Erykah Badu never ceases to amaze me …

From Artist to Birth Doula, Erykah Badu is now practicing Reiki and therapeutic massages for moms to be. As a mother of three she will be helping other moms deliver their cutie babies naturally. Badu is a spokesperson for the International Center for Natural Childbearing and offers her services free of charge to a small number of clients. …Well, when that time comes she will definitely be getting a call from me!

“When I saw the baby, I cried,” Badu tells People magazine. I knew what I was supposed to do with my life.”

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.”
