Jay Kelly has been supporting women and their partners through Pregnancy and Birth for over 10 years. With 4 children of her own, and 2 surrogate babies carried, she has experienced many types of birth; from a traumatic assisted delivery with her first, to an orgasmic birth with her second, then identical twins born naturally 10 minutes apart, a subsequent emergency cesarean, and finishing off on an empowering VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean). From a 4lb 10oz to a 10lber, but not in that order!
Jay is passionate that all women feel supported, informed, heard and that their choices and feelings are respected. She supported her first Doula client and baby 15 years ago, and now only takes on a couple of doula clients per year.
With weekly pregnancy relaxation classes, monthly Hypnobirthing and Birth Preparation groups, and working in her specialist area of Birth Trauma relief, Jay has lots to offer in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
She also works internationally online.
Six years ago Jay's clients led her down the fertility route, working with more and more women and men who were having infertility issues. There is a lot that can be done to support these individuals on their journeys emotionally and physically, and no one should walk this alone.
It was listening to the heartbreaking stories being told which led Jay to being a surrogate. Having experienced the stresses of Assisted Conception and IVF herself, it gives her a deeper undertanding of what her clients are going through physically. Though a large number of clients work with her to improve their fertility for natural conception, with techniques such as The Fertile Body Method (Fertility Hypnosis)
Aside of TTC, Jay works with women through all stages of their menstrual life, from puberty to menopause. From helping rebalance a tilted uterus, problem periods, helping support those with Endometriosis, fibroids, PCOS etc, using a mixture of mind-body work, but especially Mizan Therapy (often known as abdominal or fertility massage), and supporting them through dietary tweaks to optimise their body and their hormone system.
Jay holds a monthly Women's Listening Circle, as together we are stronger and happier.
Because being a woman should be magical.
The core of all services, support and offerings come from a background of Mindfulness & Meditation, EFT (tapping), Hypnotherapy & NLP, Mizan Therapy (traditional reproductive abdominal massage), Reiki and a great big love of crystals!
