    Sara Alvarado, Licensed Midwife & Naturopathic Doctor
    sara@rcmidwife.com

    Lynn HughesMy name is Sara Alvarado and I hail from the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. I have wanted to be a health care provider as long as I can remember and most of what I did in my formative years was aimed at discovering what kind of practitioner and human I wanted to be. During college I worked as a health educator and a labor organizer for a health care workers union. My heart has always been in grassroots organizing and my college years were filled with this.

    After graduating from college, I spent a year working as a case manager with AmeriCorps for individuals experiencing homelessness in Austin, Texas and strategizing about how I could provide quality healthcare for families and increase access to such care. This led me to Naturopathic Medicine and Midwifery at Bastyr University. Rainy City provided me with my first out- of-hospital birth experiences as a midwifery student and during my training and since I've joined Rainy City, I've helped to welcome more than 200 babies. I feel very blessed and excited to have joined Lynn and Beth now as a Licensed Midwife and Naturopathic Doctor.
