Stuck in limbo you are left with the option of no care or emergency room 'care'.

I am not making this up!

We stand for EQUAL ACCESS to pregnancy care. We will NOT turn anyone away who needs help in their pregnancy. Delivery choice is yours - birth center or hospital. A full-term healthy baby is all we are looking for - that's it!
YOUR help keeps the doors open - thank you!

CONNECTION is the second tenet of my JJ Way system of maternity care - without it I don't believe we would have achieved the amazing outcomes that we have.

After creating an ACCESS point for ALL mothers we quickly get to the work of CONNECTING her to her unborn baby, and in turn CONNECTING her partner and/or support team, her family and our staff to the BABY as well.

After creating an ACCESS point for ALL mothers we quickly get to the work of CONNECTING her to her unborn baby, and in turn CONNECTING her partner and/or support team, her family and our staff to the BABY as well. With this kind of support it becomes a COMMUNITY effort to bring the mom and baby safely to term and supports the opportunity for healthier beginnings for all our families.

The JJ Way has four tenets - Access, Connections, Knowledge and Empowerment - learn more here www.commonsensechildbirth.org/jj-way.

If you can send $5.40 for my 54th Birthday Wish, we can put that to work! Thank you!
