Bringing ease and confidence to your child's vaccinations.
From birth to kindergarten.
Are you anxious about vaccinating your baby or child?
You want the best for them and wonder:
Is giving multiple vaccines all at the same appointment good for them?
Isn't there a gentler way to do this, that still protects my kid from life-threatening illnesses?
You've decided to vaccinate, but don't know where to turn for evidence-based information.
How do I space out vaccines?
What can I do to prevent serious side effects?
What's a normal reaction and when should I call my pediatrician?
If that's you, you're not alone.
As a parent and a pediatric East Asian Medicine practitioner, I get it.
I am a licensed pediatric acupuncturist in NY, PA, and VT and a Chinese Herbalist. I bring East Asian Medicine and evidence-based practices together to help you think through your options, formulate a plan, and feel ease and confidence throughout the 6+ year journey of decision-making that comes along with immunizing your little one.
THERE ARE SO MANY BARRIERS TO MAKING AN INFORMED CHOICE. FROM MISINFORMATION TO FEAR
TO SIMPLY FINDING TIME.
On top of all that, you may just not be sure that there is anything can CAN do except bodyfeeding or "lollipop"-ing your way through the immunization appointment.
But hoping for the best doesn't always work out.
From the panicky feelings that come with not knowing what to do when your kid reacts to a vaccine to facing more serious side effects, being without a plan or resources can be unsafe and can have lifelong implications.

All parents and parents-to-be. All genders welcome. It’s for people who care about informed consent but need more information and support around their child's vaccines to do so.

"Rebecca deeply transformed my first prenatal, birth and postpartum experience through her expansive understanding and application of chinese medicine and intuitive sense of emotional care. I was two months pregnant when covid hit and frantically sought out virtual health support...she has been a beacon of support and nourishment throughout my postpartum time and I feel amazing in my body and relationships with my new baby and family. As a bonus, my severe chronic back pain disappeared after our first four sessions together, which is a miracle since I had spent 15 years and thousands of dollars to relieve this pain. I would recommend Rebecca to literally everyone."
