Getting to Know Founder and Midwife, Jennie Joseph

In 2015 Commonsense Childbirth Inc. added the National Perinatal Task Force, which is an organization on a national level to support birth workers who are working inside of marginalized communities of need.

Groundswell was able to help Commonsense as they’ve built this grassroots movement to recognize that for us to fight disparities we need to do that collectively.
