“Happy, healthy mothers give birth to happy and healthy children, which is the foundation for strong and vibrant communities. Let’s build ours together.” - Dr. Shaila
PRENATAL AND PREGNANCY CARE
Chiropractic is a natural health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs and surgery.
The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.
Dr. Shaila is trained and certified in the Webster technique, a specialized technique used specifically for pregnant women, to address the changing needs of your body.
Chiropractic care has been shown to reduce and eliminate back pain, control nausea, and balance the pelvis, helping to minimize interventions during labour.
POSTNATAL CARE AND RECOVERY
Regardless of the type of delivery you had, giving birth is an intense experience in which the body pushes itself, causing stress and strains that can last well after your baby arrives.
Postnatal Chiropractic care gently guides the body back into balance and ensures proper alignment, allowing you to focus on what matters most - your growing family.
Trained by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, Dr. Shaila has the knowledge and experience to gently work with children from birth and beyond.
Care plans are designed to support healthy brain and body development, improve digestion and immune function, and contribute to the overall well being of your child.
What Families Say
My family and I are so grateful for Dr. Shaila!! We started seeing her for our baby girl's colic and feeding problems, which she helped resolve. Now we see her on a regular basis as the entire family feels better with every visit. Dr. Shaila has single-handedly improved my baby's sleep too! She takes the time to really listen to your concerns and offer her knowledge the best way she can. She has also given us great advice on various health and child development areas. I would strongly recommend Dr. Shaila for chiropractic care for kids and the entire family!
What New Parents Say
Dr. Shaila was essential in helping my infant daughter feel more comfortable, sleep better and cry less. Dr. Shaila was gentle and explained everything she found upon examination of my daughter and in her treatments. I can not recommend Dr. Shaila enough!
What Moms-to-Be Say
I’m 7 months pregnant now and I don’t know if I would be doing as well as I am if it wasn’t for Dr. Shaila. She not only ensures that my body is aligned and healthy, but she is also my prenatal mentor and health partner. She has offered nutritional advice through each stage of my pregnancy, helping me cope with the first trimester nausea, food aversions, and offering creative ways to get enough nutrients despite these aversions. I will definitely be having Dr. Shaila check my baby within days of delivery.
