"Journey Midwife is an incredible, affirming, and intentional practice of home birth midwives who are dedicated to client-centered, equitable care. We’ve birthed both our babies under their care and are at a loss for words for all the ways Emi provides physical, emotional, and energetic care for birthing people and their support team.
