I am a french acupuncturist and midwife, passionate about the birthing process and families. I am also a childbirth educator, birth and postpartum doula, and lactation coach. I’m fluent in english and french.
Having experienced the benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) myself during my pregnancy, I am a mom of a beautiful 7 months old baby and I can tell how much TCM helped me through this journey!
In return, I will be happy to help you with acupuncture, herbal medicine and other modalities of Chinese Medicine. I will be honored to be part of your woman’s journey.
