About Jessica

My experience in birth includes my work as a doula, my completion of a 3 year midwifery apprenticeship in a very busy homebirth practice and being a mother of four, with the last being an unassisted home birth attended only by my husband and myself. My own births led me to become a doula which led me to become an apprentice and in turn, a midwife. But that’s the abbreviated version!
I have been attending homebirths since 2005. I've had the joy of attending breech births, waterbirths, twins and VBAC's. As a member of the Massachusetts Midwives Alliance , I am the chairperson for the MANA Stats Statewide Database Project, a research database which compiles the statistics of homebirth midwives. I also serve on the Postpartum Working Group with the MA Dept of Public Health as a representative of the Massachusetts Midwives Alliance.
I continued my formal education remotely through the National College of Midwifery, where upon completion of my undergraduate studies I earned a degree in the Science of Midwifery and my certification.
