Rebecca has loved attending women, babies and families at home and in the water for over 30 years. She is still awed by the beauty of birth and the inherent power in women. She started as an RN working independently and with doctors in Indiana, Illinois, and Calif.
While in Calif. she was a co owner and a practitioner with a group of 200 who operated a 50-acre health spa. Training with herbs, mud & mineral baths, yoga, polarity therapy, cranial sacral work , extensive intuitive skills training, nutrition and the raising of 3 darling girls enveloped her time, She returned to school to attend the historic Frontier School of Midwifery’s program in Kentucky to obtain the most holistic training she could find. She received her Master’s degree from Case Western University, and certification through the American College of Nurse Midwives.
This means she is able to function independently, and has prescriptive privileges. Since she loved working with families so much she again returned to school and obtained her Family Nurse Practitioner’s license from the Univ. of Portland. Going further she pursued certified training as a nutritional practitioner. That training optimizes health and balance for the entire family.
Some 600 births down the line, she still loves attending women and families and providing primary care. “I honor the sacredness and intimacy of birth as a life changing event and feel privileged to be a part of an intimate team.. Encouraging and supporting women to do the work of labor- I celebrate with women when they discover how amazingly strong they are”.
Rebecca continues to work with the babies through childhood, sees teenagers through the raging hormone years, moms through menopause, men through life changes, and all adults into the golden years of healthy aging. Her passion for holistic health practices has resulted in a biomedical approach to autistic children and individuals on the ASD spectrum as a DAN! provider- utilizing vitamins, minerals, amino acids and detoxification as part of a treatment plan-, use of bio-identical hormones for women, extensive nutritional and life skills counseling and healthy aging counseling.
She looks forward to working with you! Give her a call at 541-708-0230 or 503-819-3712, or email her @ [email protected]
