We strive to create individualized treatment plans for each of our patients as each person has a unique history and unique needs. Some of our services include:
Migraines are a recurring kind of headache, usually affecting one side of the head and characterized by their severity. They often have unique symptoms like sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, weakness, and visual anomalies like arcs of light. These symptoms are usually exacerbated by movement, and many find some relief by laying in a dark, quiet room until the migraine subsides. Afterward, during a period called the “postdrome,” you may feel exhausted, weak, and even confused for up to a day.
There are 4 main factors that contribute to the onset of a migraine: Hormonal, Nutritional, Musculoskeletal and Neurological. These 4 factors encompass several known triggers that can vary widely from one person to another.
Having a baby is a big deal. Whether you are going to be a first-time mother or you have a house full of children, it can be a beautiful, complicated, and sometimes overwhelming experience no matter how prepared you may think you are. Fortunately, there are many options when it comes to your emotional and physical care that can help make the pregnancy and childbirth experience less stressful so that you can focus on being the best mom you can be.
What is a doula?
A doula is defined as “a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional, and informational support to a mother before, during, and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.” Doulas operate based on the longstanding tradition of women rallying together to help a new mother, and they serve an important role in the pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum experience. Their expert care has been proven to improve these experiences for mothers and their families, and in some cases has improved outcomes for mother and baby.
