If you are interested in scheduling an appointment with Kasie for a pregnancy or birth related issue, please contact her directly, before scheduling. She can be reached immediately via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The online schedule is reserved for community acupuncture patients.
Kasie has been working in the Tampa Bay birth community for almost 10 years. Prior to owning Calm Community Acupuncture, she was in private practice in Safety Harbor, treating only women, specializing in infertility, pregnancy, labor, lactation consulting and post partum difficulties. She was a birth doula for 8 years, attending many births from hospital settings to birth center to home. She now focuses on community style acupuncture, read about that here but still enjoys some precious time with the amazing women in the birth community, here in Pinellas County.
One of the things that sets her apart from other Acupuncturists, when it comes to treating women, is her own, personal life experience. Kasie had 3 daughters, in 5 years, and each birth was a different experience, teaching her so much about the process and how it feels to experience it. From an all natural, birth center experience at Labor of Love in Dunedin, to an emergency forceps delivery in hospital to a hospital C-Section, she’s experienced nearly all types of delivery, personally. Kasie suffered from severe emotional birth trauma, after her first daughter’s birth, paired with post-partum depression and she also endured some physical trauma during the birth of her second daughter. She can relate to almost anything you might be going through and she’ll feel it on a personal level. There’s just nothing like personal experience to help create empathy and understanding.
“ I found my way to Kasie, while in waiting for my 2nd baby to arrive. I was at 41 weeks and yet to go into labor. She did all the acupuncture points to get labor going but it was so much more. Her loving words moved me and resonated in my heart as I went into labor. Being in her presence put me at ease and prepared me for welcoming this new soul into our home. I went into labor within 24 hours of the acupuncture treatment but I left with so much more than just a treatment, I felt so balanced, relaxed, grounded and connected. So grateful to have Kasie in this community of women!”
