How does Balanced Wellness and Birth serve the community? There are very few pregnancy and postpartum-focused mental health clinics in the area. We serve our local area, other areas across the state and along the east coast.
Theresa, how has networking shaped and grown your practice? I operated independently for a year until I met Alex at a networking event. The presence of another strong leader to provide support, engage in networking activities and explore various possibilities has demonstrated the benefits of collaboration. We now have a team of 11 staff and growing.
Alex, do you feel that this area is conducive to networking? In our healthcare practice we foster connections, conduct research to understand the community’s needs and established a collaborative alliance for health/wellness experts. These connections aim to enhance our ability to serve the community effectively.

What sets you apart from other women’s healthcare providers?
1. We offer everything in-house, so people don’t have to track down other services. We are also all trained by Postpartum Support International, the certifying agency for perinatal mental health.
2. We are one of the few perinatal/reproductive mental health clinics that serve across the east coast with access to care for our military families. We offer online therapy to residents throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Virginia and Florida.
3. As working mothers, our team has been through and continues to navigate the ocean of parenting. We have been where you are and know how you feel. We have selected our team members thoughtfully to create a strong base of diverse backgrounds and skill sets. We aim to pair you with the most appropriate team members for your journey to best serve you.
