Whether you are pregnant or not, what is one food you ALWAYS love eating over the holidays? 😍
I'm working today, but I am oh so grateful for the amazing work that I get to do. Plus… I’m going to see this beautiful seven-year-old today. (Happy Birthday Libby 🥳) She helped me give her mama a treatment on Tuesday and did a great job.
More gratitude posts to come! 🧡
If you want to show a mom you’re grateful for her, bring a meal this week she can enjoy while pregnant! 🥘
Every Friday, we get the chance to hold yoga classes for moms and their babies- and thanks to groups like J Baby, sometimes we get to make special visits around the city too! 😍 Wherever it may be, we’re always happy to give moms the reset they so rightly deserve. 🧘♂️ Learn more about our classes AND private session at OmBalance.com!

Meet Cheryl Johnson!
She wears many hats. She’s an Ayurvedic doula, she teaches + practices yoga, she teaches childbirth classes and is also a HypnoBirthing educator!
She is a wealth of knowledge and has the most beautiful spirit! We couldn’t be more excited that she will be at Grounded Wellness on Thursday’s starting in August, offering a Traditional Abhyanga treatment.
It’s a classic Ayurvedic treatment that anoints the body with warm herbal oil that helps to clarify, revitalize, relax, nourish & cleanse the mind & body. She works with energy points as well to help balance energy flow.
Cheryl was trained at Rasa Ayurveda Women’s Clinic in Kerala, India. She’s passionate about using her knowledge she gained during her training to help women.
Soon, you’ll be able to schedule with her on our online portal just like you do for chiropractic visits with Dr. Nicole & Dr. Margie or facials with .beauty.skincare_ , but for now if you are interested in scheduling with Cheryl, email her at: [email protected]. We will update you as soon as her online profile is up and live!
We can’t wait for you to meet Cheryl and see why we love her so much for yourself! 🥰
Doula meet-ups… they’re the BEST! 😍
Wild Child Birth Services
✨Monthly Doula Meetup✨
Once a month the OmBalance Collective gets together to collaborate, compare notes, and learn! I’m super appreciative of this time that our mentor pours into us and for the opportunity to bounce ideas off each other and get some much needed input and support!
It’s a pretty special thing when you find your village, and I’m so thankful for this part of mine ♥️
If you know a mom who’s been trying to find a yoga class fit for her, you know where to send her! 🤰 🧘♂️
Two words at OmBalance…
Hand. Made!! 🤲 🌿 🧡
Did you know that when you book us for Ayurvedic services, pretty much everything you get is hand made in house?
From the oils, to the food, down to the cotton belly wraps we cut, fold, and stamp!
We take pride in making sure you are receiving the best care possible, full love and intention.
In my happy place… and happy pose. 🥰 🧘♂️
As a general rule…
It’s best to hire a doula not only with experience… but decades worth of passion to go with it. 🖤 🤍 To book Cheryl for your birth in the Fall or Winter, just visit us at Linktree.com/OmBalance!

Pumpkin hunting with mom. 🎃 🧡
Tomorrow morning! Who will be joining us for our most popular class? 🧘♂️
New table ~
She’s a beauty! I went with a hydraulic table specifically for prenatal clients, mindfulness / hypnotherapy clients & because most of y’all are shorter than me. The table drops down to a regular chair height and I can lift to help me be better with my body mechanics. Win, win!
I purchased through Body Logic out of Mesquite. The process was seamless. Ryan went above and beyond. It’s a family business - love that! He and his father in delivered & set it up. Now, that’s first class service!
Ryan has no idea I’m including him on this post. Just wanted to share. When receiving great service, it’s always nice to share.
Of course, reach out if you have any questions about services.
Why do we encourage our moms to eat during labor? Because you’re going to need all the energy you can get! 💪

What a wonderful, well-thought-out piece from a lady I deeply love and respect. 🥰 Every mama in DFW, please read + share!
Let’s flip the narrative. When we compare two low risk women with healthy pregnancies side by side, the location of birth makes the difference in the number of interventions and risks they have.
When a woman has a midwife and plans to birth in the community setting (home or birth center) she is much less likely to:
1) be induced. Induction is the most common factor in primary cesareans.
2) have continuous monitoring which has been shown to increase cesareans without improving the condition of the baby.
3) have an IV which affects the mothers mobility and results in more use of pain medications.
4) have unnecessary vaginal exams which increase infection and also increase the likelihood that their labor will be augmented with synthetic hormones which have consequences.
Even the emotional shift that happens when a healthy woman walks into a hospital and has to wear a mask and gown can alter her hormones making it more likely to get synthetic hormones.
Birth in the community setting is built on the midwifery model of care. We don’t use hormones or artificial means to start labor. Women move without restriction. Nourishment is encouraged. And the cesarean rate is a small fraction of what it would be for the same woman in a different setting.
If you want to know if yoga really does heal your mind and body… just ask ANY mom you know! 🤰 🧡 🧘♂️
A friend to moms & dads alike. 🥰
Being a doula means making sure everyone that wants and needs to be there for mom is cared for- including you, dads! Thanks for desiring to be there for your partner, and we can’t wait to partner with both of you at your next birth. (Booking for doula services at OmBalance.com 🤰)
For those who may be asking …
What does it mean to be an AyurDoula?”
I can’t recommend this podcast with my friend Bethany Stricker enough. 🧡 I get to tell my whole story, and why Ayurveda is so important to the way I care for moms! Give it a listen, won’t you?
