The Journey Begins

Parenting starts before birth. Understanding that the unborn child is conscious,  aware, and imprinting from its environment for survival or thriving allows for parents to move through pregnancy in a more mindful way. We merge new research on neuroscience, embryology, midwifery, epigenetics, pre & perinatal birth psychology, ecopsychology and consciousness studies with practical tools that assist in reaching a birth that best supports the mind, body, and spirit of mom, baby, and partner. Through this lens, the impact of birth is one that brings choice, empowerment, education, and attachment to healthy relationships.


The Family Center offers whole-being support

from preconception, pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and parenting.

Every experience in life, from the beginning, is part of the essence of who we are. It's the outcome of the experience, embodied or disembodied,

that gives the texture of how we move through and see the world.

-Jennifer Jeffcoat, Founder of Mindful Ways

Alternative Medicine: Preconception to Postpartum

Complementary Alternative Medicine (CAM) treats the whole mamma-to-be, taking her nutritional, emotional, spiritual, and physical health and well-being into consideration. CAM also emphasizes the body's ability to have a physiological birth utilizing herbs, massage, meditation, hydrotherapy and other natural choices. The CAM approach helps decrease your need for medical intervention. Includes nutrition therapy, homeopathy, & herbs.

Birth Hypnotherapy


Imagine for a moment how your baby's birth would be if you went into labor with calm confidence, knowing you have the skills to relax deeply, stay focused, and work with the rhythm and flow of birth effectively. Imagine that your partner was equally confident in helping you stay relaxed, and feeling supported in ways that nurture you. It is truly possible, utilizing the power of your body-mind connection. This is what Hypnosis for Birth offers birthing moms and their partners.


Hypnosis for Birth Helps to:

· Reduce/Modify your perception of Pain

· Build your confidence and calmness

· Diminish fears and anxiety

· Reduce/eliminate the need for medication in labor

· Reduce the need for interventions (abdominal birth, forceps, etc.)

· Learn to very quickly and deeply relax and focus

· Expand your emotional and mental control in labor

· Smooth the transition into parenting

Awakened Birth Doula

Whether you are planning a home or hospital birth, hiring a professional labor support companion is one of your most important considerations. In our opinion, all parents need the continuous support of a trained and experienced professional!


Mindful birthing means working with the body’s physiological and instinctual process in childbirth, with an understanding of the Wholeness of birth. A mindful birth doula will support, guide, and educate expecting mothers and partners on their own birth path with the least amount of intervention possible, while protecting the well-being of mother and baby.


Our services include 2 prenatal 24/7 on call at 37 weeks, phone support, with you throughout birth, and 1 postpartum visit

Awakened Postpartum Doula

Mindful Postpartum Doula means working with the natural and instinctual process in bonding and attachment for baby, mom, and partner. A mindful postpartum doula will support, guide, and educate mothers and partners on their own parenting path with guidance and support for this new family dynamic and rhythm.

Mindful Postpartum Doulas study biodynamic embryology, epigenetics, pre & perinatal birth psychology, motor development in infants, understanding baby language, the natural physiology of birth, biological breastfeeding, sleep patterns and parenting styles. With these studies they understand the dynamics of parenting and how the birth process plays a role in relation to baby, mom, and partner. Mindful postpartum Doulas know the most important element for a calm baby and mom is the state of the Autonomic Nervous System, either mom is calm and fully supported or in a survival state of fear. This will be the baby's understanding of the environment; s/he will synchronize with mom’s system, no matter what the state.

Awakened Bond & Attachment Therapy

Mindful Bonding & Attachment Connections is a therapy method for infants and their families supporting re-patterning of the primitive bonding period, that was lost or compromised. Due to separation at birth for newborn procedures, premature birth, C-Section, time spent in the NICU, mother feeling dis-empowered and out of control during birth, along with the presence of medical intervention, brings about many stressors on the infant and family systems. These stressors are the first impressions of relationships and can cause dysregulation within the system of the infant and family.

When the natural sequence at birth is compromised the dysregulated system of the infant shows up in many ways that can leave a family feeling disconnected and out of rhythm.

What our families are saying

The first day my husband and I met Jennifer at her office, she put a calming feeling through our souls. We knew right then, she was the one for us! It was a pleasure getting to know Jennifer before the actual birth, during our prenatal visits. She is very knowledgeable in all aspects of Birth, Homeopathy, Herbs, Nutrition, & Placenta Encapsulation.
