Meet Kristina Chamberlain, CNM, ARNP, IBCLC

about

I began my career in women’s health in 1995, without even realizing it. I volunteered at a women’s clinic in Chicago run by a group of diverse, but like- minded women (considered radical by some). We all agreed that everyone deserved to be listened to, to be treated with respect, and to have access to health care. Unfortunately, it seemed like a novel idea to many outside of our walls. But the work done at this particular clinic inspired me to leave my job as a theater producer and go to midwifery school so that I could do my part in changing health care. I have worked with women in hospitals and clinics in Russia and Guatemala, which has only solidified my belief that we all want the same thing: respect, good health, and support. Since then, I have collected many licenses and certifications, but the original passion is still there.

I graduated from the midwifery program at the University of Washington in 2005. I continued to earn a post-masters certification in Women’s Health and was also certified as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. Though I am a midwife and feel honored to have been a part of so many babies coming into the world, I no longer attend births. Instead, I focus my practice on working with women throughout the other stages of their lives, providing well- woman care, including, but not limited to annual exams, birth control, and breast health care. Because I want to stay in the baby world, I also specialize in lactation issues. Before opening Eastside Women’s Health Center, I provided lactation support through home visits, and worked in various women’s health clinics. I recently published my first book: I Can Breastfeed, Visualizing Your Way to Breastfeeding Success.

As EWHC grew, it became clear that it was time to expand. With that expansion came some changes, including adding more providers, and more services, such as pelvic floor therapy and family building via fertility awareness and inseminations.

It humbles me that so many women and their families have trusted me to be a part of their health care.

I am certified by or a member of the following organizations:

In my spare time (ha!), I am running around with my daughters, swimming, having date night with my husband, and experimenting with gluten free recipes.

about

I am excited to make Washington state my new home! I was born and raised in San Francisco, and moved to New York 25 years ago, so moving back to the West coast is like coming home.

I earned my bachelor degrees and master’s in Midwifery from Columbia University in 1998. For over a decade, I had the honor of caring for one of the most culturally diverse and underserved communities of New York where I attended hundreds of births at a free standing birthing center. There, the notion of “family” was defined by the community’s tremendous love and tenacity. The commitment to building generations based on strength and respect laid the foundation for opening an all-inclusive health center.

I later joined an elite team of high risk practitioners, where I spent six years expanding my knowledge and skill set. Although much of my clientele experienced multiple pregnancy losses, infertility challenges, and life threatening medical conditions, there was an inherent space for Midwifery care. Bridging these contrasting experiences as a Midwife has given me the expertise and inspiration to dedicate my life’s work to family building.

Family building means many things.

At Eastside Women’s Health Center, families can meet many of their healthcare needs. I offer annual preventative exams, as well as care for women throughout the life cycle from adolescence to menopause. I offer a wide variety of contraceptive choices, including, but not limited to, natural family planning rhythm method, diaphragm fitting, intrauterine device (IUD) counseling and insertion, and contraceptive pills, patches, and rings. Essentially, finding the right fit

I provide a customized holistic framework in order to maximize the opportunity for conception. For families conceiving through intrauterine insemination (IUI), at-home intracervical insemination (ICI) or intercourse, invitro fertilization (IVF), gestational carrier or surrogacy, I offer holistic modalities coupled with technology to escort families through the process with ease.

It is my mission to support all families, with specific expertise in the LGBTQ community and single parents by choice.

As a proud member of both communities, I strive to create a comfortable, non-judgemental atmosphere, while delivering quality care in order to escort my clients through their journey towards parenthood.

I am excited to create a home here in this beautiful state, and am committed to creating a safe, supportive space where we can grow strong communities by building strong families.

I also perform frenotomies to correct tongue-ties and have developed a comprehensive management protocol for gestational diabetes. Diabetic clients have the option to maintain Midwifery care, and in many cases, are able to maintain their out of hospital delivery choice.

My life work is to offer Family Building services.

about

Welcome! I’m the owner and Licensed Massage Practitioner at Evo Healing Arts. I have found my passion in massage and helping the body to find it’s natural state of health and balance. Whether it’s therapeutic massage, or assisting in relaxation and quieting the body, I love it when my clients leave feeling their best! Massage has many facets and I treat each client on a case by case basis, realizing there are individual needs for everyone that I see. I keep an awareness and presence to adjust the treatment as I need to throughout the session. Touch therapy is a powerful thing, and I have the utmost respect for it. The connection between client and practitioner is a special one, and I honor that position. *I use all organic, scent free, dye free lotions and oils to be cautious of any allergies or sensitivities.

Craniosacral Therapy is a modality of manual therapy my practice has evolved into. I find that more and more people are discovering the benefits of CST, and it’s incorporated into almost all of my massages. It’s a very gentle touch (about 5 grams of pressure, or the weight of a quarter resting on you) and it works through the energetic and electrical exchange of touch. The effectiveness of loosening the fascia (fibrous connective tissue throughout all of the muscles, organs, and other soft structures of the body) has amazing results in the realignment of the entire body. It accesses a deep parasympathetic state (peaceful/relaxation) where great healing can occur. During a CST treatment, the client is an active participant of setting their intention and “going within” their own body to focus on what we’re working on…this is very useful for making real change! *Treatment is done lying on a massage table, fully clothed, with blankets available for warmth or comfort.

I see many newborns, babies, and toddlers for Craniosacral Therapy. Some of the treatments include; torticollis, cranial/facial molding, colic, tongue tie, feeding problems, disruptive sleep patterns and general fussiness. I truly love working with my littlest of clients! CST is very useful for newborns, as their systems are so open and available. I’m grateful for the opportunity to aid in helping these new little people have the best possible start they can, helping them to adjust after the birth process and while they are changing so rapidly. *It’s best to have your child able to be in a thin layer of clothing for treatment. It’s done on a massage table, as well as many different positions being held by both the parents and myself. Treatment while breastfeeding is often a good time to be sure the baby is calm and relaxed.

My education and background include:

I have always been drawn to and enjoyed health care. Our bodies have an amazing ability to heal themselves. I’m here to help facilitate that innate connection to wellness by gently reminding the body of what it already knows. I believe in holistic care and love working as part of a team with your other health care providers to achieve optimal care and results.

about

Acupuncturist, East Asian Medicine Practitioner

Licensed Massage Practitioner

I believe that our health and wellness is our greatest investment. The body is constantly moving towards either sickness or health and our actions will determine which side we end up not simply our genetics. I am a firm believer that we control our health destiny.

I pride myself on the care and interest I take with each patient. I am passionate about helping women and their families reach their optimal health with natural and effective treatments through a combination of Acupuncture, Massage Therapy, Moxibustion and Chinese Medicine.

I earned my Masters Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MAcOM) from Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. I am Washington Board Certified, California State Board Certified and a Nationally Board Certified Acupuncturist. During my Masters Degree and post-graduate training I took a special interest in fertility, pregnancy, women’s health and cosmetic acupuncture.

My first experience with Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine was in 2006 when my father was diagnosed with rapidly progressive, fatal neurological disease Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) that attacks the nerve cells responsible for controlling muscle action such as those in the arms, legs, and face. I believe Acupuncture helped slow down the progression of my fathers disease, he lived a greater quality of life during his last years because of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.

I take most general health insurance. I look forward to meeting you and working with you on living a life without limits.
