Why Not Home?




Jennie Joseph, LM, CPM, Founder Commonsense ChildbirthJennie never met a challenge she didn’t face head on. As an immigrant from the UK, she assumed she would be able to work as a midwife in hospitals as she had back home. She soon found out that if she wanted to practice as a direct entry midwife in the US, she would have to learn to do home or birth center birth–so that’s what she did. In the course of her practice she became more and more concerned with the disparities she was seeing among racial and socioeconomic lines. Not satisfied with the systems currently in place, she found a way to work creatively within the system to expand services and remove any barrier to maternity care.
