Kiersten and Ben’s Story

“I had a lot of worries going into my first pregnancy. I was so unsure of what to expect in the labor and delivery process. Finding Josie was a true answer to our prayers. She empowered us to make decisions we felt confident in, and ensured that we kept an open mind to the aspects of birth that are outside of our own control. My labor brought up several challenging moments that I needed to work through as a survivor of trauma. Josie was right there with us, supporting both of us in the effort to keep my mind at ease. We went into the labor room with a beautiful plan. Despite the fact that our baby’s needs changed that plan notably, we ended up with a truly validating experience.”
