Colleen Forbes
Colleen Forbes has been sole proprietor and a licensed midwife of Midwifery Care, a homebirth practice, since 2001.  Ms. Forbes served as President of the Oregon Midwifery Council in 2007-2008, and Advocacy Council/Regional Representative of the council from 2003-2007.  Previously she was Clinic Supervisor at All Women’s Health Services in Eugene, Oregon; Director, Federation of Feminist Women’s Health Centers; and a volunteer in Honduras, Central America, for the United State Peace Corps.
