Welcome to Balanced Beginnings!
Erin Geyer-Gilman, M.A., LMT
I am dedicated to bringing happiness and health to women, mothers and babies.
I firmly believe that the best beginning for our children of the future starts with nurturing that child's mother (and father too). In this way they can focus on nurturing themselves and their child for the ultimate, Balanced Beginning.
I am mother to Liam (4) and Noel (10 months). Liam's beginning was a homebirth turned unnecessary C Section, he was 8.9 at birth. Noel's birth was a unassisted home birth after c section HVBAC with the emotional support of a midwife friend. Noel was 10 pounds at birth.
