Dr. Shannon Vander Doelen has been a pillar to the Yoga Mamas community since she began her time here as our Naturopathic Doctor. Her mission has been to support mamas in making simple and sustainable changes to support their overall health. Shannon is licensed with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO). She is a member of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND) and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND). With a focus on maternal health and fertility, her practice has helped countless women to restore balance in their hormonal systems, improve fertility and feel awesome overall!
Shannon is celebrating the birth of her first child, her beautiful little daughter, and has announced that she will not be returning to Yoga Mamas in order to take some extra time for her family. We are incredibly sad to see her go. We cherish the time she spent with us and wish her all the best on her next chapter.
With the health of her patients so close to her heart, Shannon has ensured that her departure from Yoga Mamas need not interfere with the continuity of your care. If you would like to continue pursuing your health and wellness goals at Yoga Mamas, Dr. Nikita Sander will be taking over Naturopathic services, transitioning smoothly from her time covering Shannon’s maternity.
If you would like to congratulate Shannon on her baby or ask her any questions related to her practice, she welcomes you to contact her at shannon@shannonND.ca or on her website at www.shannonND.ca.
