Moms Who Inspire: Jill Blakeway

Ever Searched on YouTube for water birth videos?

Reading Time: 7 minutes

Jill Blakeway wears a lot of hats. She’s a wife, mom, doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, the Founder and Director of The YinOva Center, energy healer, herbalist, author, teacher, and the host of CBS Radio’s “Grow. Cook. Heal.

The New York Times has named her one of the city’s top acupuncturists, coining her the “fertility goddess” for the work she does in helping women get pregnant. It has been estimated that Jill has done over 60,000 treatments over the course of her career.

From the moment I started interviewing Jill, I knew I was in for a lively, honest and moving conversation. Jill is not only a driven woman who’s not afraid to take risks, but also an incredible connector, communicator and listener. She has a way of understanding life, people and what truly matters at the end of the day like no one I have ever come in contact with.

I THINK SHE WHO DARES WINS. I THINK LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO BE PARALYZED BY FEAR AND SELF-DOUBT. IT’S OK TO MESS UP, AND IT’S OK TO FAIL. IT’S REALLY ALL ABOUT PICKING YOURSELF UP ONE MORE TIME. – JILL BLAKEWAY

There were so many times during this interview where I got choked up. Not because Jill was saying anything sad but because everything she was saying was about simple beauty.

Her perspective on life, motherhood and relationships came from a place of deep introspection without judgment for herself or others. Hearing her speak of her daughter, Emma, who now works with Jill at YinOva as the Marketing Director was incredibly heart-warming. She joked about their relationship being so different now that her daughter is 26 and a far cry from a baby.

It’s Jill’s openness about her successes and failures, and why to her one does not come without the other that I’m so happy to share the interview with you below.
