Joy in Birth Midwifery is a solo practice owned and operated by Jennifer Stewart, IBCLC, LM, CPM. She provides complete care for normal pregnancy, labor, birth, and the postpartum period, with the added specialty of advanced care for breastfeeding issues. The practice has been serving the communities of the east and west coasts since early 2006.
Midwives consider birth a natural event in women’s lives. Midwifery is based on the belief that childbirth is a natural, healthy process and that most women are fully capable of giving birth. Midwives see pregnancy as part of the full spectrum of life’s experiences, and they believe women have the right to a fulfilling, as well as a safe, childbirth experience.
A midwife is a trained professional with special expertise in supporting women to maintain a healthy pregnancy & birth, offering expert individualized care, education, counseling, and support to a woman and her newborn throughout the childbearing cycle. A midwife is a skilled and independent practitioner who has undergone formalized training.
