After becoming pregnant and experiencing the motherhood transition herself Dr. Kristen quickly learned her passion was in Prenatal/Postnatal care as well as infant/pediatric care. She is a certified BirthFit Coach and wants the pregnancy and postpartum experience to be different. BirthFit is an empowered and educated state of readiness specific to birth and the motherhood transition.
Labor/Delivery is a sport and Dr. Kristen believes in training specifically for your sport in order to optimize performance. Throughout your pregnancy she will encourage you to stay active with specific exercises and stretches along with specific chiropractic adjustments and soft tissue therapy in order to best prepare and train your physical body to take on pregnancy and all of its changes. Having gone through pregnancy herself she not only has clinical expertise but personal experience to add into individualized care.
Dr. Kristen also specializes in infant/pediatric care after specifically dealing with oral tethered ties with her first daughter. After going through the experience as a parent she quickly learned the ins and outs to oral ties, body work pre and post frenectomy and many other ailments that can occur with pediatric patients like torticollis, plagiocephaly, delay in developmental milestones, constipation, colic and so much more. She continues to work closely with local providers and obtain training to better help these families and children.
When Dr. Kristen is not at the office treating her wonderful patients she is out exploring Cincinnati, trying new foods, attending concerts, and enjoying the outdoors with her husband Dr. Dalton and daughter Oaklee.
