Jananya means earth. Jananya is also synonymous to birth. All life forms start with earth. Women today are losing the connection with nature by trusting artificial means of birth rather than trusting their own bodies and their natural instincts. All animals give birth naturally in a natural setting. Why should it be different for humans? Our bodies are meant to give birth without any interventions and breastfeed immediately on birth.
Birthing is not just about making babies. It is about the birth of mothers and fathers; it is about the creation of a family and fulfillment of life. Pregnancy and birth are the most natural occurrences and they do not have to be complicated. Every parent should and will enjoy the simple complexity of pregnancy, birth and postpartum when they connect themselves deeply with the natural order of life. And that’s where Jananya comes in. Jananya’s mission is to help women and their families reconnect with the natural process of birth and parenthood.
What Jananya gives you
Jananya’s core strength lies in it’s ability to be a facilitator, rather than a teacher in helping parents make informed choices about pregnancy, birth, postpartum and parenthood.

Every woman is unique. Every child is unique. Every pregnancy is unique. Jananya acknowledges this uniqueness and offers tailored sessions in pregnancy, breastfeeding, postpartum and parenting.
Jananya’s mission is in helping you create your own beautiful and unique story on how you give birth, how you raise your bundle of joy and how you journey into parenthood.

About the founder
Hello! I'm Nithya Rajanarayanan
I am a professionally Certified Childbirth Educator and Lactation Counselor from CAPPA, USA. I also hold an MBA from California State University, USA. For close to 13 years, I have worked in the IT industry in various managerial positions. I have been passionate about a few things for a really long time. One, teaching and empowering others; Two, enabling women-to-women support; Three, the healthcare domain.
What drove my passions stronger was my tryst with the healthcare domain while I worked in the IT industry, my desire to get women to take care of themselves and support other women do the same. So, after years of deliberating, I decided to quit my job and started focusing on my inner self and realized where women needed most support. My recollection of my own labour and birth and looking around in today’s world made me realize the need for creating Jananya. And that’s how my journey and Jananya’s journey began..
