Meet Naomi Higenbottam, CNP, RN, BScN, MPH
I am a Lactation Consultant, Registered Nurse and Certified Nutritional Practitioner. I completed my Diploma of Holistic Nutrition and Naturally Designed Pregnancy Certification at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition. I received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from York University and a Masters of Public Health degree from The University of Waterloo. I completed my breastfeeding education at the The International Institute of Human Lactation Inc and wrote my board exam in April 2021 to become a International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. I will receive my results this summer! I have completed Herbalism Level 1 through Herbal Academy and have a line of organic herbal body care products.
As a Holistic Nutritionist, I work with clients as unique individuals with a fundamental understanding that one size does not fit all. We work together to determine root causes of health issues and imbalances and helps guide people towards optimum health. As a Holistic Nutritionist I work with you to unify the physical, nutritional, environmental, emotional and spiritual components of your life. I specialize in fertility, pregnancy and postpartum nutrition. I also work with babies and toddler that are starting to eat and specialize in baby led feeding with nutrient dense foods. I have worked for over 10 years with women and have seen the impact optimal nutrition can have on the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual health of a women during her journey to motherhood and beyond.
I'm happiest outside in the forest with my partner and 2 children. We have 2 free range chickens, a rescued dog and a rescued rabbit. In my spare time you'll find me practicing yoga, reading, gardening and drinking chai tea with homemade almond milk :)
