If you think that home birth in the US is unsafe, this conversation will challenge your assumptions. Judy is a midwife doctor who completed her midwifery education at SUNY Downstate Medical Center and her Doctorate of Nursing Practice at NYU.

Through public speaking, interviews, and private consultations she has shared the research and professional guidelines on planned home birth, birthing centers, and hospitals in the US.
