Katie Joynt

Katie Joynt saw a flyer hanging on a corkboard in a natural food store in 1993, which read, “Love birth? Be a Doula!” She loved birth but had no clue what the word “doula” meant, so she was inspired to find out. Not long after that, her husband gave her a copy of Spiritual Midwifery, which effectively and irreversibly changed the course of her life. In 2003, she was blessed with an apprenticeship opportunity and has been attending about 20–30 births a year with the Amish community since then.
