Mother Blessing: A special event and blessing for expecting moms.
Jennie will guide expectant mothers in a peaceful ceremony to reflect and connect as well as tap into your mother’s intuition as you step into motherhood with grace, peace and confidence. With so much focus in pregnancy on the birth and care of the baby, society often forgets we are also birthing a mother. You deserve a celebration for this milestone in your life. There is so much information to consume, dozens of parenting decisions to make and endless research from all sides confusing you along the way. It’s important for you to stand in your sovereignty and feel confident in the choices you are making. Jennie will teach you how to slow down, block out the noise, and lean into your own innate mother’s intuition.

This 90 minute event will include:

  • Grounding Meditation
  • Prompted Gratitude Journaling
  • Motherhood Intention-setting and Manifestation
  • Tools for Tapping into your Mother’s Intuition
  • Reiki Healing


Hypnobirthing helps teach the tools you will need to experience birthing in an atmosphere of calm relaxation, free of the fear that prevents the muscles of your body from functioning as nature intended them to. In this calm state, your body’s natural relaxant, endorphins, replaces the stress hormones that constrict and cause pain.
