Charmagne’s lifelong passion for natural healing made the career choice to study Naturopathic Medicine very easy. Upon completing her science degree at the University of Calgary, Charmagne started her studies at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto. Her interest in pregnancy and lactation led to a mentorship with Dr. Jack Newman. The desire to specialize in pre and postnatal support inspires Charmagne’s continual studies to become a Doula and Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), advocating for early detection and treatment of breastfeeding challenges within the first 24 hours following the birth of a child.

Combining the healing modalities of Naturopathic Medicine with medical training as a Lactation Consultant allows her to offer unique, comprehensive care for pregnant and nursing women. As one of Canada’s only ND and Doula/Lactation focus, Dr. Charmagne Sia Lu is thrilled to offer truly holistic, scientific pre and post natal medical care.
