Hi there! I am Jamie and I am a Health & Wellness Coach for Moms. I am passionate about self-care and helping my clients establish healthy habits that last. I teach busy moms how to manage their time and develop a healthy mindset, so they can prioritize their own self-care and avoid burnout while being an amazing caregiver. As a mom of three, I get that it can be a challenge to carve out "me time". But honestly, I have found that the best way to look after your family and those you care about is to look after yourself, too.

Raven Thomas

Fertility Specialist

Breastfeeding counselor (CBC)

Birth Doula

Postpartum Doula

Cloth Diapering Educator

Antepartum Doula

I am a holistic birth-worker, certified breastfeeding specialist and natural parenting advocate. I assist women and families with fertility, prenatally, during labor/birth and postpartum. I entered into this work after my son was born, but it was the journey to conceiving him that brought me here. I went on a holistic healing journey after being diagnosed with infertility, PCOS and endometriosis. Doctors said that I would never be able to conceive naturally. I had this "crazy" faith that I could heal holistically, despite all the odds. I journeyed through learning a new way of living, and growing spiritually. Once I NATURALLY conceived my son, I started learning about alternatives to traditional baby products and a more gentle, natural parenting approach. This is how I became interested in all the things (such as baby wearing, attachment parenting, cloth diapering, etc!) I am very passionate about this work, as birth work is in my DNA. My great-great grandmother was a midwife in south Georgia. I am always thinking of ways to reach more people and educate other about the maternal mortality rate in the US. This work is my passion!
