She founded the Institute of Feminine Arts, the first non-medical school for midwifery in North America, and a California State certified college dedicated to the studies of midwifery. She is the author of Birth Book. In 1982, she began her training in TCM and incorporated TCM into her midwifery. For the next three years she apprenticed with Dr. Miriam Lee, a nurse midwife from China and one of the first licensed acupuncturists in California. With Dr. Lee, Raven learned the patterns of Master Tung's Magic Points. Presently, Raven Lang teaches classes, offers externships, and serves as an advisory board member for Institute of Feminine Arts and Sciences, a newly opened school of midwifery in Santa Rosa, California.
