Physical Therapy is the science and art of assessing the structure, movement, beliefs and values of a human in order to optimize function. I adhere to the idea that Physical Therapists, first and foremost, are teachers of Physical Literacy. We may not be able to change pathology, but we can sure as heck help you understand your body more thoroughly so you understand the importance of our clinical prescriptions and recommendations.
Becoming a Doula has made me a better Physical Therapist. Being a Physical Therapist gave me a great starting point as a Doula. In the role of Doula, I provide hands-on, continuous labor support for a laboring person and their partner from the minute they think they need me until after the birth. Research has shown that hiring a Doula is the most effective way to decrease your chance of delivering via cesarean surgery.
Join me every third Monday of the month at Blossom Baby Boutique from 5:30 – 7:30 PM for my “Birth It!” Labor Skills Workshop. This is a workshop designed to give very focused education on pain coping strategies and hands-on skills for partners to decrease stress and fear while keeping the labor train on tracks.
