Pregnancy is a funny thing. For many, it’s a painful, tiring, but wonderful and magical experience where they get to bring new life to the world. For others, it can become one of the most traumatic experiences of their lives.
Jessica McKeown understands both sides of the experience very well. She works with couples in three stages of the pregnancy experience:
- As they’re trying to get pregnant, she works with the parents to remove any blocks that may be preventing the baby from coming to them.
- As they’re on their way to giving birth, she works to make sure the pregnancy is as healthy and happy as possible for both the baby and the parents.
- After circumstances like stillbirth, miscarriages, and abortions, she works with the parents to communicate between the baby and those involved to help ease the trauma that comes with those situations.
I think my former self would be giving me hugs and high fives for leaving something secure and stable to go follow my heart and live the life I meant to!Jessica McKeown
She recently started her business, moving from her previously laid-out path in marketing & communications, and has already accomplished so much.
Of course, like all other entrepreneurs, the journey hasn’t always been easy. She’s struggled with things like time management, imposter syndrome, and confusion around her overall brand message.
So, without further ado…
Read her inspiring journey in the full interview below:
Ashley Hoffman (AH): So, tell me what got you into becoming a Spirit Baby Medium?
Jessica McKeown (JM): I had a deeply profound spiritual experience in which I sought my life purpose, and the answer I received is that I’m here to help usher in the next generation of babies in a healthy and healing way.
I have always loved the energy and spirit of children, and much of my previous work has been communications focused, so it actually made perfect sense!
AH: How would you explain what you do to someone who isn’t familiar with the practice?
JM: I am a medium, which means I become a “hollow bone” for Spirit to communicate through me. I use my gift to talk with babies pre-conception to find out if there are energetic blocks preventing them from coming into this world.
I talk to babies in utero who need help with the birth process or whose parents want to ask them something, such as input on what their name will be. I also talk to babies who were miscarried, stillborn, or aborted to help tell their story and aid the parents in the grieving process so that they can try again for their rainbow baby.
AH: What has been your biggest motivation as you’ve been growing your business?
When I take care of myself and environment really well and my cup is running over, then I can truly help others heal, too.Jessica McKeown
JM: The babies! I am so honored to help the babies communicate to their parents that there’s actually a spiritual contract between all of them and everyone needs to be in alignment before they can be born.
This realization often alleviates the guilt, shame, grief, and anxiety that parents feel, and also invites in immense joy and gratitude when they get to connect to their little ones and receive the answers they need to bring them into the world.
AH What has been one of your biggest struggles so far?
JM: Time management! Believe it or not, when Spirit gets going, it’s hard for them to stop! They have a completely different sense of time up there, so I’ve set up boundaries to respect my client’s time and mine as well.
I now set my meditation timer (i-Qi clock) for 15 minutes before the end of the appointment time as my cue to start wrapping up the conversation. So far, so good!
AH: Have you always seen yourself as a Spirit Baby Medium? If you were to go back 10 years from now, what would “past you” think of “future you”?
JM: No way! I was on a career track to become a Chief Communications Officer, and once I realized that wasn’t my pathway, I spent the better part of four years figuring out what was.
Once I discovered my gifts and calling, there was no turning back–and technically I am still working in the communications field, just with a slightly different audience.
I think my former self would be giving me hugs and high fives for leaving something secure and stable to go follow my heart and live the life I meant to!
AH: What’s your favorite part about what you do?
JM: Talking to the babies! They are so funny, unique, charismatic, and have such inspiring messages to share, many of which we could all benefit from hearing. When I am channeling their energy, I feel sparkly and full of Divine light, and it actually invigorates me, too.
AH: What is your biggest learning point so far?
JM: SELF CARE. SELF CARE. SELF CARE. In order to do my best work, I need to keep my vibration high. That means daily self care: walks outside in nature, restorative yoga, Epson salt baths, consuming high-energy foods and water, saying no, meditation, and more.
When I take care of myself and environment really well and my cup is running over, then I can truly help others heal, too.
