Profile and Credentials        

Joyce Moxley Thomas, MHA, CPM

(CA Licensed Midwife)

Executive Director

Joyce is a wife and mother of 4 kids: Lynn (33), Liza (29), Jaye (21) - her little 2 ½ lb. miracle!, and Jordan (10) his own miracle after 22 weeks of bedrest & 6 wks premature!

Joyce’s love of caring for “mommies & babies” started when she was a 15 year old “candy-striper” at Research Medical Center in Kansas City, where she received her nurses training. But she knew then she didn’t want to be a nurse. At 22 Joyce, as a young US Navy wife, started working with an Australian midwife and together they provided homebirth services to US Navy wives in Connecticut. After moving to San Diego, Joyce had a private homebirth practice, working with Dr. Richard Butcher a well-known homebirth physician at the time. Together they authored the California Midwifery Pilot Project, HMPP #148 (1983), which would have trained & licensed midwives in 3-year community college-based programs 10 years before the midwives won licensing after decades of persecution & prosecution in California. The present licensing law is based in part on HMPP #148. Joyce and “Dr. B” helped over 100 homebirth babies into the world in the San Diego area 1978 – 1983.

After earning a Masters Degree in Healthcare Administration from the University of LaVerne in 1987 and working in many aspects of healthcare administration, Joyce returned to midwifery in 2004, earning the Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) designation after graduating from the National College of Midwifery, Taos, NM. It is one of the only degree-granting programs approved by the California Medical Board, which licenses midwives here. For details, please go to www.midwiferycollege.org .Returning to her “life’s mission” has been Joyce’s dream for over 20 years – and she made it!


Philosophy and Comments        

At the AquaNatal Birth Spa, we provide the Midwifery Model of Care:

The Midwives Model of Care

The Midwives Model of Care is based on the fact that pregnancy and birth are normal life processes.

The Midwives Model of Care includes:

Monitoring the physical, psychological, and social well-being of the mother throughout the childbearing cycle

Providing the mother with individualized education, counseling, and prenatal care, continuous hands-on assistance during labor and delivery, and postpartum support

Minimizing technological interventions

Identifying and referring women who require obstetrical attention

The application of this woman-centered model of care has been proven to reduce the incidence of birth injury, trauma, and cesarean section.
