We are Dr. Erica Bullock and Dr. Emily DeRocco, resident chiropractors for NOVA Natural Birth Center.
First and foremost, we are moms too!
From Dr. Erica:
I have three amazing little girls and a son born at home in October 2016. I have had chiropractic care throughout all of my pregnancies, so I have experienced the benefits firsthand. My first child was born in a birth center, the last two were planned home births. I thoroughly enjoyed each birth experience and love to share those experiences with other moms, they need to hear positive birth stories. I love giving prenatal care because it is a perfect example of the profound power of a chiropractic adjustment. It is so much more than just pain relief. It is about support of function and optimal health. With prenatal care, this means not only are you more comfortable, but your body is better able to support and nurture your growing baby, and labor and birth are a faster and easier process.
From Dr. Emily:
I am lucky to be the mother of my daughter born at home in August of 2011, my son delivered at home in October of 2013, and baby number three born at home in August of 2016! What an adventure motherhood is! I love being able to share my experiences with other moms through my Natural Parenting Class series and in the office at one-on- one appointments. Chiropractic is a lifestyle and I love sharing that lifestyle with my patients. I have been a chiropractic patient since I was a young child and I LOVE getting adjusted! My children are also big fans of getting adjusted and often argue over who will be adjusted first.
As NOVA Natural Birth Center’s resident chiropractors, we get to spend more quality time with our patients. For a standard appointment, we devote thirty minutes to address nutrition, exercise and stress management, other health related decisions, birth planning, and perform treatment. We are here to support you in taking charge of your health, achieving the natural birth experience you desire, and protecting the health of your family.
