My family searched for years for a chiropractor we could trust, and who also helped in pregnancy and with children. We didn’t realize when we started searching how difficult this would be! When we were pregnant with our fourth child, our doula told us about Dr. Angie. At first I visited her by myself, without the children, and found her so helpful with not only the adjustment, but also her knowledge and practical help for how I could better care for myself in pregnancy, that I scheduled an appointment for our whole family immediately.
That was almost 6 years and three births ago! I can’t imagine having those three children in pregnancy, birth and post pardum without Dr. Angie. Her expertise in pregnancy and caring for children has made all the difference for me—carrying babies in pregnancy more comfortably, preparing for birth, realigning after birth and caring for ‘momma sores’ of holding/carrying/feeding baby; and for our children–getting adjusting within hours/days of birth, and monthly thereafter for ear infections, teething, headaches, car sickness, and all the wear and tear of busy, growing children.
My husband was the most skeptical of all of chiropractors, and it didn’t talked long for him to esteem Dr. Angie based on her care for our family and his own experience of being adjusted by her skillful hands. He is a big guy, and he has found Dr. Angie has the confidence and strength to adjust him wonderfully. After a car accident, he went to Dr. Angie more regularly to help with his pain, and was impressed how steadily and quickly he received pain relief and healing through her chiropractic care.
Our children love coming to Dr Angie’s office, and send up cheers when I announce we’re headed for an adjustment there. Our 15 month old started climbing up onto the adjustment table recently and laid down in adjustment position, not letting anyone but Dr Angie come near! Even after his turn, when everyone else is adjusted, he climbs BACK onto the table because he loves it so much. And feels better afterwards. There are countless times the kids complain of an earache, and after a visit to Dr. Angie it’s no longer a complaint. Or an infant/toddler who hasn’t pooped for a while, who poops before we even leave Dr. Angie’s office after an adjustment.
I really could write a very long story, but what I most want to communicate is that Dr. Angie is reliable, great with kids, a specialist for pregnancy and children (from newborn to adults!), able to adjust anyone, a wealth of knowledge on health options, and a delightful care provider who really wants to help. I would (and have!) highly recommend her to anyone! -Heidi F.
