My name is Jaide, that's me being ecstatic about living an authentic life.
Thank you for being here
I am a Birth & Postpartum Doula, Clinical Herbalist, Yogi, Artist & Writer; with a passion for finding beauty in this life. (mostly in Nature)
I make plant based period panties with one of my besties @moonbloomers;
and I'm currently growing my family tree!
I'm not so low key about how much i love all things pregnancy & birth; from home to the hospital - I'm overflowing with information about the entire process; I'm especially in love with the unraveling that comes with faith and trust in the process of the birth portal; and am a living testament to the beauty of life on the wild side. I love wild pregnany, free birth, and raising babies close to the land. I'm blessed with "the village" of our collective vision - to do this - with other women'; to live alongside a community of birth keepers, healers, and free thinking femmes.
I began walking this path over a decade ago, when I moved out West, for University; where I first encountered Hippies! and Yoga! Through exploring my connection to Nature, and my yoga practice, now 11 years in the making; I helped clear pathways in my energetic body, which lead me towards a life focused on healing...It seems as if opportunity for growth came knocking thereafter- I attended a Birth Doula training, a 200 hr + YTT, a 90 hr + Prenatal YTT, all within a year of each other.
When I moved back East in 2015; I was called to work with Plant Medicine. Gardening, Farming, and working at an Herb Shop, while still teaching yoga and attending births.
I took a hiatus from this work in 2016, for an intensive program, in which I graduated with a diploma in Advanced Clinical Herbalism, and my life has never been the same...
Since then; I have over 2,000+ hours of Clinical Herbal work under my belt, and continue to serve my community with herbs, diet/lifestlye coaching, yoga, and birth work.
I love wildcrafting/medicine making, and offer beautiful, small batch medicines, available in my online shop
I'm passionate about sharing my passions; if you have any questions about myself, my practice, or how you can benefit from natural therapies, please reach out!
