We sought long and hard for the perfect location in the Indianapolis area, and are thrilled to now be serving clients on Rangeline Road in Carmel! We are located near the vibrant art and design district in downtown Carmel. Did you know Carmel is among the healthiest communities in the state, and among the best places to live in the country? We have to agree and are loving our growing clientele base in this area. What a welcoming community!
Dr. Lane is here four days a week consulting with clients who are either primary care clients, or working within one of our wellness programs. We can serve all healthcare needs for women throughout their entire life span and specialize in maternity care, thyroid health, anxiety and depression, infertility, leaky gut, adrenal stress, menopause, sexual dysfunction and Dr. Lane provides frenotomy services to both neonates and adults.
The Carmel site is host to the Functional Forum the first Monday of each month and has had the pleasure of meeting a number of functionally minded physicians, nurse practitioners, wellness coaches, nutritionist, and many other diverse specialists. If you’re interested in networking with integrative and functionally minded clinicians, join us! Register here for the Carmel site so we can prepare for you, and bring a friend!
Our retail boutique, the Red Raspberry Boutique, is open during clinic hours. We offer a plethora of the highest quality nutraceuticals, botanicals, essential oils, women’s healthcare products, baby carriers, cloth diapers, nursing bras, organic baby toys, bulk teas, and just about anything Dr. Lane has desired for herself or family. Our staff also offer a number of classes concerning natural healthcare and mothering. Visit our event page or Facebook page for upcoming classes.
Kristin is our Clinic Coordinator. If you’ve called the office, she has answered your questions and helped you find your way into one of our many programs, classes or consultations with Dr. Lane. This is her beautiful office and where new clients will learn about our practice model and where those new to any one of our programs will receive orientation and ongoing guidance. If you have any questions, she will certainly have an answer for you. Feel free to drop in anytime you may have a question or administrative need.
Dr. Lane has created each space in the office with purpose. Kristin’s office has a number of blue and white ceramic vases that are reminiscent of Dr. Lane’s childhood in Holland. As many of our clients appreciate, Holland holds the very best outcomes for childbearing women in the world and their women utilize midwifery more frequently than any other culture. Dr. Lane remembers regularly seeing women breastfeed openly as a child and being awestruck by the beauty and brilliance of the Lord’s design but after moving to the states, didn’t see another mother breastfeed again until she was assisting new mothers as a nurse. Her roots in Holland shaped her future midwifery career.
Each of our rooms are also home to a number of geodes, which encourage staff as we embark upon the rather uncharted territory of independent practice for nurse-midwives. You never know what you have within you until the pressure cracks you open. The amethyst crystals are quite inspirational and remind us how far we have come in midwifery and how many women we have also seen discover their own inner beauty because of the services we have been blessed to offer over the past decade.
Our office is also filled with inspirational quotes, fresh flowers, filtered water, fresh teas, detoxifying plants, and of course, diffusing essential oils. We truly live what we preach!
Dr. Lane prioritizing educating her clients and so a large part of the clinic is dedicated to space for speaking engagements, group classes, and even networking among providers or training of other clinicians.
Filtered water and fresh ice, as well as tea, is always available for clients. On occasion you’ll find fresh fruits, nuts or cheese, but these go quickly!
Canvases throughout the space are all gifts from our clients. They are reminders of how blessed we are to serve families through their childbearing years and beyond, building the relationship beyond birth to addressing chronic disease issues and even maintaining optimal health. Dr. Lane is increasingly seeing the daughters and mothers of our birthing families now as well, which is an honor.
The Carmel office has an additional consult room, which isn’t nearly as beautiful yet as Kristin’s office and then two treatment rooms. Dr. Lane has her own office in the back and we have a staff training and prepping area for clinical needs.
Consultations with Dr. Lane are generally an hour in length so these occur in our more comfortable space, within the private consult room, and then any necessary procedures or assessments occur within either treatment room.
Dr. Lane sees all new clients and provides all the functional midwifery consultations. Both she and Kristin are available in the office daily. Rachel is available part time, primarily assisting with the maternity program. She is a master’s prepared, direct entry midwife that complements Dr. Lane’s training perfectly.
The Red Raspberry Boutique was inspired because Dr. Lane struggled to find great products for her clients within the community. It has grown quickly to include a plethora of nutraceuticals she recommends to her clients, as well as essential oils, botanicals, teas, and of course, natural living products such as natural feminine and self care products, cloth diapers, breastfeeding gear, baby carriers and so much more.
After finding great difficulty in locating a prenatal Dr. Lane preferred, she worked with a nutritionist to create a proprietary blend that is now sold in the Red Raspberry Boutique. She spends hours upon hours, months upon months, researching product lines, manufacturing practices, marketing approaches, and earth-friendly practices, choosing only those products that she would recommend to her own clients.
We love getting mail! Our clients often send us cards of appreciation, encouraging letters, and family updates! We love these little reminders of the families we serve!
