Joyce practices as a homebirth midwife, birth doula, childbirth educator, birth counselor, and belly caster. She is active in the Massachusetts birth community - answering many questions on the MassDoula email list, connecting families with appropriate childbearing-year services, serving in various capacities with the MA trade organization - Massachusetts Midwives Alliance, precepting student midwives, nurses, and doulas, and talking with anyone and everyone about birth, supporting birth choice and reproductive justice.
