Christiane Northrup, M.D., visionary pioneer in women’s health, is a board-certified OB/GYN, former assistant clinical professor of OB/GYN at the University of Vermont College of Medicine and three-time New York Times best-selling author of the books, Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom, The Wisdom of Menopause and Goddesses Never Age: The Secret Prescription for Radiance, Vitality, and Well-Being.

“The first time I witnessed a birth as a med student, I wept and nearly fell to my knees in awe,” Dr. Northrup says. “Nothing had ever moved me this much. I knew that this was my calling: to stand by while women gave birth. Over time, I realized that whether or not we ever have physical children, the feminine within us is always and forever giving birth. Because the essence of God is birthing spirit into matter, inspiration into form.”
Dr. Northrup embraces medicine that acknowledges the unity of mind, body, emotions and spirit, and teaches women to create health by tuning into their inner wisdom. After decades spent transforming women’s understanding of their sacred bodies and processes, Dr. Northrup now teaches women to thrive at every stage of life.
