A new mom related that for every ultrasound, her twisted fetus never moved or even kicked for the entire pregnancy—a huge red flag indicating the Gillespie Approach directly at birth.
If you have been following us on Facebook, you know the gist of how the story unfolded: vaginal delivery five weeks early, fifteen days in the NICU, torticollis, plagiocephaly, helmet, ear tubes, speech, OT, PT, a spectrum diagnosis, and an unsure future.
The doctors/therapists in the Southwest have exhausted their options. After six hours of therapy in Philadelphia over the last three days, his brain cycle went from zero seconds to three hundred seconds. His entire craniosacral fascial system is significantly looser. I am hopeful the Gillespie Approach can result in some life-changing progress for this child.
Bottom line: These tight children need to be screened in the pregnancy and treated at birth, as the first order of business, to mitigate a lifetime of suffering.
