About Millie 

Millie is reimagining the hospital-based midwifery model. We aim to provide complete, inclusive, and empowering care. Our dream is to achieve better maternal health outcomes by providing excellent midwifery and doula care with OB-GYN physician collaboration.

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 medical services are covered by major insurance plans and Medi-Cal. Our patient population is diverse and we hope to build a clinical team that represents the patients we serve.

At Millie, we are committed to health equity and providing 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. 

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.
