Shieva Ghofrany, MD
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, Shieva harnesses her personal experience coupled with her professional observations to GENUINELY help achieve a calmer perspective. She engages with women on every level to guide them realistically in their quest for understanding of their bodies. What started as an endeavor to connect with other women on Instagram (now with almost 34k followers) led to multiple consulting and speaking engagements live and virtually. As well, she is frequently quoted in online publications such as Self magazine, Huffington Post, MindBodyGreen discussing 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’s been featured on Verywell.com, WebMD, and in the PBS series now on Netflix “HUMAN: the World Within”. As well, she continues to be listed in Castles-Connolly Top Docs each year Through her work as a full-time doctor in private practice as well as through her courses in integrative health—she uses her education AND personal experiences to highlight the mindset we need to tackle our views of our bodies. Shieva is lucky to have had hands-on experience with women of ALL backgrounds to inform her of the female condition.
