Hi, I'm Stephanie.

I’m a homebirth midwife serving Boston and surrounding areas. I’m so glad you stopped by!

Stephanie Johnson Boston Midwife

I often say I didn't choose midwifery, midwifery chose me! I was called to this work by my own birth experiences and working with families from my community who continually felt unheard and treated unfairly. The most significant influence is my paternal grandmother who herself was a Grand Midwife in the South and my maternal grandmother who was a nurse.

I stepped into birth work first as a birth sister (doula), then became a certified lactation consultant, and childbirth educator where I served families for 8 years before becoming a midwife. I was committed to helping parents feel prepared to make informed choices that lessen the risk for trauma, interventions, and improving outcomes. With the guidance and support of mentors and my community, I moved into my destiny of becoming a homebirth midwife after graduating from college.

I believe in the importance of reconnecting and reclaiming the rich culture surrounding pregnancy and childbirth. I love providing nurturing care to local families, desiring to see you thrive in your parenting journey.

Raised and still live in Dorchester, MA. In my free time, I enjoy reading, dancing, beaches, and spending time with my 2 daughters, family and friends.
