It's nice to meet you! 

Hey, I'm Jaimie - and I'm here to help you enter motherhood with confidence. After realizing the medical maternal wellness system was not set up to help mothers and babies thrive, I made it my personal mission to do my part to help bridge the gaps of maternal health and wellness support. 

As a new mother who just experienced a difficult and unwanted cesarean birth, I dreamed of a peaceful breastfeeding experience to bond with my new baby. Instead I was met with pain, misery, an angry baby, and heartbreak. The support structures I assumed would be in place to solve these issues were not able to help us reach our goals, and even seemed in many ways to undermine my innate desire to nurse my baby. 

After finding mother-to-mother support that dragged me through the darkest days of my postpartum experience, I decided that more support was needed in our world, and instead of conforming to and trying to fix a broken structure within the medical model, I would step outside of that model to help mothers where they were -  at home. 

This is why I embarked on a journey to become a birth doula and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. After welcoming 5 babies, I have learned that wellness exists most naturally when we find the right balance between allopathic medicine and holistic wellness - ultimately learning two things: informed consent and trusting our intuition. 

My goal is to help mothers find this balance as they seek wellness in pregnancy, postpartum and beyond.

Mission

to inspire and educate women to connect with their God-given intuition and enter motherhood with confidence. 

Vision

I believe that every woman should be able to embrace pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding as a beautiful experience unique to our Creator's design and call for our life. However, I acknowledge that various circumstances can make these natural experiences challenging on many different levels. As a birth doula and lactation consultant, my goal is to help mothers prepare for birth and breastfeeding, navigate challenges, and made empowered decisions they feel confident in, despite what the rest of the world might be telling them. Ultimately, I want to support mothers in understanding their bodies, their babies, and using their intuition to make informed decisions they feel confident in.
