About Us

"We are our ancestral blueprints, rewritten. We already hold all the keys, to all the doors. We just need to remember how to unlock them!" —Shani

We at JEWEL CHILD help the birthing family realign mind, body and spirit— to invite and promote fluid, harmonious child-birthing experiences.

A Rebozo is a traditional  Mexican shawl, used to assist a pregnant person as back support, during labour, to swaddle and carry babies.

  

Traditionally Midwives, Mothers and Doulas around the world use the Rebozo to wrap around the pregnant mother in a way that serves as a support to her during labour.

JEWEL CHILD is comprised of a sisterhood of women who honour the spirit of Caribbean, Afro-Latiné, Latiné and Indigenous ancestral cultures.

 

By embracing the holistic traditions of our Taíno, Arawak, Aztec, Maya, Garafuna and Carib ancestors we honour the transcendence of their legacy through our reconstructed genes.

The Maya comadrona (doula/midwife) received this sacred call to service by the goddess Ixchel (ee-shell). Ixchel was the goddess of fertility, childbirth and midwifery. This divine purpose allowed the comadrona to connect and communicate with the sacred divine feminine to assist her community of women during the rite of passage into womanhood. 

We use a treasure chest of passed down traditions, from rebozo cloths, massage, acupressure, meditation and visualization, prayer and education to assist all of our clients through this most challenging, beautiful, life changing moment.

The WHO says; Doulas have clinical, meaningful benefits. Doulas help reduce the risk of intervention, postpartum depression and help people become families.

Doula's support their client families in 5 ways, through:

* Knowledge and information
