Faisa Farole, LM, CPM
Faisa was born in Somalia and grew up in the United States. She is the mother of two beautiful boys. For the last 15 years she has been working with women in a variety of capacities in healthcare and advocacy. She is a graduate from Midwives College of Utah, Washington State Licensed Midwife, and a Certified Professional Midwife.
Her passion for midwifery derives from a love of the Midwifery Model of Care and the ability to inform, empower, and educate women and their families. She believes that women can and should determine the course of their care and enjoys sharing that process with them.
Faisa works to ensure that midwifery care is an option available to every woman and that religious and socio-economic factors do not trump a woman’s right to be heard. She proudly serves the Somali and Southeast Seattle community and is known for her warm, welcoming and skilled care.
As a clinician and active community member, Faisa is ideally situated to help guide the midwives and practitioners who have been internationally trained as they seek licensure in the US.
