Sharing Nature's Wisdom
Christine Cassella, M.S. is owner of Resilient Birth & Botanicals, a mother, community herbalist, and holistic birth keeper. She is most passionate about helping people reclaim their inherent connection with the cycles of nature, especially in the childbearing years. She received her certificate in herbalism with Rosemary Gladstar and is currently pursuing additional studies with Dr. Aviva Romm. Christine has been practicing the arts of herbalism for over a decade, and has been passionate about natural health throughout her life. Christine is a Birth Arts International certified birth doula, a midwife assistant, and student Certified Professional Midwife.
It is her belief that birth is a pivotal time during a childbearing person’s life to claim their power, find their truth, and emerge as a new parent prepared to face all the challenges and joys that arise. Christine’s diverse skill set allows her to provide client care that is both evidence-based, intuitive, and parent-centered. Christine has special interests in teaching birthing people and their families how they can thrive using herbal remedies, and she is particularly interested in supporting parents desiring natural birth at home or hospital. She is a safe and inclusive doula for parents of all backgrounds and orientations.
