I am relatively new to the DC area and am expecting my second baby. I am very interested in home birth and after researching the Internet and looking at my insurance my options have boiled down to birth care or Joey Pascarella. Anyone have birth experience with Joey? I would appreciate any feedback.

You can PM Jenga for her experience.  I'm sure there are other moms who have used her who can tell you about their experience.  I haven't used her, she doesn't come to my area.

We used Birthcare and loved them!

Another good resource for reading client reviews on both providers is the Birth Options Alliance listserv:


If you scroll down to the bottom of the page on the left hand sign, you'll find a link to their listserv, which is hooked up to an amazing amount of birth workers and home birth families in the area. I'm sure you could find plenty of reviews there by reading past posts.


Personally, I interviewed both of the options you mentioned and they weren't for me. I went with another home birth midwife in the area.

Joey attended my birth last May & I was happy with her.  Feel free to PM me with any specifics.

Please put negative health care provider reviews in out Reviews section.  This is for liability reasons, and we need negative reviews to not be on the boards, but only in our review section. You are free to PM me if you wish to discuss it further.  I have removed a post containing a negative review.

I just gave birth at home with Joey and had a really good experience.  Her assistant is a pediatric nurse and she also has a student midwife.  We used her because she takes Tricare.  I think she may be the only HB midwife in the area who does.

Why would negative reviews be deleted?  I think that's irresponsible.

You are free to post negative prOvider reviews in the reviews section. Just not in our forums. If you wish to discuss it further, please feel free to PM me.

We do not allow negative reviews because members post anonymously under usernames and the legal liability falls on us since we do moderate content on the forums. We do not moderate reviews content in the Reviews section so you are welcome to post your review there. However, the Reviews section is not a discussion forum so your review should be posted as directed in the Reviews guidelines. 


I'm sorry but this thread is closed and the negative review content removed.
