.
  4. Experience a healthier pregnancy, birth, and postpartum journey. 

This includes (but is not limited to) reduced rates of preterm births, NICU stays, C-sections, earlier detection of complications, and a better experience.

This is an opportunity to raise the bar for maternity care, shape a growing midwifery practice, and work with a team of inspiring and committed people. If you are passionate about improving reproductive health, come join us!
