I have been working in the field of traditional midwifery care for the past 15 years. My work as a ‘midwife’ embraces the original meaning of this word, which is caretaker of women’s health from ‘womb to tomb.’
‘Innate’ is that which is natural and inherent. ‘Traditions’ are those teachings that are passed down from one generation to the next. Our innate physiological design offers us a map to health and wellness. We THRIVE when we follow that which has been laid out for us. Traditional medicinal knowledge is stored within our blood memory, within the Earth, Air, Water and Fire. The more we heal ourselves from the destructive programming we have received, the more -access- we have to this knowledge. It is from these understandings that ‘Innate Traditions’ was born. All of my work is dedicated to this Remembrance.
I run a Holistic Well-Woman Care practice, which tends to the health of our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. Current ‘well-woman’ care is based upon diagnostic testing, and diagnostic testing alone, is not health care. Health care is first and foremost preventative in nature—and diagnostic and curative when need be.
