Birth DOULA

'The Enchanting Healing Doula'

Doula in Greek means to "serve women".  At EE Healing we take our Doula services to an exceptionally unique level. As an Enchanting Healing Doula, Jennifer, not only serves the mother, but also the partner, &most importantly the highly conscious being that is entering this physical world.  She gently guides and facilitates the parents through each stage of the birthing journey, increasing awareness, strengthening confidence, connecting to inner clarity, & deepening the bonds of love within each relationship as well as to their newest family member by focusing on conquering fears, healing past wounds, establishing an empowering birth plan, preparing for birth (practicing physical postures, relaxation techniques, & managing expectations), full labor support during the entire birth experience (implementing physical & emotional comfort measures), & post birth support for the new family's successes (breastfeeding, debriefing the experience, implementing new family plan, etc.).

 

Jennifer whole heartedly believes that the change we wish to see in our world begins with the creation process (Perinatal, pregnancy, & birth) &it is vital that we guide these loving new beings into this physical realm with purposeful intentions, kind thoughts, gentle mindful actions, & profound connections in order to maintain and honor our spiritual roots and shift societal norms that no longer serve the collective. Science acknowledges that babies in the womb are influenced by the mother's feelings, emotions, thoughts & the birth experience itself shapes the subconscious and physical life for each being, which is carried into other areas of ones' life. This deep level of understanding has influenced the creation of our doula packages, incorporating prenatal yoga, sound healing, & Reiki as essential components for the voyage.

PRENATAL YOGA & Mommy & Me Sessions  

Yoga translates to 'Union', Merging Body-Mind-Spirit Connection; Prenatal Yoga adds another layer of profound connection...Mother connecting to herself as well as to her baby in the womb, deepening her awareness that their hearts are in-sync & beat as One. Each breath, thought & feeling she has, is not only for herself but is felt by her baby. Prenatal Yoga helps to cultivate mindfulness & the experience of selfless expansive love.

*Prenatal Yoga provides baby and mommy incredible gifts, which include: 

  • Deeper connection to Self and to Baby

  • Physical Benefits (decrease aches/pains, create space in the body for growing baby, more energy, deeper breathing capability)

  • Peaceful mind, reduce stress, & anxiety

*Jennifer has discovered profound healing outcomes with clients by merging Restorative & Yin Yoga asanas (postures held for time that are supported with props) and adding Sound, Energy Healing, & deep breathing (pranayama) for the mama while she relaxes in the pose. This allows the meridians (energetic body) to flow optimally, helping the client to fully let go & receive the benefits of all the healing modalities integrating into the body-mind-spirit.
