About the provider

Teri-Ann Coombes

Hi, I'm Teri-Ann and I am a certified childbirth educator and doula through Birthing From Within™ as well as a Certified Holistic Nutritionist™. I am passionate about helping parents prepare for birth but also to thrive rather than survive the 4th-trimester (what comes after birth). I Want You To Know... * Birth is just the beginning of your parental activation journey, it's the top of the mountain, your return is as important to prepare for as the birth is. * Knowledge is power and the better you understand what is coming your way, the better you’ll feel going through it. * This transformation will be hard. * Your relationship and how you see your partner will change. * You will never understand what sleep deprivation feels like until you look after a newborn baby. * Pregnancy changes your DNA, it changes your hormones, it changes how well your organs function too. So why doesn't our current prenatal care educate women on how to keep their body functioning optimally so the whole family benefits from having more energy, better health, and improved milk quality for your baby to enjoy. * Lactation depletes the already depleted body and birth recovery looks different for every birth outcome. * Your inner experience will affect how your body goes through this amazing transformation. * You need a plan to help you achieve your ultimate launch into parenthood I chose this career choice because I was so shocked by my first postpartum experience. I knew that this stage in life is so undervalued, underfunded, and under-supported by our current prenatal care system. To be a happy and healthy parent you need to plan for a holistic recovery. I’m here to help you achieve that, you will PLAN and THRIVE in your new role as parents or parents again. If you’re looking for a transformative, supported, and holistic recovery from pregnancy and birth you’ve found the right childbirth educator & 4th-trimester Doula. I look forward to meeting you, My website has all of my services and even downloadable meal guides so you can start feeding your baby with Evidence-Based meals that support optimal brain development TODAY.
