Hi there! I’m Christine, the founder of Wild Womb Mama. I serve growing families as a herbalist and holistic postpartum doula.
My earliest memories are of picking herbs and berries on the sunny hillsides of my family’s ranch in Southern Alberta. This set the foundation for a lifelong love for the plants and wild ecosystems! Seeking out the temperate rainforest and a longer gardening season, I left Alberta to put down roots in coastal British Columbia. I currently reside on the Sunshine Coast with my partner, son and two cats.
I spent the “fourth trimester” with my son finishing up school studying Western Herbal Medicine. Herbalism and the postpartum experience became so entangled that creating a practice around postpartum care was inevitable! Being able to support growing families is the greatest privilege I could ask for. I see tending to maternal health as a gateway for improving the health of humanity as a whole.
You’ll probably find me in the kitchen cooking up wild foods, tossing stones into the ocean with my son, or foraging for edibles and medicinals in the mountains. Days spent in the wilderness have taught me more than any book or course! I believe that preserving the wild is the greatest fight of our times, with human health being the microcosm of the state of the lands and waters. I try to weave everything in my life back to this guiding philosophy.
