About Motherhood Medicine
"Motherhood Medicine exists for all women: the mothers of the universe, the daughters of the earth, and the wise sisters amongst us.
Here women are invited to conceive, grow, birth, and nurture their truest and most authentic healing journey."
My name is Dr. Marlene Ehrler, ND and I am a Naturopathic Doctor, speaker, medicine maker, and the founder of Motherhood Medicine.
My work is rooted in connection, creativity, and service. I encourage intuition and focused attention as ways for my clients to connect with their health, their body, and emotional landscape. I draw on my medical training, ancient wisdom, modern science, and natural gifts to unlock the root cause of ailment, disease, and genuine healing of the entire person before me.
I am mostly known for my transparency with clients—it is my goal to create a scared space to feel safe and cared for, accepted and loved. This relationship built on honesty, understanding, and trust allows true healing to occur. For this reason, people often refer to me as one of the most impactful healers they have encountered on their healthcare journey.
Getting "sick" reveals us to ourselves and if we dive in and allow it to, getting sick can actually mean getting well. Without the tools to keep mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health strong we can survive, but lack the opportunity to thrive.
I started Motherhood Medicine when I was 6 months postpartum and my attention and consciousness was heavily focused on women who had children. But as I evolved and moved through time my identity and focus shifted, and I started redefining “mother”, “motherhood”, and Motherhood Medicine. I went through a period where I considered renaming my practice, but after deep thought I discovered that the name Motherhood Medicine was still just as appropriate. The clients I serve, with or without children, are the mother of something—in their life they have conceived, grown, birthed, and nurtured their thoughts, health, work, relationships, community, and more. I redefined my work as naturopathic medicine for the modern mother to embody this paradigm shift.
