Vicki Penwell

Vicki Penwell is an international humanitarian aide worker, licensed midwife and CPM, and teacher who has practiced for 30 years, first in Alaska and then in Asia for the past 20 years. She and her family founded a non-profit charitable organization called Mercy In Action that trains midwives and establishes birth centers in poor countries. The Mercy In Action birth centers, which are NARM-approved out-of-country sites for training CPMs, are funded by donations and midwifery student tuition so that every delivery is free of charge to the woman and her family. Outcomes of more than 12,000 births have been excellent.
