About Dr. Jessica


When I first became pregnant, I was completely unprepared for the extent to which becoming a mother would transform me.


I left my job as a senior researcher in a high-rise city building. I threw myself with all my heart and soul into the sacred work of mothering.


And I turned my research expertise and ferocious appetite for learning towards the problem that obsesses me: how to remake the world in the service of life, and those who caretake it – mothers.


Now I teach other wild women about physiological birth, natural parenting and conscious mothering. My Big Vision is to create a hub of evidence-based, soul-centred resources to support wild mothers (that’s you!) to birth and mother with joy, peace and purpose.


Most days, you can find me pottering around at home with my children Ned and Cedar and my beloved border collie Dug, gardening, crafting, reading, writing and thinking.
