Upon graduating, she worked in a local children’s hospital as a pediatric nurse. Later, in an effort to follow her passion for childbirth, she became a Certified Doula through Doulas of North America, and a Certified Breastfeeding Educator in 2011.

City: Tulsa Name: Joey Minick Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Website: www.alightbirths.com Joey has had two awesome birth experiences: something she didn’t even realize was possible until a few years ago, when a man who had taken a natural childbirth course with his wife excitedly told her his child’s birth story during a business meeting. She had never heard someone tell a positive birth story before. This sparked a journey which led her to give birth to both of her children naturally, including one water birth. After experiencing first-hand the empowerment of natural childbirth, she decided to become a natural birth instructor herself, and inspire others to have amazing births too. Joey is excited to offer classes through Birth Boot Camp because she feels the program offers a comprehensive and contemporary approach to helping couples achieve natural childbirth.
