The Gillespie Approach at Birth 

A five-month-old presents with severe reflux along with choking, hiccuping (also in fetal), coughing, and difficulty burping. These factors all point to a restricted diaphragm. She also has some hip dysplasia, torticollis, poor sleeping habits, and inability to spread her legs to change her diaper (tight adductor fascia).

Mom mentioned that, at every ultrasound visit, the fetus was in the same breech position, buttocks presenting first with the body folded. One would expect that the diaphragm in this sustained position could be predisposed to fascial tightness that would strongly indicate an evaluation at birth.

The following is my ideal world at birth. When a pediatrician examines and declares that a newborn is healthy, all medical pathology has been eliminated. The Gillespie Approach is then responsible for the happy baby aspect. Our work at birth precisely focuses on the physical and emotional fascial traumas of delivery, labor, and fetal life, while the injuries are still fresh.

Does your baby nurse well? Does your baby have gas and indigestion? Does your baby have bowel movements every day? Does your baby nap and sleep well? Does your baby have colic or reflux? Is your baby calm and relaxed? Is your baby comfortable in her body?

We can excel with these common fussy-baby issues. With a strain-free craniosacral fascial system, a truly healthy and happy baby can beautifully come to light.

As an untreated baby develops through life, many additional traumas can occur. Even though therapy can still mitigate these layers of strain post-conception, the ultimate goal is for the work to clear the slate at the beginning of life. Gillespie Approach Training for infants and newborns is a must for all neonatal providers.
