Dr Shieva Ghofrany strives to help people eliminate their fear by being “proactive not paranoid” about their health. An OBGYN since 1999 and co-creator of TRIBE CALLED V, her intention is to “increase our knowledge to decrease our anxiety”.
Having travailed 6 miscarriages, 3 births, endometriosis, weight loss surgery AND ovarian cancer, she’s harnessed her personal experience coupled with her professional observations to GENUINELY help achieve a calmer perspective.She loves engaging with women on every level to guide them realistically in their quest for understanding of their bodies and minds.
What started as an endeavor to connect with other women on Instagram (now with almost 47k followers) led to multiple consulting and speaking engagements live and virtually. As well she is frequently quoted in online publications such as Self, Huffington Post, and Parents where she discusses an array of women’s issues. Perhaps most prevalent is the request for her to address the mindset of fear surrounding health issues in general and cancer in particular, given her own experience with ovarian cancer and the surgeries and chemotherapy they required. She has been listed on Top Doctors with Castle Connolly for years and she has also been featured on Verywell.com, WebMD, and in the PBS series now on Netflix “HUMAN: the World Within” which have satisfied her long term pipe-dream of becoming a talk show host;)
Through her work as a doctor in private practice as well as through her courses in integrative health—she’s used her education, clinical experience AND personal journey to highlight the mindset she believes we all NEED to tackle our views of our bodies. She often notes how lucky she feels to have had hands-on experience with women of ALL backgrounds to inform her of the female condition.
Under the playful tag @biglovefiercejuju, Shieva has organically grown her following to over 50k by openly addressing a range of OBGYN issues with honesty, levity and accuracy.
