MEET DR. GILLIAN
Dr. Gillian has focused her career caring for moms and their children. She lost her own mother as she entered motherhood. This void, disconnection and loss has perpetually fuelled her passion to create an authentic safe space for women to be seen, heard and feel well taken care of in their motherhood journey. To reconnect to themselves and their body.
The opportunity to walk with women through this sometimes horribly lonely, often joy filled, and always exhausting season has been a blessing. Each time another says, ‘same’, offers an assuring nod or let’s their shoulders down, her cup gets filled, the void gets smaller and her drive strengthens. To all of the wise, strong and caring women I have met along the way, thank you. I’m eternally grateful to have shared this journey with you.
THIS IS A COMMUNITY WHERE YOU ARE SEEN, SUPPORTED AND ENCOURAGED BY A DOCTOR & MAMA WALKING THE PATH OF MOTHERHOOD ALONGSIDE YOU.
And enjoy immediate access to hours of tutorials and guidance to start feeling better right now.
Dr. Gillian received her DC from CMCC in Toronto, Ontario. She was born in Calgary, raised on Vancouver Island, now lives in Redwood Meadows and practices alongside the Cochrane Community Midwives and the Mountain Maternity & Family Medicine Physicians most days of the week. Dr. Gillian is a proud mama of 2 girls and a Chiropractor for moms & babes.
She’s dedicated her career to helping moms function with minimal pain through pregnancy, prepare their bodies for labour, support them through postpartum recovery and the transition into motherhood.
Her passion sits heavily in supporting moms in the perinatal period. To normalize, educate, create understanding, connection and community.
To create an authentic safe space for women to be seen, heard and feel well taken care of. To help women reconnect to themselves and their body through breath, movement and body awareness.
Since going through many ups and downs in her own motherhood journey, Dr. Gillian has had the honor of co-creating “Movement & Motherhood”. These Retreats & Workshops were designed to embody all of the above, to fill in the gaps with postpartum education and to create a sacred space for moms to reconnect with themselves in Motherhood.
Additionally, the need for more support in the postpartum period and throughout different stages of Motherhood pushed her to create an online space for moms called "The Postpartum Pilot." To help navigate Motherhood, providing a space for moms to connect, share, validate and normalize their experiences.
"but what if once you completely unravel you begin to reweave the beautiful fabric of who you are becoming?
With joy comes heartbreak. You can't feel one without the other. In my most recent book, You've Got This, Boss Mama I share my experience of becoming a mom and losing my mom simultaneously. The journey, balance, struggle of navigating motherless motherhood, my career and coming back home to myself again.
