Thank you for coming to visit!
My name is Rebecca Duerr (pronounced DO-err). I am the founder of Mindful Family Wellness, a North Carolina Licensed Nutritionist, Certified Nutrition Specialist, Certified Labor Doula, postpartum doula, sibling doula, Certified HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educator, and Certified Placenta Arts Specialist. I live just north of Charlotte, NC, in the Lake Norman area with my husband, 4 daughters, and lots of fur babies.
As a doula and nutritionist whose practice serves the Charlotte and Lake Norman areas of North Carolina, I support mothers and birthing people improve their overall health, birth outcome, and mental wellness through the experiences of pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. I use such tools and services as childbirth education classes, doula support through pregnancy, labor/birth and postpartum, as well as nutritional guidance and education for both mother and baby. Providing these services has been shown to increase positive birth outcomes, reduce cesarean section births, reduce postpartum mental disorders such as postpartum depression/anxiety (PPD/A) and postpartum post-traumatic stress disorder, (PPTSD) increase breast/chest-feeding success and duration, and strengthen the holistic health of both parent and child.
As you can see, I offer a number of different services. As a NC Licensed Nutritionist, I provide integrative and functional nutrition counseling for the entire family. I also provide doula support, including pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and sibling support. I am a Hypnobirthing® childbirth educator and have new classes starting monthly. The beauty of providing these services is that I can help you in one area or in many. I can see you or your family for nutritional guidance. I can see you for pregnancy and birth support, as a doula. Or we can combine these services. The possibilities are endless.
Please take a look around my website and reach out to me with any questions you might have or to set up a session or consultation. I look forward to hearing from you!
