I am passionate about supporting birthers and families during the postpartum period through compassionate care and nourishment.
I was drawn to this work because I strongly believe that the birth and postpartum period is one of the most important times in a person’s life. There are physical, emotional and spiritual shifts that come from birthing a new life. It brings me joy to support families during this sensitive time to watch them thrive and blossom.
I offer Ayurvedic postpartum care as well as nourishing postpartum meal delivery locally in Toronto. I love to incorporate the variety of holistic healing modalities that I have learned over the years including Herbalism, meditation and Reiki.

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.
My wish is for all birthers to be fully supported, so they can get the rest they need, the nourishment, love, and care, to fully heal, recover, and bond with their little one. This level of care is fundamental in shaping who they are and will become, how they are able to care for themselves and their families, and their greater communities.
I am a Mama of 3, an Ayurvedic bodywork practitioner, a Yoga teacher specializing in pregnancy and postpartum, a Reiki Master, a breast/chest feeding peer support volunteer, and maker of all-natural herbal products that add an extra layer of support to birthers and their families.
All of these beautiful practices and experiences are woven together to provide loving care for birthers and their sweet babes.
The immediate postpartum has my heart.
