Story Jones, CNM
I love the work that I do and the families that I serve. I am a mother of five children born at home with Certified Nurse Midwives. The midwives that served me did more than help me have empowering births. They created and sustained in me a desire to care for each of my clients in the same nurturing way.
In college I obtained degrees in Biology (Gordon College) and Nursing (George Mason University). I confirmed my desire to be a midwife during a five-month mission trip working with doctors and midwives at a clinic in The Gambia, West Africa. I married my husband, Josiah, in 2005, the same year I started working as a Registered Nurse (RN).
I graduated from Frontier Nursing University with my Master of Science in Nursing to become a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) in 2009 and worked from 2010 to 2015 with BirthCare and Women's Health as a home birth midwife for families throughout the Washington area. I cherish the excellent midwives and birth assistants I worked with there and the amazing families that I was blessed to serve. I am certified by the American College of Nurse Midwives and am licensed to practice midwifery and to prescribe in the state of Virginia.
The time came for me to pursue the one-on-one relationships that first attracted me to midwifery. I also desired to focus on serving my own community. This brought about the "birth" of Fairfax Home Birth.
I consider it a privilege to come to truly know the families I serve. I am honored that you would consider inviting me into your home for this momentous event in your life. Whether the decision to give birth at home is one that comes easily, or one that you need time to ponder and investigate, I hope that you will feel at ease doing so with me. You choose Fairfax Home Birth because you want to be heard, educated and truly "at home."
