Dr. Elliot Berlin, DC
Dr. Elliot Berlin is an award winning prenatal chiropractor, childbirth educator and labor support bodyworker. His innovative techniques for prenatal wellness care address tight and painful muscles and tendons with specific massage based soft tissue releases together with traditional chiropractic adjustments to restore motion to restricted joints. The unique 'prenatal chirossage' session lasts 30-45 minutes and effectively addresses most pregnancy aches and pains in just a few visits and promotes a healthy, comfortable and functional pregnancy and preparation for an ideal labor and delivery experience. Dr. Berlin also works with several hundred breech babies each year, most of whom turn into the ideal pre-birth position once normal function is restored to the mothers low back and pelvis. Dr. Berlin, a labor support doula, also attends birth, providing the laboring mother with bodywork such as massage, reflexology, acupressure, counter pressure, and chiropractic adjustments to help keep mom relaxed, comfortable and focused and in ideal mind and body condition for smooth, uncomplicated labor and delivery. Dr. Berlin attends labor at hospitals, home and birthing centers and can be instead of or addition to a traditional labor doula.
"I was weeping, because I knew I couldn't labor like this for two more days, and thought I would end up with a cesarean. I continued to get adjustments from Dr. B. After 12 contractions, our baby was born at 5:38 pm. "
"Doctor Berlin is a gentle spirit, super knowledgeable and later we learned is one of THE experts for prenatal chiropractic work and helping turn breech babies. In addition to helping our baby land into position, he helped me with some severe hip pain that was making it hard for me to walk. We are forever grateful!!"
"Dr. Berlin is awesome! I always looked forward to my weekly visits and how relaxed he made me feel. I always left the office feeling great! Wish I could have an appt every day!"
