Jacky Bloemraad de Boer’s Bio:

Jacky Bloemraad de Boer is a mother, a wife, CPM (Certified Professional Midwife), a Doula, a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner, a Nutritionist, Herbalist & a Doula Trainer. She lives in both Amsterdam and Cape Town.

Midwife

Jacky is passionate about fertility, pregnancy, childbirth and women’s health and is continually exploring the various aspects of global maternal health and in particular midwifery care and the continuum of care.  Midwifery care can improve maternal outcomes because experience and research has clearly shown that pregnancy and childbirth care which has been de-medicalized and restores dignity and humanity to the process of childbirth by returning the control to the birthing woman has proven to be the safest approach.

Jacky is dedicated to educating midwives, the world needs more midwives and as Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

Jacky has also published a book: A-Z for a Healthy Pregnancy and Natural Childbirth,

How to be True to Yourself as a Mother

Wow so much wisdom on mothering from this wonderful soul. This was a true interview with heart and it was a real honour to have fellow Wellness CouchPodcaster Bridget Wood. You can find more of her gold on Nourishing The Mother with her co-host Julie Tenner who was also on Mum’s the Word recently  – a highly recommended interview also.

Enjoy!

Bridget Wood’s Bio:

Bridget Wood is a writer, speaker, event manager and coach with a vision to raise our collective consciousness through her businesses Suburban Sandcastles and Nourishing The Mother. With studies in media, communications and human behaviour, and ten years spent in the Corporate world, Bridget has an insatiable appetite for knowledge and a desire to understand the bigger picture of how we, and the world, are the way we are, and to empower people to connect to themselves and realise their potential. 

Raising our children to raise ourselves

A mother of two, Bridget reflects that many women feel they lose themselves in early motherhood, but ultimately it’s been where she has found herself. She has a particular interest ‘raising our children to raise ourselves’, recognising how our children’s behaviour, values and needs can trigger feelings in us – our own ‘inner child’. Bridget advocates for children and awakening motherhood to see the gifts of healing our children are offering us, and how our relationships and the world around us offer us a mirror to grow and nurture our authentic selves.

Bridget’s Quote:

“I’m willing and open to seeing and owing to all that I am”
