A 'perinatal safe spot' can be set up anywhere and be effective in any 'materno-toxic zone',  remember that ANYONE who cares can be an ambassador for a Perinatal Safe Spot. This network is to support YOU supporting women and families and thereby changing these outrageous statistics once and for all !- Jennie Joseph

You do not need to be credentialed, you can start without funding, you don't need to belong to any hospital, agency or group - you simply need to CARE, and be willing to listen, share and encourage each other as together we tackle these overwhelming situations. 

Join us for a question and answer session on our October 9 Hangout as I chat with the women on the ground in Detroit, MI. They will share their experiences, hurdles and triumphs - we will take your questions via our National Perinatal Task Force Facebook page simultaneously, as we address the questions that have flooded in since the launch of the Task Force last month.

To join the National Perinatal Task Force you can sign up via www.commonsensechildbirth.org, and please LIKE our Facebook page where specific information and news will be updated. 
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Jennie Joseph. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Holding the space" is a phrase midwives and doulas use a lot - but what does it really mean for your birth?

Story
Tagline
Your birth is our passion!
Introduction
I am an organic, charismatic, genuine individual. If you choose to get to know me, you will soon realize I hold nothing back. What you see is what you get. I strive to attract like-minded individuals to myself and my business. 
My objectives are: 
  • To utilize my photographic talents to show women throughout their journey just how amazing, strong, and beautiful they really are. 
  • To walk with women through their birth journey, guiding them into self-empowerment so they can have the birth they desire.
  • To support, encourage, and educate women for successful breastfeeding journeys. No matter how long that journey is for them. 
  • To preserve women's placentas to help promote positive postpartum and menopausal seasons.

We placed an order through UES for a Berkey water filtration system. It actually came in a week earlier than it was scheduled to. It works flawlessly and our children love that they can get water whenever they want without needing a stool to reach the sink. We love that they are drinking clean, purified water.
