Here at Deep Roots Birth and Wellness, we view pregnancy and childbirth as physiologically normal and healthy processes.

We are guides along a pregnancy and childbirth path that is well-travelled.

You make decisions along that path, based on true informed-consent care, that are right for your unique body and birthing experience.

We provide care that is well-rounded, family-centered, based on respectful relationship, framed with informed-consent, integrated with health and prenatal education, and continuity of care.

Our goal is to address the whole woman, emphasizing physical health as well as mental, emotional, spiritual, and social well-being.

Consider us your personal health coaches that you hire to prepare you for the biggest physical event of your life. You wouldn’t run a marathon without preparing and training for it. We’re here to partner with you to be as healthy and prepared as possible throughout your pregnancy, through labor and delivery, and in your postpartum time.

The care model we use is unrushed, personalized, and thoughtful. This allows us to know you well and love you through every stage of womanhood.

The Cycle Show

A workshop for girls 9-13 years old

“The Cycle Show is an educational, interactive, multi-media, fertility awareness workshop for young girls. It is a desirable addition to the standard reproductive health education given in schools; its aim is to equip young girls with the knowledge of what is going on inside their bodies in relation to puberty. This knowledge then supports and prepares them in a positive way for the wonderful changes they will experience within their bodies over the coming years.”

“Today it is more important than ever for young girls to have high self-esteem regarding their bodies, not just when they are in the middle of puberty, but before the onset. The beginning of sexual maturation is the ideal time for girls to learn about and appreciate all the amazing changes that are taking place within their bodies. Participation in the Cycle Show gives girls a healthy respect for their bodies and helps to protect them as they move into their teenage years.”
