The Eudaimonia Center | Dr. Laurena White The BirthCircle | Birth, Pregnancy, & PostPartum Conversations

    • Medicine

Today we talk to Dr. Laurena White, a medical doctor specializing in both allopathic and traditional medicine, an expert in fertility and pregnancy care, and director of the Eudaimonia Center. She has spent over 15 years using her skill to improve pregnancy care for her patients in a way that promotes genuine healing and avoids invasive medical procedures.

 

We talk about Dr. White's upbringing, her desire to be a doctor, and the cultural womanhood ceremonies that shaped her ambition to become an OBGYN and Doula. We also talk about what pushed her to reach beyond the standard medical system to find the best traditional practices to integrate in treating her patients. We talk about the changes in her life and ethos that led to her establishing the Eudaimonia center.

 

We then talk about the modalities used by the Eudaimonia center in healing patients both medically and holistically and how the current medical system and the birth world at large could benefit from integrating a broader array of treatment modalities. Dr. White walks us through her process of assessing patient needs and tailoring their course of care to best address their individual health.

 

We talk about how normalizing birth and opening education can help to repair some of the misconceptions in the process that lead to over-medicalization. We talk about how to integrate education into your birth plan in order to prevent interventions that you don't want. Finally, we talk about her family culture of vaginal steaming and how having communities of women who talk about their own bodies and health can help girls be more prepared to feel at ease with their natural processes.
