The Physical Congenital Aspect

I love to explore the newborn work because it can hold an important key to who we become.

The genes are fixed, and the epigenetics modifies our gene expression. Our work falls in the congenital category—what is present at birth.

This can be significantly determined by our physical experiences during our forty fetal weeks. The large majority of us have had trauma, which can greatly effect the quality of our lives.

We can deal with it as adults, children, toddlers, infants, newborns, or not at all. The goal of the Gillespie Approach is to address everyone’s core issues as close to birth as possible.

Many physical traumas can affect the soft tissue fascial web. The fetus can be stuck in a position and compressed for an extended period of time. The fascial web can hold the memory of that trauma, possibly for a lifetime.

The uterus and abdominal cavity may be tight, not allowing the fetus to grow comfortably. There can be fibroids in the uterus creating space problems. The cord can be wrapped around the body, especially the neck, creating tightness.

A bicornuate uterus can cause strain. A multiple birth can result in one fetus getting stuck in a certain position and presenting with more health conditions than the other sibling(s).

A long and hard labor can cause more pressure in the body. The delivery can have the traumatic issues of forceps, vacuum-assisted, breech, and shoulder dystocia.

A cesarean section can present with its own set of difficulties in an unnatural setting. Some of the fetuses may need to be manually pulled out of the womb, creating strain patterns in their bodies.

The goal of the work at birth is to mitigate these injuries as soon as possible. I want to restore optimum function of all the body systems so that the infant can breathe well, breastfeed well, digest wellpoop well, and nap well. This is my wish for the world.
