About Us


Washington State Obstetrical Association

We are a non-profit educational organization dedicated to improving the healthcare of women in the state of Washington. We bring together physicians, midwifes, nurses and anyone involved in caring for the obstetrical patient who are dedicated to this goal in our state.

Our main educational endeavor is our annual continuing educational meeting in December each year. At this meeting we bring nationally recognized experts in the fields of obstetrics and gynecology to Seattle to present the most up to date information and research activities in our field. This gives an opportunity for all of our members and non-members alike to come together for education and professional interaction to ultimately enhance the healthcare of Washington women and their families.

We also provide expert testimony and advice to government agencies in our state charged with responsibility for the healthcare of Washington women. This is another way we use our training and experience for the benefit of women in our state.

We offer an annual educational grant for research in women’s healthcare which is awarded at our annual meeting. This is done to encourage young healthcare professionals to use their talents to help us improve women’s healthcare in our state.

We are a non-profit organization and any financial support you can help us with in our goal of improving the healthcare of women in Washington would be greatly appreciated. You can contact us about this or any other topic by email.
