As practitioners, we must initiate the change we need to see in the way we approach maternal and prenatal care.
As women, we need to educate and advocate for ourselves.
In Functional Maternity, I am giving you the tools to begin making changes in the lives of your patients, yourself, and generations to come.
Nutrition is the most under-addressed and underutilized tool in the prevention and treatment of all diseases, but none more than the care of maternity.
Could the key to lowering our ever-growing negative maternity statistics be found in understanding the beautiful, functional workings of the female body and how nutrition affects the outcomes of these functions?

A Society Of Lost Women
Maternity healthcare in America has become heavily medicalized over the last few centuries as I’m sure you’ve seen through your own experiences in the birthing world. I am not saying that conventional medicine isn’t amazing. Without the vast discoveries and medical advances,
we as humans would not have the life expectancies that we enjoy in modern times. There are many birthing women who do, in fact, need these interventions.
As we have advanced, our medical sciences with new techniques and procedures, we have lost our connection to the natural biology and preventative nutrition that cultures before us knew. An overuse of these lifesaving techniques also comes with risks and possible complications and should be reserved for only true emergency scenarios.
For the last several decades medical researchers, professors, physicians, midwives, doulas, mothers, and women like you have begun to sound the alarm and raise questions as to whether our medicalized approach to pregnancy and childbirth is to the benefit of women. They are beginning to question why we are seeming to need more intervention in birth. The changing environment of natural medicine and the increasing interest in alternatives to the conventional model of care abounds in all aspects of health—none more than in maternity support and care. Women are beginning to question the care they are receiving through these standard practices and are seeking more natural ways to experience birth.
