I am located in Eugene, but can work virtually.  I am always looking to connect and network with others interested in my services.  I am especially interested in working with  professionals in the health and wellness fields as well as those who work with children in schools, daycare, and sports and hobbies.  I am willing to travel if services are requested.


Good health for mother and baby begins before conception and continues well after delivery.  L.E.A.N. Expectations interactive workshops are educational and provide the opportunity for pregnant and post-partum women to connect and build relationships with others while learning practical ways to positively impact the health of both mother and baby before, during, and after pregnancy.  These educational workshops provide science-based information on the four pillars of health:  Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude, and Nutrition.  

L.E.A.N. Expectations is a series of educational workshops designed to teach those preparing for pregnancy, expecting, and nursing mothers, how to care for themselves and their babies.  The program is made up of three separate workshops, each two hours long, that can be taken in sequence or individually.  Dr. Sears' years of pediatric experience make each class relevant to moms in all stages of pregnancy, whether they are carrying their first baby or their fifth.  For each class, you will receive a guide to accompany the topic.  L.E.A.N. Expectations workshops are:

Prepare Right Now

Turn your pregnancy into a healthy new beginning

This class focuses on the lifestyle, exercise, and attitude choices vital for a healthy pregnancy and covers what to avoid during pregnancy and what  expectant mothers should start doing to prepare their body for a healthy birth.  In addition, expectant mothers will learn about the importance of attitude (good mental health) throughout the pregnancy and strategies for coping with stress. The practical strategies taught during this class will assist expectant mothers throughout their pregnancy, and even beyond, as they create and maintain a healthy, satisfying lifestyle.

Eat Right Now

Experience Optimal Nutrition During Pregnancy & Beyond

This class teaches how to incorporate healthy eating into everyday life, not only while pregnant, but also throughout the years ahead.  Expectant mothers will learn what foods and nutrients they need to eat more of during pregnancy and while nursing.  They will also learn what foods to avoid to feel better physically and provide their baby with all the nutrients needed for safe, complete development.  The class also discusses how to shape your baby's tastes to crave healthy food throughout their life.

Live Right Now

Make a Smooth Transition from Pregnancy to Motherhood

This class focuses on how to live a L.E.A.N. Lifestyle after the baby is born.  Mothers will learn how to bond with their baby and how to parent with less tension and more ease.  They will also learn about the importance of good nutrition and exercise in the months after giving birth, and about the need for intentional self-care as they grow into motherhood.
