About Me

I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 2012, I am also a Birth Doula and Childbirth Educator. As a Massage Therapist, I focus on improving and maintaining the overall function of women in their birthing year and women who wish to become pregnant. I’m passionate about empowering women to take ownership of their pregnancy and birth. As a mother and grandmother, I have learned that each birth is an individual experience and each mother and family should be treated with a unique set of tools.

 

I started my career studying nursing. But, after about a year of study and experience, I decided that this was not for me! To be clear, I do believe that there is a place for medical intervention when absolutely necessary however, it is a fact that all countries who rank highest for infant and maternal health rely most on the fact that pregnancy and birth are normal life events.  

 

I decided to start the Doula certification process through through Dona International in 2018 because, in my years as a massage therapist, I have worked with many pregnant women who commented that they wish they could have their massage therapist with them during labor. I thought about it , and it just makes sense that they would want the continuity of care they have received throughout pregnancy during their birth as well. Since I have already been with them the whole way and know what their body responds to best, it just seems natural that I continue that care through birth.

It is my goal to help women make decisions based on knowledge and consent, however they plan to give birth. When a woman is educated and supported during pregnancy, birth and postpartum it can be an empowering, incredible experience for them.  On the other hand, when a woman isn’t supported or doesn’t feel like they are in the loop during pregnancy, birth and postpartum, it can feel almost debilitating, scary and sometimes traumatizing.

 

I want to help women have a positive birth experience – one that even if it doesn’t go the way they had planned, they still feel completely satisfied that they were part of the process. My goal is to educate, encourage and empower women throughout their pregnancy, birth and postpartum.  I want women to look back at the experience knowing that their bodies were respected and they were cared for.

 

What you get?

You get the knowledge, skills and experience of a Doula, Childbirth Educator, Licensed Massage Therapist and Mom. My diversity in training and expertise provide a unique experience for expecting families to gain the knowledge, confidence, skills, and support needed during the entire birth process. I look forward to giving you the practical, evidence-based tools you need to have the birth you desire! Whether you are interested in massage therapy, a birthing class or would like to work with me as your doula, I’ll provide the emotional, educational and physical support you need.

"Jewly made my labor and delivery experience. The support she provided to my husband and I was phenomenal, we wouldn’t have made it through as well as we did without her. When things got complicated with baby having shoulder dystocia, Jewly provided emotional support to my husband and I and made sure we were taken care of. Everyone is safe and healthy and Jewly's support helped to ensure this positive outcome.”
