Maggie Bennett

Maggie Bennett is an artist as well as a midwife. She began her midwifery career in 1975, overlapping her study and practice of midwifery with her teaching career. She has a private homebirth practice in Monterey, CA, and is the longest continuously practicing homebirth midwife in Monterey County. As a senior, experienced midwife, she passes on her expertise and wisdom in the time honored tradition of apprenticeship. She is a well-known midwifery educator and maintains a teaching practice in which she has trained several practicing midwives.

Maggie has been active in midwifery politics on the local, state, and national levels for more than thirty years. She was the Chairwoman of California Association of Midwives when that state passed legislation to license midwives. She has served several terms on the Board of Directors of the Midwives Alliance of North America, and has been honored with the Sage Femme, the highest accolade MANA bestows for her participation, wisdom, and vision for midwifery.

Maggie continues to use her enthusiasm for the future of midwifery care in the U.S. in her work on the Board of the Foundation for the Advancement of Midwifery (FAM).
