MEET YOUR ROOTS MIDWIFERY COMMUNITY IN BOSTON
Stephanie Johnson, DEM, LC, CBE
Graduate of Birthwise Midwifery School

Certified Lactation Consultant
Welcome.I'm Stephanie, your home birth midwife!
With my own deep ancestral roots in midwifery, I’m here to help you tap into your own power while feeling safe, seen, and heard.
I didn’t choose midwifery—midwifery choose me! This work is in my blood. My paternal grandmother was a Grand Midwife in the South, and my maternal grandmother was a nurse. I was called to midwifery after my own birth experiences, and working with families in my community who continually felt unheard and treated unfairly.
I first stepped into birth work as a birth sister (doula), then became a certified lactation consultant and childbirth educator. I served families in these roles for 8 years before becoming a midwife. I wanted to do everything I could to help parents in my community make informed choices to improve birth outcomes and lessen their risk for birth trauma and interventions. After graduating from college, I moved into my destiny of becoming a home birth midwife with the guidance and support of my community and mentors.
My mission as a midwife is to help Black parents reconnect and reclaim the rich culture surrounding pregnancy and childbirth. I love providing nurturing care to my families and seeing new parents thrive.
I was raised in Dorchester, MA, where I still live with my two daughters. In my free time, I enjoy reading, dancing, beaches, and spending time with family and friends.
