Hygeia Mama is the maternal/infant division of Hygeia Public Health, owned by Dr. Jill Chasse, a Clinical Health Educator and Certified Functional Medicine & Trauma Specialist.
Public Health and Hygiene
Hygeia is associated with the prevention of sickness
(preventive medicine) and the continuation of good health.
Hygeia's antagonists were the Nosoi (Spirits of Disease).
Although she is originally the goddess of physical health, she is
sometimes conceived as the giver or protectress of mental health
Dr. Jill Diana Chasse started her career in maternal health in the early 90’s while volunteering in labor and delivery at Mountainside Hospital and working with mothers at local La Leche League meetings.
In 1996, Jill became a Certified Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist by the International Association for Counselors and Therapists (IACT) for birth counseling and hypnosis for childbirth. She began working with mothers and started her practice "Magic of Motherhood" addressing the magic of love, connection, and early attachment shared between a mother and the baby in her womb. She utilized relaxations and visualizations to help both the mother and the prenate prepare for birth.
With Magic of Motherhood, she went on to receive certification as a Birth Assistant, trained as a birth doula with CAPPA, and studied midwifery at both Ancient Arts Midwifery Institute and Institute of Holistic Midwifery.
After earning post doctoral education and working for over a decade in maternal health, Dr. Chasse branched into public health, global health and humanitarian medicine. With her expanded focus on public health education and outreach, she transformed Magic of Motherhood into Hygeia Public Health and eventually was able to branch off Hygeia Mama for a specific focus on the perinatal period.
Dr. Jill's experience and education in science, medicine and psychology, including midwifery, grief/loss, trauma, epidemiology, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, child development and developmental psychoneurobiology helps her to intertwine the physiological and psychological aspects of the mother-baby dyad to offer calm and effective healing.
