Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. ~World Health Organization, 1948
From your first period to your last.
Since 2005, Dr. Emilie has helped establish healthy menstruations, as well as supported hundreds of patients struggling to conceive either naturally or with IUI/IVF.
As a doula and Dr. TCM, Emilie understands that the foundation of an optimal pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum, is physical, mental and emotional care. Acupuncture is a safe way to support every stage of pregnancy and beyond.
Acupuncture is an effective way to address and manage stress, anxiety, PTSD and depression. It is a ‘talk optional’ treatment that can be used with or without traditional counselling, medications and therapies.
“Last week I heard the heartbeat again at 14 weeks and started to cry. I just want to sincerely thank Dr. Emilie for being so understanding and kind, for her reassurance, for her explanations of medical jargon and most of all for letting me just cry. In addition to the acupuncture, which I am positive gave me a precious healthy egg, she was such a positive light every week.”Caitlin
ABOUT DR. EMILIE (she/her/hers)
I have had the pleasure of serving the lower mainland as a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, an acupuncturist and a doula, since 2005.
I am dedicated to helping create the building blocks for a healthy pregnancy, birth, family and community. Along with my clinical work, I am committed to providing education, advocacy and care for marginalized communities both in the lower mainland and abroad. My goals include improving emotional and physical outcomes in the lead up to conception, during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. I also seek to increase the visibility and accessibility of perinatal acupuncture and Chinese Medicine through educating and training maternal healthcare professionals in perinatal supportive care. My success is not only measured by patients achieving their optimal health and wellness, but also by ensuring that every person I work with feels seen, heard and deeply care about.
