I see you there, mama.
You want to birth your precious baby naturally, peacefully, and powerfully.
You want to mother gently and intuitively, as nature intended.
And you want motherhood to be the most expansive, nourishing and beautiful experience of your life.
You’re getting information and advice hurled at you from every direction – and most of it’s confusing, contradictory, and out of alignment with how you want to live and mother.
The only stories you’re hearing are ones of trauma, overwhelm and exhaustion.
But through all that noise, a quiet voice whispers from somewhere deep inside you: there must be a better way.
Oh mama, I’m so glad you’re here. You’re in just the right place.
I’m Dr Jessica Hodgens, and I teach wild women just like you about physiologic birth, natural parenting and conscious mothering, so you can birth and mother with joy, peace and purpose.
I’m an expert researcher with over 10 years of experience in making information accessible and relevant to real people.
I have a PhD in Aboriginal history, I worked for the best part of a decade as an oral historian with Aboriginal communities, and I spent a few years as a Senior Researcher with government.
I direct my research expertise and insatiable appetite for learning towards the problem that obsesses me: how to change the world for the better for mothers, babies and the earth.
I’m a trained doula, postpartum care provider and women’s circle keeper.
And I’m a mama.
The thing that gets me out of bed every morning is the privilege of supporting other mamas.
A Little About Me
I live on the south coast of New South Wales, Australia, cradled between the beautiful Illawarra escarpment and the ocean.
I dream about one day buying a bit of land somewhere in the country with an old farmhouse and sprawling gardens full of herbs and flowers, where I can raise my babies and care-take the land. I can’t imagine anything more healing.
