Joey goes above and beyond basic care as a midwife. She is deeply wise, knowledgeable, caring and strong. I had the best possible birth I could imagine thanks to her and her wonderful assistants. Her care continues beyond the birth day postpartum to assist and care for baby and mom, which she does an absolutely fantastic job of! I had another midwife with my previous baby and the care and experience I had with Joey this time around does not even come close! I am thrilled, grateful, blessed and truly impressed with her care and would highly highly recommend her to anyone seeking a wonderful birth experience.
Mrs. Joey is truly amazing, if your looking for a good midwife she is your midwife!! She has a lot of information and resources to help you out. If you are having problems with she will do what she can to see what's going on!! She has truly helped my husband and I out with so much information!!

Client for three years
My experience with Joey as my Doula was nothing but amazing. I feel blessed to have been able to have such a knowledgeable woman to walk me through the stages of pregnancy and birth. Joey took the time to explain and teach me all that goes on during pregnancy, labor, and birth. She always listened to my needs. Joey made me feel more prepared for birth and did an outstanding job keeping me calm and comfortable while in labor! I can’t thank her enough for the countless hours she put into making sure my birth experience was all I could have hoped for.
I worked with Joey as my doula during my first pregnancy and she was able to bring such a special touch to my experience. I have worked with other doulas in my profession as a physician and I know that many do not provide the care that Joey does, especially since she is also trained in midwifery. I was able to chat with her via video, text and phone calls whenever I wanted. She was always so responsive and understanding. She provided me with a significant amount of resources including supplement review, aromatherapy options, mind body approaches and she provided me with the Hypno baby complete program which I was about to do throughout my pregnancy. This provided a significant amount of relaxation, guided meditation and hypnosis that helped with sleep and anxiety as well as in actual labor. As we got closer to my due date Joey was able to guide me though natural labor induction approaches and helped get me prepared for the big day. She even drove all the way to attend my birthing class with me which was great to go over birth plans and questions together with my husband. Unfortunately I was induced at 40weeks due to having gestational diabetes and Joey was with me over the phone the entire time. I had a slow induction and chose not to have Joey join us until things picked up. I thought it was so great that she was so open to coming when I was ready and allowed my husband and me to have some special moments in the delivery room alone when we wanted. When I did call upon her she was at the hospital within minutes and was able to provide homeopathy treatment for nausea, aromatherapy, massage and helped relieve my husband to grab some food while she was by my side. After 24 hours of induction I ended up in a C-section. I chose to have only my husband in the OR with me however Joey rushes to the hospital the next morning to check in on us and make sure we didn’t have any needs and help with latching. She was also able to provide us with great breastfeeding support as a lactation consultant. During the months following my delivery she helped guide my post partem supplementation and provided great breastfeeding resources. She also drove all the way back to my house to give me hands on breastfeeding support. I could not be happier with Joey as a doula! It was everything I had in mind and more! She is still to this day always there when I have a question or just need to vent as a new mom :) “
Joey was such an amazing resource to help me navigate my pregnancy and birth of my twin boys! As a first time mom, going through pregnancy and birth I had a lot of questions! Joey has been present at so many births that she has a huge knowledge base that made me feel relaxed about my journey knowing someone with this expertise was in my corner. Joey respects your wishes as a mother, and helps you navigate your birth, YOUR way! I would highly recommend her to be your corner throughout pregnancy/delivery/postpartum - you will love it!
My husband and I weren't planning on hiring a doula. We had lots of support already and honestly it seemed like a luxury. We needed the extra backup however when having a couple days of exhausting prodromal labor 3 weeks early. Thankfully Joey was happy to come on short notice and thank heavens because she was the secret weapon we all needed! Joey knows her stuff! She made me do things for labor that weren't fun or pleasant but exactly what I NEEDED. :) I went from start/stalling labor for days to ONLY 2 1/2 hours of active labor and then baby in my arms! I'm convinced my 26 hour labor with my first child would've been a fraction of that had Joey been there. She gave tough love, but again, it was just what me and my baby needed!
She acted as a personal trainer or coach, but she also gave tender massage and touch, encouraged me nonstop with reassurance and praise. Breathing in and out with me, reminding and coaching my pace. Gentle touch to show me where I was tensing and needing to relax. Talking me through making the most of each contraction by directing its energy and power to the right places in my body for best effectiveness. I was struggling with so much anxiety and she helped me push past that fear to bring my baby here safe and sound. She even multitasked to helped my husband help me! He was very willing but needed direction in how to help and she empowered him to have the active role he wanted!
She never left my side for a minute... such a comfort and help in one of the most difficult yet exhilarating times of my life. She's been amazing with postpartum visits too, checking in often just to make sure we're doing okay and adjusting well! I would recommend Joey to anyone! She'll be an added strength and help to your birth no matter the situation or setting. Pregnancy is such a worthwhile marathon and this is a coach who'll make sure you cross the finish line well, strong, and the best you can!
