I specialize in Homebirth and also love supporting LGBTQ+ families. Maura Jo has multiple certifications and extensive training to support your family before, during and after your birth.

Some lives are long, others are short. I'm here to support your birth, regardless.

The word REIKI (pronounced RAY-KEY) is two Japanese words. There are several translations, due to the nature of the Japanese language, but one would be REI meaning "Universal Source," KI meaning "Life Force Energy ." As a hands-on (or distance), spiritual healing method, it is a complement to medical care and a great way to increase our relaxation response.
