September 24, 2012 · Updated 8:46 AM
A new practice has recently opened in Kirkland offering women’s health care and lactation services, called Eastside Women’s Health and Lactation.
Kristina Chamberlain, CNM, ARNP, IBCLC, who runs the clinic, is a nurse-midwife and women’s health nurse practitioner, specializing in gynecology and lactation. She has worked with women in all stages of their life for over 10 years.
She said patients will experience a very personal level of care at the clinic, which is located within the Eastside Natural Medicine clinic at 13128 Totem Lake Blvd. N.E., Suite 104.
“Because I am a solo practitioner, I am able to spend more time getting to know my patients. I schedule longer visits, and return my own phone calls,”
Kristina said. “My relationship with my patients is the most important aspect of my work.”
Kristina sees patients for their annual exams, birth control options (including IUDs), infection checks, breast health, etc. She also works with moms and their babies on breastfeeding issues, such as pain with breastfeeding, low milk supply, and slow weight gain. She no longer provides prenatal care or attends births.
Kristina graduated from the University of Washington with a graduate degree in midwifery and women’s health. She is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant and a member of the adjunct faculty in the midwifery department of Bastyr University.
