My passion is to help women promote their own wellness and that of their families, drawing on their mental, emotional, physical and spiritual strengths. This mind-body-spirit philosophy includes empowering women to explore and nurture all areas of their lives to allow for the optimal balance of health and well-being. Hence, live joyfully.
January 2020 update: I am not taking home birth clients after May 2020. In keeping with my stated mission (above) I am currently one quarter through Chris Kresser’s ADAPT practitioner program in functional medicine. Functional medicine strives to identify and treat the root of one’s problem rather than simply manage symptoms. I look forward to helping women promote their own health and that of their families in broader and deeper ways as I progress through this program. I am excited that I will have more resources to partner with women to solve health problems and restore their joy in life.
Website changes (and probably a name change) will soon be evident as I shift focus from home birth to functional medicine. Also 13th Moon FB page will begin to have more content r/t overall health promotion, as well as content specific to preconception health, pregnancy/postpartum/breastfeeding health, infant nutrition for first year of life, and women’s health.
Thanks for sharing this journey with me.
