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.
Jem is passionate about supporting parents physically and emotionally in the sacred pregnancy and postpartum window, and helping them to learn the practices and embodied skills they need to Thrive — in all aspects of their personal health, as well as in their relationships.
She has seen how common it is for unhelpful, often trauma-related patterns to get re-triggered in pregnancy and postpartum, and is especially passionate about helping clients identify and transform the stress-based patterns that no longer serve them — including helping very independent women to rest, ask for, and accept loving postpartum support!
She loves supporting clients in breaking generational cycles of trauma and chronic stress (including hyper-independence, trust issues, health challenges, mood “disorders”, physical & emotional triggers), so they can feel empowered to be the people and parents they want to be, with practical skills to nourish their own and their families’ well-being, so the next generation can enjoy more vibrant health, emotional freedom, and deeper connection.
She deeply believes that when parents have the support and tools they need to balance their own nervous systems with compassionate understanding, parenting becomes more joyful and easeful, and the effects reverberate throughout their families and communities, to allow us to co-create a more harmonious world in which we All can Thrive.
Jem is a trauma-informed Daoist sacred embodiment facilitator, licensed acupuncturist and herbalist. Her practice integrates classical Chinese medicine, holistic nutrition, meditation, body-centered healing practices (massage, qigong, acupuncture, breathwork, Jade egg yoni exercises, & Daoist inner alchemy), and feminine power coaching to support her clients to thrive in their own health and in family life.
She loves working 1:1, both online and in person, as well as in groups and online classes, to make these practices as accessible as possible to all who desire them.
My mission is to change how we view postpartum recovery and support mothers through the first forty days postpartum and beyond.
I help pregnant women plan a nourishing postpartum experience & support new mothers with holistic in-home mama care services and online coaching. My goal is to help you build your village so you can feel happy, loved and supported. My focus is on helping women and their families navigate the postpartum period known in many cultures as the first forty days or sacred window. I do this by providing holistic mama care and nourishing support. This support helps you shift from feeling overwhelmed and anxious to feeling loved and nurtured during your postpartum. When YOU feel nourished, you can be a better mama for your baby and other children, if you have them.
