#50 Homebirth in the Hispanic Community

Recorded Wednesday, February 3, 2021. 

Our guest is Jessica Shephard, who talks with us about her two homebirth experiences and how choosing homebirth was a big surprise to her Ecuadorian family!  

Jess was born in Ecuador and moved to the United States when she was almost ten years old and now lives in Central Massachusetts with her husband and two daughters, Gianna (2) and Lucia (7 months) who were both born at home! Her husband’s family is from the Dominican Republic. Her favorite hobby is singing and she can also make a mean hot chocolate bomb!
