Riverside Healing Center offers a unique approach to midwifery in Maine. It provides integrative care by artfully blending traditional midwifery practices and Naturopathic medicine. Additionally, Riverside Healing Center extends a holistic scope of practice beyond midwifery by offering continuity of care from pre-conception, through the childbearing years, as well as pediatric and general family health.
As a naturopathic physician and midwife, Dr. Werner is uniquely qualified to treat common conditions that arise in pregnancy, birth, and the post-partum period by employing natural remedies for support. Through her specialty in pediatrics she provides healthy foundations for childhood development by counseling in nutrition, vaccinations, restorative sleep patterns, and the introduction of solid foods.
The practice is founded on the belief that birth is a natural physiological process and that home birth is a safe option for healthy women. A midwife-client partnership is based on trust, education and informed choice. We strive to support families while they recognize their individual abilities to cope successfully with the challenge of labor, birth and parenting and encourage them to be active participants in their experience.
It is our mission to provide you and your baby with the optimal holistic midwifery care possible. Call to schedule your free consultation with Dr. Werner today.
