The Family Wellness Centre is a small practice located in Windsor, Ontario. The FWC is dedicated to promoting health and wellness during the childbearing years. As modern day medicine has become less healing in nature, one objective is to help families get back to the basics of wellness through a natural/holistic and informed choice approach.
As prenatal educators we share information regarding all types of births. No matter what you plan, mother nature always has ideas of her own. We intend to dispel many of the common fears surrounding birth through informed choice and education. Understanding what common options are available, and the current evidence based medical interventions - discussing the benefits, risks and alternatives, is a huge advantage to everyone's health and well being.
Part of the practice is referring families to local doulas. A doula can provide your family with informational, emotional and physical support you may need prior to birth, during the birthing process. and the postpartum period as you transition into parenthood.
Rhea, the owner of the FWC is a retired Registered Massage Therapist, she is happy to share tips and ideas on how to physically maintain optimal health. She is currently a social work student at the University of Windsor, and she also is able to help you and your family reach your optimal emotional health through general dialog during our prenatal, childbirth and parenting workshops.
