Natural Birth Friendly OB, Midwife, & Natural Healing Practices:
Bergen Family Wellness
At Bergen Family Wellness, we believe that everyone needs a little something different and that health is defined differently based upon each individual. How many times have you heard that the issue you are experiencing is due to stress? This is true but lets elaborate on that. There are three main types of stresses; physical, chemical and emotional. With most musculoskeletal issues, it is usually due to physical stress, either being minor traumas over time or a major trauma. For example, a minor stress can be sitting with improper posture and biomechanics for 8 hours per day at your desk. A major physical stress could be a motor vehicle accident or a fall down the stairs. Often times there can be some chemical stresses like inflammation or emotional stress that keeps you from fully healing. These stresses lead to something called a subluxation. This is what chiropractic physicians detect and correct. This belief is what leads Dr. Briana to design a specific care plan for each patient. She not only takes your musculoskeletal aliments into account but also how your lifestyle is affecting your health. She figures out what changes need to occur to achieve an optimal state of health and well being.

Earth Theories: Mehnaz Pirzada Homeopathy Practitioner
I have sprouted from my own passion on nurturing my family for the last 19 years in a wholesome upbringing and want to impart this awareness of keeping ourselves balanced and in harmony through nutrition, spirituality and classical homeopathy. I have also graduated from Academy of Homeopathy NYC/WORLD with clinical training in homeopathy and had the honor of studying under renowned homeopaths and learn from their vast experience. I truly believe that time has come where the paradigm of conventional medicine is slowly being replaced by a blending of complementary and alternative medicine. It is through the integration of these healing modalities that we will better serve our communities in their journey of health and healing.

Donna Tabbas (CNM)
A solo dedicated CNM with a very unique 5 point model of care that enables me to help moms have the best chances of birthing normally ( 5% c/s rate), transforms expectations of birth from fear/tension/pain to that of confidence, comfort, strength and joy: I am guided by the physiological model of birthing, and with my extended time home prenatal visits, I am able to give the highest level of personalized and holistic care. I am specially trained to diagnose and correct malpositioned heads that are the cause of so many of our "necessary Unnecessary c/s rate (ridiculously high at 40-50% in NJ).
