Over the years Peninsula Midwives has consisted of either one midwife or two midwives sharing the practice, seeing clients individually and attending births together. The practice was started by Kathy Luch in 1987 after graduating from Seattle Midwifery School. The original name, Quimper Midwifery, was changed to Peninsula Midwives in 1990.
Currently Melanie Dickson, who graduated from SMS in 2006 practices with Kathy. Together, we have attended over 700 births, at home, birth center and hospital. We see clients in Kathy's home near Beckett Point outside of Port Townsend.
Melanie has two daughters, and Kathy has two sons, and five grandchildren.
