Hope D.

Amanda is a miracle worker. I came in around 5-6 months pregnant feeling pretty miserable and debilitated from sciatica and lower back pain. She gave me a few exercises to do and it’s helped me a lot since then. Now I’m almost 9 months along and I still haven’t had any issues with sciatica or my lower back. This has been a very difficult pregnancy and through it all she’s helped me not only with my pain but also taught me a lot of exercises and positions to make birth easier, helped me find a birth educator and to get a doula to help ease the anxiety of giving birth for the first time. She’s very knowledgeable about anatomy and what kind of exercises and positions help with pain, but her kindness, compassion and giving nature are what really stick with me. I see doctors at the hospital 4-5x a week because my pregnancy is high risk and not one of them sticks out to me as much as Amanda does because she’s always tons more thorough and warmhearted than any of my doctors and I never feel like just another digit in a sea of faceless numbers as I do in the hospital. If you’re having pain, I would highly recommend seeing her because she is truly fantastic at what she does.
