Find a trained doula, practitioner or caregiver offering Conscious Postpartum Care!
Hi! I'm Leah, the face & doula behind Sacred Moon Healing! Pregnancy and birth have always fascinated me. I remember being 18 and YouTubing natural childbirth, alternative healing and really just questioning our modern standards of physical & mental healthcare. Along my journey I stumbled across Ayurveda, which immediately resonated with me, and so I began to dive deeper into studying and practicing these ancient traditions. I also began to notice an astonishing rise in the lack of postpartum care offered and its correlation to depression. So when I found out my sisters were pregnant (at the same time), I knew I wanted to support them in the best way possible! I spent time nourishing them in their early postpartum period, not quite knowing exactly what to do, just following my intuition. This was such a beautiful experience that I realized I wanted to become a certified postpartum doula and redirect my path. And that's when the two worlds of Ayurveda and postpartum care merged, bringing me to where I am today! I have had the honor of studying and receiving mentorship from one of the world’s leading natural mama & baby care specialists and advocate for women’s postpartum health, Sarva Blackwell of Inner Sun & Moon. It is such an honor to sit with new mamas as they recover from the incredible transformation of pregnancy and birth!
It is my passion to empower and educate women of all ages to step into their divinity through womb wisdom, subtle therapies & spiritual resilience. My offerings combine ancient & innate wisdom, while utilizing my credentials in the following areas: BS in Exercise Science & Kinesiology, certified Holistic Nutritionist, certified Ayurvedic Postpartum Doula, Yoni Steam Specialist, & RYT 200. I am also pursuing trainings in Craniosacral Therapy to further benefit the mamas I work with through helping restore musculoskeletal reintegration, emotional balance and pelvic health and also help alleviate the discomforts of newborn care and mothering.
I look forward to connecting with you on your postpartum journey.

Jacqueline - the creatress of Sūrya Soma Āyurveda - began her work as an Ayurdoula with the mission of empowering birthers and partners to connect to the Divine Feminine throughout their Sacred Window. With the awareness that our culture is heavily concentrated in yang-like energy and way of being, Jacqueline seeks to support individuals and families in a way that honors the Divine Feminine through education and by inviting rest, rejuvenation, healing and sacredness throughout the postpartum journey. Connecting to the Divine Feminine enables one to celebrate their body, mind, and spirit during and after pregnancy. It further enables one to honor the Self by recognizing the importance of rest and rejuvenation after the powerful and transformative experience of childbirth.
Jacqueline has completed the Ayurvedic Postpartum Caregiver Cohort Program with the Center for Sacred Window Studies just after graduating from the Ayurvedic Institute as an Ayurvedic Practitioner under Dr. Vasant Lad. She has also studied Western Herbalism intensively with 7Song at the Northeast School of Botanical Medicine, and she has her Bachelor’s Degree in Holistic Psychology with a Feminist Perspective.
