Welcome to Wholehearted Family Health, a community that offers support and reliable, holistic health resources for Western Australian mamas interested in natural health and parenting.
I’m Andrea, creator of Wholehearted Family Health.
You won’t find prescriptive parenting advice that belongs in the dark ages, or overly medicalised health information here.
Nor will you find much of the mainstream advice that you have no doubt seen or heard before – I have provided enough of it in the past 14 years as a midwife and child health nurse!
When I was struggling to conceive, my G.P. could only offer me invasive testing as the first step in assisting me so I approached a naturopath who was recommended by a friend. With no idea what to expect, I couldn’t believe it when after just a couple of months of herbal medicine, dietary modifications and supplements, I was pregnant.
I continued to see her during my pregnancy and gained respect for natural therapies as I learnt so much about the importance of nutrition and lifestyle factors in pregnancy, things that I had never heard about during my midwifery training.
After my daughter was born, I discovered a world of holistic, practical and reliable information, from a range of practitioners, and so came the idea for connecting mamas in WA to these resources.
It is my mission to bridge the gap between mainstream and complementary health philosophy and therapies, to provide local mamas with a holistic approach to health and parenting.
Being a mama is no doubt the hardest job in the world. You love your family with your whole heart and only want the best for them. Wholehearted Family Health is here to help.
