The holiday’s can be a busy time of year. Whether it’s finding time for self care or you need a resource to help “get it all done”, it always helps to have a good referral. Today on The 425 Show I had the pleasure of chatting with my good friend, Jenni Heuberger, a nurse practitioner with Bellegrove OBGYN  in Bellevue. She is my number one go to gal on tips in taking care of yourself around the 425 area.

Bellegrove OBGYN is a dedicated team of board certified Obstetrician-Gynecologists providing general obstetrics and gynecology, along with additional services in high risk obstetrics, infertility, in-office surgery, laser hair removal, and all areas of family planning.

Practicing for over 15 years, Jenni is amazing at putting her patients at ease, finding the right solution, and encourages all women to take time for themselves in and out of their office year-round. She is a wealth of information on everything health related, and has the best tips on taking off some the holiday stress- from getting your hair done, makeup for a holiday party, and even hiring your own personal high school elf to watch the kids, or help in the endless gift wrapping.

Check out Jenni’s services she uses each year from personal self-care to in home holiday services:
