People are saying

Amanda Montgomery

I can not say enough wonderful things about Joyce! She is compassionate, caring, informed, and supportive . She never rushed appointmen ts, and always gave me time to discuss any concerns or questions I had. She has a beautiful,  gentle, calming presence.

She gave me confidence  and peace of mind throughout  the whole process. I had switched from an OB to Joyce's care late in pregnancy and it was seriously one of the very best decisions I have ever made. She was calm and collected at all times.

She prayed with us, encouraged  us, and gently guided us and helped us achieve a beautiful,  calm homebirth experience . I will, without a doubt, be choosing her as our midwife for any other pregnancie s God may bless us with. Excellent care, and I highly recommend her to absolutely  everyone!

Leona Mast says:

I have known Joyce Vogel for close to 30 years. As a young girl and neighbor, I watched her raise her family and then be the caregiver/midwife as her daughters began to have families.

In her years of practice,she has developed into a respectable, caring, knowledgeable midwife. I would highly recommend her for your next birth! She will walk with you throughout the pregnancy and beyond. She carries the heart of a mother towards all her mothers and mothers-to-be!

Amy Duffy:

Joyce Vogel is a wonderful, caring and careful midwife. The water birth we
had in 2009 with our second child was wonderful! If I were to have any more children, my child and I would be under her care. Joyce cares about moms and babies, not just while they are her clients, but for life.

Family Birth Services gave us a magical birth experience we will remember always: a treasured memory of the beginning of our child's life-- without the clinicalness and interrupts of our previous hospital birth.

A birth center or home birth with a caring, skilled and creative midwife may be just what you are looking for. It sure was for us. Thank you, Joyce!

“As a midwife, my practice is dedicated to educating you about pregnancy and birth.  Our initial consultations are without charge to establish a relationship and to allow you to ask all the questions you want.  I believe the family should have every opportunity to make informed decisions regarding their birth.  Since childbirth is an experience that is only gone through a limited number of times in a person’s life, I would like to help you have the experience that you desire.”

At Family Birth Services our focus to is make that experience be personalized and tailored to fit your needs. Our goal is to provide you with the best care, with the least amount of intervention, and continual education.

If you are considering having a midwife or an alternative to hospital birth, please take a moment to look around our web site and contact us.
