Meet us.

Jessica Smith, Owner, Nurse, IBCLC, Birth-Postpartum Doula

Hello there, I’m Jessica, a nurse, IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant), Certified Birth and Postpartum Doula, and Certified Breastfeeding Educator. I’m also a rural momma of four littles living on our regenerative farm in the Palouse region of eastern Washington.

I started Blomma Momma (Blomma in Swedish means bloom or flower) to provide support for the community with a passion for health and wellness especially surrounding Prenatal and Perinatal times in life. I believe motherhood is a vital time in our life that shapes us or in other words causes us to “bloom” in ways we maybe never expected.

My interest in wellness, birth, babies and maternal health started from a young age. During high school and college I taught swim lessons and worked at a longterm care facility as well as a special needs home. Upon graduation I worked as a school nurse, pediatric home-care nurse, and a minor-care/ready-care nurse. But, soon my passion for the healthcare, or rather dis-ease care system began to wane. I was constantly trying to get my patients outdoors to experience the world and nature around them. I wanted to help them live healthy, balanced lifestyles. My passion for getting back to nature and our roots continues throughout my own life and blends into my work. This is why I take a “holistic” approach. Through my pediatric work, I cared for many previous NICU babies with unique challenges, in which I saw a vast difference in the ones who were fed breastmilk. This led me to dive deeper into the lactation world and fueled my love for working with families through difficult times.

When my own journey with motherhood began, I was awakened to the fact that in our culture there is a disconnect between birth and postpartum. Like many, I prepared for the birth but never really gave much thought to postpartum. While planning for birth is important, planning for the postpartum period is even more important. I found myself struggling with lack of resources and unable to ask for help. I struggled with breastfeeding, low supply, and ended up supplementing. Through help of doctors and lactation consultants we ended up saving my breastfeeding experience for two years and then was able to successfully tandem nurse when baby #2 arrived!

I experienced birth trauma and postpartum anxiety & depression. I struggled to find balance and healing again after each baby. I came across Julia Jones Newborn Mother’s Collective, Ayurveda Postpartum care and found the missing link in my postpartum experience. Through the wisdom of ancient traditions and scientific role of Oxytocin, I learned what we have missed in our culture. While there’s much from ancient traditions and culture, we can’t apply to our modern lifestyle there are two culturally universal things we can do, help and support the new mother and nutrient dense, warm prepared meals. Help them seek the things to inspire and bring joy!

From there, my passion in birth work and postpartum took a different meaning to me. I became Birth Doula certified and a Lactation Educator. My work as a doula has caused me to look deeper at my own healing so I can show up for my clients with positive energy. As your doula and your health advocate, my goal is to support you through your experience. I work with my clients to apply what feels right for you and your needs. I assist in making this transitional time positive and assist to getting back into balance holistically. I want to guide you where necessary with an open mind well as empower you and promote healthy lifestyle.

Hailey Scheinder, RN, Birth-Postpartum Doula

My passion is in providing evidence-based information to allow families to feel confident in the choices they make for themselves throughout the transition into motherhood, whether it is their first baby or third. As a birth doula, I want families to be prepared and ask the right questions, know their options, and be active participants in their care. Providing physical and emotional support during the birth is only a small part of what I do, as I spend a lot of time with families prior to the birth getting to know what is important to them and preparing them for the many different ways birth can go. But my care does not stop there-postpartum is as important, if not more than the birth. It is a time where mothers feel vulnerable and need a lot of support, whether it’s through listening to their experiences, providing resources, education, meals, basic housework, or whatever else the mother may need in the moment.

Jessica was a huge help in making my breastfeeding journey successful! She had many tips and tricks to make the process smoother. Breastfeeding is very vulnerable and I always felt very comfortable with her. I would highly recommend utilizing her services and I know that I will definitely use her help again with future babies!

First time momma

I met with Jessica before my son was born, and she came over multiple times after he was born to help me with nursing difficulties. I truly think that without her I would not have been able to succeed in breastfeeding. She is so knowledgeable and shared so much great information with me and was always great about answering my silly questions (even when she was on vacation). I would highly recommend her to any one of my friends and/or family!

Jessica has been an awesome lactation consultant for our family. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that her visits were covered by our insurance, and she would come to our home! She provided us with some breastfeeding education prior to birth, and then came to our home again to check baby’s latch and weight gain after birth. She is knowledgeable about bottles and pacifiers that resemble the breast as well. As a first time mom, it was great to be reassured that our breastfeeding journey was off to a good start. I highly recommend Jessica’s services for all mamas!

Jessica was very helpful and had lots of suggestions leading up to and after the birth. During delivery she was a calm guide and her presence helped a lot!

Jessica went above and beyond for my husband and I. My husband was unsure about getting a doula, but after we met with her, he knew that she would be such great help to us before, during, and after delivery. We are very thankful for her, as she helped educate us and help us through labor as I was set on having a natural hospital birth. Jessica was always right by my side helping me through each contraction. She was always quick to respond to texts and offer so much help and insight to labor and nursing! We highly recommend her for your next birthing experience! 🙂

I thought I would let you know we are now exclusively breastfeeding (except for when dad watches baby) and hardly anymore gas problems! So glad we came for help when we did!
