Hi, I’m Jess. I am a wife, herbalist, and homeschool mom of 4.
A birthkeeper is a servant to women of childbearing age and keeper of the sacred wisdom surrounding physiological birth. After experiencing two traumatic cesarean births, I devoured any resource I could to learn more about physiological birth. Armed and empowered with that knowledge, I birthed our third and fourth children at home. While I know each woman may make different choices when it comes to birth, I believe everyone deserves the right to informed consent, respect, and dignity no matter what.
The need for traditional caring, sensitive and knowledgeable birth support during this modern era is becoming more and more apparent. I journey along side the woman and her partner during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum and feel honored to be able to contribute my expertise to women and their families in the St. Louis metropolitan area.
