Placenta Encapsulation Specialist®
Jessica Johnston - Hawthorn, VIC
My name is Jessica Johnston. I am Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner, certified Doula and Placenta Encapsulation Specialist®.
I am a managing director or a multi-disciplinary clinic in Hawthorn, Victoria where we offer Chiropractic Care, Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.
In 2011 I graduated with a double degree in Chinese Medicine and Human Biology at RMIT University in Melbourne, completed my Doula training through the Australian Doula College and became certified in placenta encapsulation from PBiU.
I have always had a strong passion for women’s health and I love to educate, support and empower women.
Initially after first graduating, I used my knowledge of Chinese herbal medicine and Acupuncture to help women take charge of their health & fertility journeys.
Then naturally, as I started working with more pregnant women, my love of women’s health and fertility expanded to a love of pregnancy and post natal support – This is when I gravitated towards doula study.
Once completing my doula program, and assisting women through their pregnancy/birth/post-natal journeys, my interest in placenta encapsulation developed.
Considering Zi He Che (The steaming method of placenta preparation) has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years – I feel like I have come full circle and feel I can adequately support women through many different life experiences and challenges and especially the journey involved in pregnancy and post partum.
