Providers

Michelle Stephens

PhD, CPNC, RN

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

I use my experiences as a scientist, clinician, and mommy to co-create better health outcomes for the next generation of kids.

Things I love to treat: Misdiagnosed, under-addressed, or recurring issues.

Judy Kivowitz

RN

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

My patients call me Nurse Judy. Over the past 30 years, I have been helping parents stay calm and problem solve a wide variety of issues! I spend a lot of time talking to new parents about sleep and solid foods, but I would have to say that the big winner for the most common topic is probably poop.

Things I love to treat: Worried parents who are doing their best to navigate the barrage of information and opinions that are out there.

Ask me about: There is no such thing as a silly question. I don’t always have all the answers, but I am happy to put on my thinking cap and try to figure things out with you.

Ted Handler

MD, MPH, MBA

Pronouns: He/Him/His

As a Pediatrician, I approach my patients and their parents with deep empathy. I joined to help build Oath because I am frustrated with how traditional practice limits my ability to listen to and meet the needs of parents.

Things I love to treat: I love talking to patients about nutrition and the microbiome. My goal is to help parents make healthy choices based on the latest studies. In the doctor’s office, I honestly enjoy doing procedures such as laceration repair.

Ask me about: Navigating the medical system, working with doctors and specialists, “do I need to see the doctor for...” questions. 

Den Bremond

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

I have a passion for helping kids and adults find their own paths toward greater health and well-being.

Janae Jones

Birth & Postpartum Doula

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

After working in special education for nearly fifteen years, I decided to train to become a doula. Three years later, I started my own business and became a doula full time. I have three kids of my own and love supporting and educating birthing families, as well as helping new parents plan for their postpartum period.

Things I love to treat: I love working with first-time parents, however I also work with a lot of clients who were not satisfied with their first birth experience and they want to try something different for the next one.

Ask me about: Pain management during labor and how to care for yourself after having a baby.

Brittany Williams

MAMFT, PLMFT, RYT-200

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

I leverage my calling to hold space for both the profound and the practical aspects of the human experience to help individuals, couples and families thrive!

Things I love to treat: Systems - individual, couple and familial. I often treat anxiety and insecure cognitions.

Ask me about: Mental well-being, relationships (self & others) parenting support and positive psychology.

Rachel Gelman

PT, DPT

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

I'm a Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist with a passion for educating people about their bodies and promoting wellness for anyone with a pelvis.

Things I love to treat: Complex pelvic pain conditions and anything related to sexual health/sexual dysfunction.

Ask me about: Anything related to the pelvic floor and your vaginal/vulvar health! Having pain with sex? Pee or poop problems after baby? Ask away! There is no such thing as TMI with me.

Jody Vaynshtok

MS, CCC-SLP

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

As a Speech Language Pathologist (SLP), I care about the entire “village” of my patients, which includes communicating, teaching and learning from each patient's family, teachers, PCP, and/or pediatrician.

Things I love to treat: Anything that increases communication! I often treat expressive language delay and articulation delay.

Ask me about: Your little ones and their speech, language, auditory processing, and voice.

Jennifer Darwin

Birth & Postpartum Doula

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

I found my calling as a doula after working as a nurse in Pediatrics and the Labor and Delivery field. My passion is to educate and guide people through the unpredictable time of pregnancy and newborn parenting.

Things I love to treat: I love helping expecting families develop a practical evidence-based birth plan, find different coping techniques for pain during labor, and create a plan for after the baby arrives!

Ask me about: Ways to find the best provider for my ideal birth, which birth location is the best for me, medications used during labor, and what to do after we bring our tiny little human home with us.

Pam Jones

Sleep Specialist

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

Helping exhausted families get the sleep they need to enjoy their babies and their lives is my passion. I've been traveling around the US to rescue sleep deprived families since 2009, which is how I got the nickname "The Baby Whisperer."

Things I love to treat: Most parents just need their confidence built up while teaching the baby or toddler healthy sleep practices.

Ask me about: Your fear of being judged or shamed that you would like to sleep in your own bed with your partner alone. And also maybe watch a movie together, instead of battling a two-hour bedtime routine, that everyone dreads. It can all be done, I promise!

Elisabeth Weiss Roberts

RN, IBCLC

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

I started my career as a labor and delivery nurse and moved into specializing in lactation, where I found my great passion for maternal child health. I enjoy helping new moms find a plan that works for both mom and baby.

Things I love to treat: My first question when working with my clients is "what do YOU need?'. The road for new moms is bumpy and ensuring that they have their emotional and physical needs tended to should never be overlooked. I'm a firm believer that if you take care of mom, you get better outcomes all around, and nowhere is that truer than in the realm of breastfeeding.

Ask me about: Anything about breastfeeding that you find challenging! Oftentimes what seems so frustrating can be fixed with a different perspective and a little working knowledge. I love debunking the myth that just because something is natural, then it must be easy.
