Welcome ! The name  Mothering Joy was born as reminder to return home, to our first home, our bodies, our spirit. A forever evolving space to feel, express and receive community resources and support through the healing arts  . 


Mothering Joy, a play on words to Mother Our Joy in our lives. My middle name is Joy. The name Joy is a namesake connected to my maternal line, another reminder I'm breaking generational patterns and traumas by showing up for myself and continuously mothering my womb.


Through the birth of my daughter and essentially through rebirthing myself, ignited a fire within my spirit to dive into birth work. I approach birth in the lens it's a natural physiological sacred process happening in our bodies. A portal and initiation to connect to the depths of you. I support all ways of birthing and birthing places. Understanding the real history in the USA around maternal health, is essential to know how to move forward. I believe it's extremely important to support individuals and grass root organizations fighting to end the crisis on maternal health, in this city and country. Please take a moment to visit the resource page to find more information and ways to support, take action and donate. 

Birth, death and all the moments in between are ceremonies, and my path has led me to hold space for all life's transitions. I believe in inclusivity for all people regardless of your gender, ethnicity, religion or social/economic status. My intention and hope is to help create an "opening" to access all the knowledge, creativity and strengthen that's already deep inside of you!  I currently reside in Bronx, NY with my family. I work as a full spectrum birth worker, reiki practitioner, multi-disciplinary artist, lactation consultant, birth art mentor and kundalini yoga instructor in all surrounding boroughs, parts of NJ and CT.

With Gratitude, 

Katie Joy, Mama Joy, Mother Raine, Dyal Chand
