Veronica is passionate about prenatal health; she promotes natural childbirth, extended breastfeeding, cloth diapering, attachment parenting, natural family living, whole and organic foods. It is her mission to spread the knowledge of natural family living through Murrieta and the surrounding areas. With the cooperation of Temecula Valley's network of holistic practitioners, Midwives, Doulas and Childbirth Educators, her mission is quickly unfolding before her eyes. She has coordinated many exciting educational events with her husband, Dr. Todd Donohoe, D.C., D.I.C.C.P.
In 1993, Veronica delivered her son, Silas, 9.7 lbs naturally with help from a midwife, in a Los Angeles area hospital. Her second child, Marissa, 8.5 lbs. was born at home in 2005 with the help of a midwife and her husband. Veronica's oldest son and two step-children were present and witnessed the birth of their newest sibling. She attended Bradley Method classes in order to successfully birth naturally. Additionally, she received and benefited from adjustments regularly from Dr. Donohoe in preparation for labor.
Veronica's holistic passions are natural childbirth and extended breastfeeding. She shares her beliefs, experience and delicious recipes in her blog, Kingdom Heart Mom. She is abreast (pun intended) of many activism issues surrounding birthing, breastfeeding and natural healing. She encourages all women to listen to their God-given intuition when making decisions regarding their health and the health of their children.
In 2008, Veronica co-founded the Temecula Valley Chapter of Holistic Moms Network, a non-profit support and discussion group dedicated to supporting families with an interest in natural health, green living, and mindful parenting.
The Donohoe's tight-knit family includes four children, a daughter-in-law and a grandson. She has successfully put into practice all that she passionately shares with her community. Her children have been raised naturally, avoiding unnecessary chemicals, medical interventions and they have even experienced the beauty of birthing at home.
