Charlie Foust


Charlie is an Assistant based at our Alexandria Clinic, currently in her 3rd year of Traditional Chinese Medicine study. Charlie, her husband and two teenage children embarked on an adventure when they moved to Sydney from the US 4 years ago. In the states, Charlie was most recently a doula, childbirth educator and lactation consultant. She has a long history of advocacy in the area of women’s health and birth, even lobbying legislatively for the rights of birthing families. The move to Australia inspired Charlie to embark on a new career path and the study of Chinese medicine, as it resonates with her beliefs about the interconnectedness of our body, mind, and our environment. In her study, Charlie is also currently a student practitioner and has developed a strong interest in women’s and mental health. Charlie loves her role at The Acupuncture Pregnancy Clinic not only as she is able to watch and learn from practitioners, but also as she is able to witness and hold space for patients in their journey- an incredibly vulnerable and powerful experience.

Charlie enjoys listening to stories of the human experience, slow travel, and gardening.

Charlie is known for her warmth, calming presence and warm hands.
