I AM JAKE LEISKE WILLIS
Well, that's my name, but WHO AM I and what about me would interest you in my story, tips, experiences, pain, triumphs, fears, opinions, suggestions, MY TAKE on anything?
I keep coming back to the same answer. I AM A WOMAN WHO GOT PREGNANT, STAYED PREGNANT AND GAVE BIRTH TO A HEALTHY BABY FOR THE FIRST TIME AT 51 with a 5% chance of doing so; THAT'S WHO! I won the prize. I did it. I'm alive, Avalon; my daughter is alive.
Childbirth is a freaking miracle and no joke at ANY age, but it certainly doesn't get easier the older you get. That is just a fact! But, the brilliant part is that IT IS POSSIBLE, and Avalon and I are living proof.
I learned that being intentionally persistent, determined, curious, resilient, open and tenacious are all fantastic qualities to possess and practice daily on this journey. YES, it is a continuous practice! I learned much about the fertility process by sourcing and building my village of genius' in Western Medicine, Eastern Medicine, Acupuncture, Mind/Body, and Energy Work. I learned how to heal my heart and brain to make room for a baby in my body and life. All of the above, a great deal of trial and error, just the right amount of Woo Woo, and a whole lot of never giving up, in my opinion, delivered the desired results.
I've been where you are and am here to tell you that the sky IS NOT falling. I'd love to share what worked for me along the way to keep me believing, staying healthy and enjoying the journey.
But that's not where the story ends. All my focus was on creating life and getting and staying pregnant. What was NOT top of mind was once the baby arrived, WHAT THEN? How do I want to parent? All I knew as Avalon grew and developed was that I felt helpless. I knew it didn't feel right to spank, and I was not too fond of the version of me who was always yelling and threatening, coercing and punishing, or offering rewards for every good behaviour, but HOW could I get results without using these tools? Most of all, there was such a lack of connection in those moments.
It hurt and was no fun!
I have some beautiful news if you can relate to anything you have read. There is a way to parent that will leave you peacefully empowered. This method has a foundation in brain science, non-violent communication and emotional intelligence. What the hell does that even mean? It means RELIEF.
I was drawn to this parenting method because I wanted a deeper connection with my child and to tame my crazy as a parent. In addition, the information saved my marriage and introduced me to a loving relationship with myself as a side effect.
I became a Certified Parenting Coach with the Jai Institute because I learned 1st hand that it works. So now I am passionate about sharing this information cause parenting doesn't have to be so freaking hard if you have the tools and understand that becoming a better person translates directly into becoming a better parent.
I'm Jake Leiske Willis, and I can't wait to support you on your incredible journey of motherhood manifestation and peaceful parenting....it's a doozy!
"I want to say going over everything today has left me with an abundance of excitement. The possibilities that can be created for my child if she doesn’t have to seek what she needs and gets it straight from us - her home are unfathomable. I often imagine how far it would have taken me if I did not have to dig and fill my confidence wells in this life. I’m very, very excited!"
