Hello everyone! My name is Natalie Woodring and I am excited to be joining the blogging team for Dayton Parent Magazine. I am a Bellbrook native and now reside in Springboro with my husband, Mark, and two sons, Jameson and Liam. I hope to bring the readers and members of Dayton Parent a fresh insight from a professional, working mother’s prospective. My undergrad studies were done at the University of Dayton and after that I advanced my degree at Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, Missouri to obtain my doctorate in Chiropractic. I am an associate doctor at Take 2 Healthcare where we specialize in nutrition, thermography, and acupuncture. At the clinic I use my maiden name and patients know me as Dr. Natalie Yahle.
It wasn’t until I had children of my own that I really dove deep into the massive amount of information out there regarding pregnancy, infancy, breastfeeding, and all aspects of raising children in general. Sure, there were courses I took in grad school about pediatrics but nothing prepares you more than experiencing it all for yourself. And what a wonderful experience it is!
Having children of my own (18 months apart) has opened my eyes to a whole new world. There is now a much bigger balancing act I have to pull off with work, the kids, the dogs, exercise, grocery shopping, and oh…let’s not forget, showering. I get it now and I have to admit that before I had children, I only thought I got it.
I hope that this blog will be helpful “notes” and advice that all parents can implement in their lives. I am here to share information on nutrition and simple health related matters. Can’t wait to hear from you!
