Chiropractic is considered safe and effective for the management of musculoskeletal complaints during pregnancy such as back and neck pain, pelvic pain, pubic symphysis pain, sciatica and headaches.
I also offer recommendations specific to your perinatal journey, including advice for optimal fetal positioning and postural and everyday functional support for pregnancy, breastfeeding and post-partum recovery.
Working alongside your antenatal care-providers, many women have found regular chiropractic care beneficial in supporting them through pregnancy and postpartum.
Chiropractic care for babies is a gentle and safe treatment option to help release physical tension, address movement concerns and encourage optimal physical function and development for your baby. Common reasons parents may consult a paediatric chiropractor for their baby include;
An inability to turn their head to one side
An inability to move their body or extremities as they should
For assessment following a difficult or traumatic birth
To assist in the recovery of any physical injury sustained during birth or, following any falls or bumps
Plagiocephaly (Flat Head Syndrome)
Body work for breast-feeding or latch issues
Concerns regarding developmental milestones
Chiropractic care for infants and small children does not utilise the same joint manipulation techniques used for adults.

I completed my Bachelor of Chiropractic Science and Master of Chiropractic at Sydney's Macquarie University in 2010, and have additionally completed further qualifications in pregnancy and paediatric care, developmental neurology and breastfeeding and lactation.For more than 12 years I have been fortunate to work alongside other pregnancy and childbirth professionals, offering a wide range of treatment options for perinatal and paediatric concerns, as well as comprehensive breastfeeding and lactation support.
Perhaps more importantly, I'm also a mother.
Motherhood has found me knowing now more than ever, the importance of supporting women to feel comfortable, strong and empowered through pregnancy, birth and beyond.
