“What’s That Rash?” Clearing Up Common Skin Questions in Kids

Baby Skin Rash Yeast Candida Red

As naturopathic doctors working with kids, we get a lot of questions from parents about a new or ongoing rash they’ve seen cropping up on their baby or child’s skin. Rashes or other skin issue are a good reason to check in: the skin is the largest organ of the body, tends to be extra sensitive in little ones, and conveys a lot of information about his or her overall health status. Below The Surface You might be surprised to learn that most skin conditions aren’t “just” skin conditions. The skin happens to be one way that symptoms express themselves that we can easily see and observe. It’s also why we include a skin health exam with your baby or … Read More

“The Magic of Birth” – Guelph Doula Christa Vandervelde Joins Our Team

Guelph Doula

Growing up as the eldest of seven children, I knew a thing or two about birth. When I was just 13 years old, I discovered the idea of doula work as a profession when I began babysitting for a doula who lived down my street. During my frequent visits, I pulled books from her shelf and was introduced to a world of new ideas and inspiration.

If We Haven’t Met Yet… My name is Christa VanderVelde. I’m a Doula in Guelph, Ontario. I’m passionate … Read More
