Meet Dr. Rebecca Cohen
I am an obstetrician, wise woman and mother with almost 30 years experience in women's healthcare. I combine knowledge gained from allopathic medical training with wisdom from years of study of herbal medicine, traditional healing practices and physical and energetic modalities.
My mission is to orient women to their inner knowing as they thrive in their power and remember that they are not broken.
My greatest strength and vision has come from the lessons I have learned from mothering my nine children. My varied birth experiences have gifted me first hand knowledge of what it feels like to be bound by the constraints of the medical industrialized birth model as well how it feels to birth sovereignly in your power. My postpartum experiences opened my eyes to the lack of systemic care that leaves mothers and babies isolated without support. Witnessing my six daughter's journeys into womanhood, I have learned to teach young women not only about their anatomy and physiology, but also the sacredness of their bodies, the transformative power of our cycles and the significance of sisterhood.
I have been genuinely blessed by the lineage of wise women that have come before me and helped shape my approach to holistic healing and authentic wise-woman care: Rosita Arvigo, Rachelle Garcia Seliga, Rosemary Gladstar, Tami Kent, Jeannine Parvati, Aviva Romm, Sister Morningstar and many others.
I am thankful for the opportunity to serve the women in my community on their journey to wellness. My path has now come Full Circle.
