Stephanie Heintzeler – Doula

Stephanie Heintzeler ist 2003 mit zwei Koffern nach New York gezogen. In Deutschland hatte sie zuvor als Hebamme gearbeitet, ein Beruf, der in Amerika ein vollkommen anderes Profil hat als in Deutschland und den Stephanie so nicht in den USA ausüben wollte. Deshalb hat sie eine Ausbildung zur Doula gemacht, einer Schwangerschafts-, Geburts- und Wochenbettbegleiterin, die vor allem in den USA gerne als zusätzliche Ansprechperson neben Arzt oder Hebamme hinzugezogen wird.

Verena Schiml – Gründerin von „Mom in Balance“ New York

Verena Schiml ist eine echte Powerfrau: Bis zu ihrem 22. Lebensjahr war sie Leistungsschwimmerin, sogar bis zu den Deutschen Meisterschaften hat sie es geschafft. Kein Wunder, dass Sport und körperliche Fitness ihr auch heute noch extrem wichtig sind: Nachdem sie über zehn Jahre im Marketing gearbeitet hat, hat sie an der Sporthochschule Köln ein Studium zur Fitness-Trainerin absolviert und sich als Personal-Trainerin in Amsterdam selbstständig gemacht. Parallel hat sie bei Mom in Balance als Trainerin gearbeitet und dort werdenden Müttern gezeigt, wie sie sich während der Schwangerschaft fit halten und sich auf die Geburt vorbereiten können. Nach sechs Jahren in den Niederlanden hat Verena im Sommer 2016 die Koffer gepackt und ist mit ihrem Mann und ihren zwei Kindern nach New York gezogen. Hier hat sie einen neuen Ableger von Mom in Balance gegründet – den ersten in ganz Amerika.

Keep your Kids healthy – naturally (Part II)

From birth to adolescence, our children go through many complex stages in their physical and psycho-emotional development. They respond to their immediate environment and the larger world according to their genetic endowment and the support they receive from their caregivers.

In this and a previous article she offers some guiding principles for parents considering naturopathic approaches to minor illnesses of their children.

Keep your Kids healthy – naturally (Part I)

Every child will soon or later have a cold or tummy ache. Most of these episodes are not all that serious but they can make you and your child feel miserable enough to look for help. In Germany many pediatricians are interested in avoiding pharmaceutical drugs, such as antibiotics, when a young patient visits. In the US it is more difficult to find doctors who are knowledgeable about naturopathic treatments.

The most common health concerns in young children are usually respiratory infections and digestive troubles. Children’s immune systems are being formed in the first months of life, and so kids are more susceptible to infections. Also, their little bodies are learning to assimilate foods that are new to them. That’s not always easy and often leads to tummy aches or digestive troubles.
