Before we talk about your business, tell us who you are?
I am a transplant New Hampshirer, growing up in central NY and moving to NH for college. I enjoy being hiking, kayaking, camping and feeling dirt in my feet. Water fuels my soul, which makes living by the ocean and a short drive to the lakes and mountains ideal.
I am a wife of an incredibly supportive husband and partner in life. And I am a mom of two spunky, curious, soul changing kiddos, age 6 and 2.
Now lets talk business, what sets you apart? How did you start on your journey?
My ﬁrst introduction to birth was in an undergrad course about human development that was taught by a local midwife. She showed us a video of her daughter giving birth at home, and I was fascinated to this new to me concept, which made total sense. This intrigue was set aside after my father suddenly passed away and I questioned my career path and purpose.
After some soul (and internet) searching I found that I could combine by interest in child development/function with hands on care in Physical Therapy. It wasn’t until my ﬁrst internship when I helped a mom walk again without pain after giving birth to her son that I was reminded of my interest in birth and motherhood.
Since earning my Doctor of Physical Therapy, I have devoted my studies and work to learning and exploring how I can best serve women’s health during the maternal years. I have extensive training in pelvic ﬂoor examination and treatment, prenatal and postpartum musculoskeletal-neuromuscular care and exercise, and myofascial release, as well as additional training in Spinning Babies. I then earned my Board Certiﬁcation as a Women’s Health Specialist.
After having my daughter’s birth, I started my own practice to focus exclusively with moms. I have continued to narrow my scope after my son was born to become even more of an expert in pregnancy support and birth preparation to provide women the opportunity to be proactive about their physical self as it transforms into a mother.
My services are available as local concierge visits, virtual visits as well as a self paced online guide, The Bailey Birth Method.
