Josie and her husband of 15 years live with their five kids on 2 beautiful acres of Northeastern, Ohio where the children roam the woods and her husband tames the brambles. She’s been a childbirth educator and birth doula since 2012. After a successful VBA2C (a vaginal birth after 2 c-sections) in 2011, Josie felt a burden to share the knowledge and confidence she gained from an evidence-based childbirth class, an amazing doula, the support of her husband, and the incredible resources she found as she strove for the safest and healthiest birth for her children.
Josie has had 5 very different births with a variety of care providers in 3 different hospitals and at home. Those experiences (some good and some not so good) have pushed her to research like a crazy person to find accurate, evidence-based information about pregnancy, birth, newborn procedures, postpartum care, breastfeeding, and parenting a newborn. . . first for herself and now for the families she serves.
