Maternity Occasion wear
JIVA began with a desire: to give all mothers the opportunity to nurse in comfort whilst feeling good about the way they look. We’re not here to debate whether breast is best. However, for those mothers who choose to breastfeed, we want to make it a little bit easier for them. At JIVA we feel you don’t need to compromise style for functionality or practicality. As a brand we aim to support mothers who wish to breastfeed by filling the huge gap in the Indian clothing market for breastfeeding friendly ethnic wear. Having said that, the JIVA community is for all mothers, regardless of how you choose to feed your baby and we use our platform to create a supportive community for all mothers. We’d love your support and would love for you to join us on this journey of creating a supportive community for all mothers.

Spark Up Your Light
Reiki Infused Crystal Candles
My business has grown very organically. It all started when I went back to work in lockdown following my third maternity leave. I was looking for something to give me joy in my life. I created my Instagram page purely for myself, to take a picture each day of something that made me smile. Not just mum or wife smiles but smiles just for me! Gradually, it grew into a small business (still working part-time) after qualifying as a Reiki Healing Master and Crystal Energy Guide. I now have a beautiful Etsy shop selling Crystal Candles that I create with my mum and crystals and crystal bundles I put together based on my own needs and experiences. Channelling Distance Reiki is my ultimate passion and I love all the intuitive messages I get, just knowing how much someones energy levels are raised following a session gives me great soul satisfaction. My aim is to be that beacon of light we all need at some point in our lives, especially for women with young children. I hope to leave people empowered to continue their own healing journey and life filled with love & joy!
