Your Period is your Super Power!
Hola, Oi, Hallo, Bonjour, Ciao, Salut, Nin Hao, Namaste, Ohayo, Kamusta, Hallå!
How it all began…
If you had of asked me when I left school what I wanted to do with my life, the furthest thing from my mind was – period coach, menstrual cycle educator or natural fertility teacher. Seriously! I was the tom-boy who use to duck tape her boobs flat and only wore a skirt because it was school policy. Now almost 2 decades on and you’re here reading this. (lucky you!)
Like you, I have a cycle story and it’s far been smooth sailing. This journey began when my first period arriving at the age of 15.5, the day before swimming carnival. Not long after this I started the hormonal contraceptive pill and the 12 menstrual years following this are a complete blur. It wasn’t until I came off this very hormonal contraception that I had an awakening. A cyclical awakening.
After 9 months of amenorrhea, a PCOS diagnosis I quickly threw myself into discovering the menstrual cycle. Already ready working as a women’s health coach I immediately became aware of the global lack of both menstrual cycle education and support. Boom, in this very moment my purpose exploded.
Fast forward to today and my training over the past 15 years in Women’s Health, Nutrition, Ayurveda, Ancestral Health, Wellness Coaching, Ayurvedic Psychology and Spirituality, allow me to draw on the tools you need to deepen your cyclical awareness. Knowing how you feel throughout your cycle can dramatically transform your life within weeks. Your Period is your monthly health update, and your cycle is a feedback cycle.
For too long we’ve been taught to live in tune with the males 24 hour body clock – which simply put, does not work for the female body. It’s time to stop, listen and connect!
What my friends wish you knew about me –
– Recently I purchased a VW Van my dad calls Herbie, I gutted him and completely DIY converted him into a camper van thanks to the support of YouTube! Some may refer to it as an office on wheels. Yep, I’m now officially a cabinet maker. Check out these videos.
– In 2020 I faced one of the most challenging cycle experiences of my life, pregnancy termination. This re-birthed me in ways I never knew I possible. I recorded this about.
– Daily you’ll find me in my veggie garden, interviewing podcast guests, working with clients or in the ocean.
– My family describe me as; the crazy ass dance queen, who positively lights up a room. She’s powerful, gentle, strong a complete weirdo and unapologetic about her food boundaries.
– Before Wellsome I was a swimwear fashion designer, followed by a professional photographer and then nutritional food science formulator.
– My contraceptive option is: natural fertility awareness. It changed my life! (I teach this here)
– The most challenging aspect of adapting cyclical living for me was embracing REST during Menstruation.
– After 100+ episodes every time I sit to record a podcast episode, I still get nervous!
– I met the man of my dreams on a dating app, yep I’m totally new age like that.
– My cycles been far from perfect. My previous biggest cycle challenges were acne, delayed ovulation and irregular cycles. I know LOVE the post menstrual feeling as I glide into Inner Spring on Day 6 and the day or two before I bleed again as my energy surges for a final peak before I turn inward.
Inspired by my journey with PCOS and recent pregnancy termination journey, and quest to discover what works best for the female body, my teachings guide you to tap into your own innate inner wisdom to uncover what works best for you.
I know, you’re probably wondering ‘How-on-earth-do-I-do-that-Jema?!’.
The short version? By reconnecting with your body, and learning about the fundamentals of your menstrual cycle—hint, it’s so much more than just your period.
Trust me; once you understand what’s going on physiologically, nutritionally, emotionally and spiritually, you’ll feel empowered by your newfound body awareness.
My coaching style is down-to-earth, real (sometimes sandy feet with salty beach hair) and without the fluff. My teachings are analogy-filled, helping to make the complicated stuff practical, easy and fun!
I’ve unboxed the (often) misunderstood menstrual cycle (hormones, health, body, weight, cravings, moods) and spread it out across a juicy feast of courses and resources that will amplify your daily health, body awareness and vitality.
My training in Women’s Health, Nutrition, Natural Contraception & Natural Fertility, Ayurveda, Ancestral Health, Wellness Coaching, Ayurvedic Psychology and Spirituality, allow me to draw on the tools you need to deepen your presence and level of self-awareness.
Would you love to live more abundantly with a greater connection to yourself?
