I'm Tristin, and I love helping women optimize their prenatal health and have a fulfilling birth.
My focus is helping women reduce the risk of pregnancy and birth complications with holistic approaches so they can have the birth they want and avoid interventions they don't need.
After earning my Master's degree in Chinese medicine from Bastyr University in Seattle in 2006, I opened a private practice specialized in fertility and prenatal care.
Though my education was of the highest standards for Chinese medicine, and it prepared me technically for practice, I felt that something was missing from my knowledge base.
After studying with several amazing teachers who provided more technical knowledge, in 2011 I finally found the mentor who would provide me the insights into Chinese medicine I was looking for that helped me become a more holistic practitioner.
In the coming years, my mentor, Dr Yaron Seidman, and I would publish a book, Hunyuan Fertility: Conception, Babies & Miracles.
Along the way, I have also earned certificates in childbirth education, clinical whole foods nutrition, breathwork facilitation, the Body Ready Method© for pregnancy and birth, as well as the Holistic Doula training and a 10-month immersion in Quantum Midwifery practices from the Matrona with the wise one Whapio.
With the knowledge shared with me by my wise mentors, I have developed unique courses for natural pregnancy and birth to help women be able to say "I loved being pregnant and giving birth!".
Please reach out if you would like to learn more about the approach I have used to help hundreds of natural birthing families prepare for their births - it would be an honor to share any part of your pregnancy journey with you 💜.
