I am considering setting up a consultation with her (I am pregnant). Anyone have a birth with her, and she was the primary? What was her style? What did you love about her? What did you hate? How was her availability? Please pm with details. Thanks in advance.

I birthed with her and Maryellen Albini--the only thing I can say is it was a perfect experience. She was supportive, kind, gentile, and helpful
good luck

Thanks mamamia10. Was she the primary or was Maryellen?

Anyone out there with Joni as the primary?

I'll just say that all I have heard is great things about her. I believe she was the primary for a mom friend of mine, but the mom is under the weather right now and pretty busy. I'll see if I can talk to her about posting something soon.

Joni Stone was my primary midwife. She is awsome. If I ever have another baby I am definately going to ask her to be my midwife again and highly recommend her to anyone. I think that it is really important to feel very comfortable with your midwife so you may want to interview a few. When I interviewed her both my husband and I knew that she was the midwife for us.

I was at a birth taking pictures where Joni was the midwife and I was totally impressed with her. If I get pregnant again I'm going to birth at home with her. She was respectful, low-key, she kept on top of checking the mom out without being intrusive about it, she was nice.


I actually kind of am not happy with my regular midwives after seeing her in action.

Mostly sane mother to twins.

That was me she was taking pictures of. And it was aperfect experince. Joni was amazing, not just at the birth, but before and since. Coming from a coerced c-section she really helped us through our grief and fears and get to a place where we could welcome birth with positivty. And she was not obtrusive about it, very subtle, very supportive, but thats just her way about everything. She also has been extremly supportive of our family since the birth in dealing with some serious health issues that have arisen (not a result of the birth) since our new daughters birth. She is worth every penny and more.

I'm newly pregnant, and have chose Joni. And it was the same for us! I knew she was the one. I even had appointments to interview two other midwives and cancelled them, I just had such a great feeling about her!

We felt the same way. I love love loved her! She actually didn't make it to my birth, it was soo fast and I was actually disappointed that I didn't get to have her there for it, so I can't speak to how she is during labor, but my pre and post natal care was terrific! I miss seeing her. She's a really wonderful woman!
