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 Total Health, 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 ETHL 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:

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 Total Health, 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, 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.

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

I’m a Functional Nutritionist and founder of NourishThrive. My passion is to help people achieve optimal wellness and to feel their absolute best! I use an evidence-based functional medicine approach, which looks at the body as a system and focuses on the underlying root cause of imbalances in the body that can have a systemic impact rather than simply addressing individual symptoms or health concerns. I understand and respect each person’s individuality based on his or her unique biological and physiological makeup including how our genes interact with lifestyle and environmental factors.

I am especially passionate about helping families with preconception, fertility, pregnancy, and postpartum. There are many natural ways to boost fertility by using food as medicine, removing environmental toxins, reducing stress, as well as addressing other health issues that could be impacting conception. I also have experience working with women who have the MTHFR genetic mutation. In addition, I can help resolve digestive issues, food allergies/sensitivities, adrenal and thyroid dysfunction, skin disorders, fatigue, and help with weight loss.

I earned my bachelor’s degree in nutrition at Bastyr University and my master's degree in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine from University of Western States. I am licensed by the State of Washington as a Certified Nutritionist and currently accept some insurance plans.

about

A Northwest native, I began my pursuit of higher education at Seattle University, earning a degree in international studies. It was not until working in education and a year travelling abroad in Latin America that I discovered my true passion in healthcare. I completed my master of science in nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner from Pacific Lutheran University. Primary care nursing is the perfect union of my interests: people, science and holistic medicine.

During my clinical experience, I fell in love with working with women and infants and sought out further specialized training in lactation and breastfeeding support. I believe that breastfeeding is the first preventive health measure a family can take in the care of their newborn and in the promotion of healthy postpartum recovery. After specialized training and dedicated hours serving as a lactation consultant at a local inpatient and outpatient setting, I became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and now dedicate much of my practice to science-based, gentle and sincere breastfeeding and postpartum support. In addition to this specialty training, I have experience in primary care and pediatrics which aids my care for the family as a whole. In my free time, I am absolutely immersed in the transition of motherhood as I care for my 3 month old baby boy with my husband of 8 years. The experience of childbirth, breastfeeding and ongoing postpartum recovery have only grown my passion for working with women and infants during this complex and vulnerable time. My other loves include enjoying the outdoors, hiking, paddleboarding, and spending time with my many local family members.
