I have helped thousands of moms with the most common and most challenging issues that motherhood can throw at you. All too often I see women get so much attention, education and focus on them when pregnant or during childbirth, but after everyone moves on quickly or tells mom that they are “fine” despite them feeling the exact opposite. Our medical system and birth system move on shortly after the baby is born and most moms are left surfing the internet for answers in the middle of the night, feeling alone and overwhelmed. I am here to help end that overwhelm.
With over 15 years of experience focusing on postpartum women, I have helped thousands of moms just like you overcome the most common and challenging issues that come with motherhood. With a background as a chiropractor, perinatal health coach, functional medicine provider, certified health coach, postpartum corrective exercise specialist, and international board-certified lactation consultant, I've had the privilege of witnessing firsthand the challenges, questions, and triumphs that come with being a mom. I know first hand what new moms face and have helped thousands of women feel more confident about themselves during this huge transition and empowered to embrace motherhood with confidence.
My approach is steeped in science, but driven from the heart.
"She is the best medical professional I have ever worked with. She is compassionate, truly listens and sorts out what the highest priority is for you as a person."
Dr. Gerbi is amazing. She is the best medical professional I have ever worked with. She is compassionate, truly listens and sorts out what the highest priority is for you as a person. I was in extreme pain in my left hip and she not only properly adjusted it at our first appointment but she also referred me out to several other medical professionals who could give me more information to understand the underlying problems. Dr. Gerbi addresses your health in a comprehensive manner. She has helped me find long-term solutions. She is a wealth of information and extremely smart. She uses her gifts to help people. - MH
"Dr. Gerbi has been instrumental in the success of my son and I’s breastfeeding journey."
Dr. Gerbi has been instrumental in the success of my son and I’s breastfeeding journey. I had been to providers previously, who could not pin point the issue with my “colicky” son or the feeding issues we had. However, after just a few visits, Michelle had provided us with the tools necessary to not only make breastfeeding a reality, but also enjoyable. I’m so grateful! - SB
"Dr Gerbi was a lifesaver during and after my pregnancy."
She helped me stay pain free and comfortable during the 3rd trimester. I was able to exclusively breastfeed my baby because of the gentle soft tissue work she did on my baby to help correct her latch. At 9 months postpartum, I am able to exercise like I did pre-pregnancy and my Caesarean scar zone feels smooth and painless.
Dr. Gerbi is truly a pregnancy, postpartum and lactation expert. She is friendly, understanding and always a joy to see. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr Gerbi for your pregnancy and postpartum care. - KN
"Dr. Gerbi went out of her way to make time for me on her schedule. She is one of the nicest and most caring medical providers I have ever had. If it were not for her I would have never survived my breastfeeding days."
I was struggling with breastfeeding and had many issues with mastitis, MRSA, and multiple clogged ducts. A friend referred me to Dr. Gerbi and told me she was the "mommy guru." I had no idea what type of help I was going to receive, but I am extremely grateful for all of the help and support I received from Dr. Gerbi. She was able to provide me with so much relief and had so much knowledge around ways to help me with my breastfeeding issues. She was able to provide me with ideas and plans to help me stop breastfeeding in a safe way so I did not get Mastitis again.
Dr. Gerbi went out of her way to make time for me on her schedule. She is one of the nicest and most caring medical providers I have ever had. If it were not for her I would have never survived my breastfeeding days. Thank you, Dr. Gerbi! - AR
"Her incredible knowledge and understanding enabled me to feel empowered to make the right choices for myself and babies."
Dr. Gerbi, single handedly supported me through my prenatal and postpartum phases. Her incredible knowledge and understanding enabled me to feel empowered to make the right choices for myself and babies. Her care and bedside manner carried me (and my children) through many challenges. We faced preterm birth, severe pelvic & leg varicosities, tongue/lip tie procedures, poor latch/nipple pain, mastitis, thrush, and oversupply issues, just to name a few. Dr. Gerbi remained encouraging, optimistic, honest, and informed. If she could not provide the care herself, she referred me to only the best specialists.
Thanks to her expertise, I had successful extended breastfeeding journeys with both of my children. I’m forever grateful for her support. - LM
"Michelle is the very best combination of friendliness and relatability while having incredible expertise in this field. She is warm, supportive, and SO understanding of the realities of motherhood."
Michelle is a miracle worker. I had nearly given up on feeling myself again after childbirth, especially living in a rural area with limited options. By traditional medical standards I had uncomplicated pregnancies and births, including an “ideal” twin pregnancy and delivery, and was perfectly healthy. But I didn’t feel healthy. My body didn't feel "right," my core felt hollow and powerless, and I was doing my best to ignore minor pain and sustaining increasing injuries while trying to juggle motherhood and a demanding job. I was referred to Michelle several times by friends who raved about her, but hesitated due to time, cost, doubt, etc. I finally reached out when my back pain was so severe I couldn't pick up my kids, and knew I had to do something. My only regret is that I didn't reach out sooner (like as soon as we decided to try to get pregnant)! Michelle is the very best combination of friendliness and relatability while having incredible expertise in this field. She is warm, supportive, and SO understanding of the realities of motherhood, and what pace of rehab is actually possible and reasonable when raising small humans. She not only diagnosed and adjusted my body, she also educated me on the various physiological issues that were causing my pain, explained details of the healing process, helped me recognize and activate areas of my core that I had lost touch with, and gave me tons of resources to support continued rehabilitation at home.
I am so grateful that Michelle is available virtually as well as in person, making it so much easier for me to access care when needed. The best advice I can give to any moms or moms-to-be is to meet with Michelle sooner than later! - KS
"She both reinforced my maternal instincts and shared with me her wealth of knowledge in postpartum, lactation and newborn care. I truly can’t recommend Dr. Gerbi more strongly. She’s a treasure for all moms and babies."
I have been a patient of Dr. Gerbi for 4 years. As a primary care provider myself, I’ve found Dr. Gerbi’s care to be invaluable to my pregnancy and postpartum journey. We have seen her for chiropractic care, lactation support & cranio-sacral therapy. She has skillfully supported my family through two pregnancies and beyond. Her tender, compassionate and evidence based approach to mother and baby care has been exactly what we needed through the new parent journey.
With my two girls, I’ve encountered numerous feeding and postpartum concerns - tongue ties to feeding tubes to poor latch to mastitis to pelvic floor dysfunction and more. Every challenge I encountered, Dr. Gerbi took in stride with a listening ear and well-informed treatment and recommendations. Her expert hands were the first to identify the low muscle tone in my newborn daughter that a neurologist had missed just days prior!
In coaching me, she both reinforced my maternal instincts and shared with me her wealth of knowledge in postpartum, lactation and newborn care. I truly can’t recommend Dr. Gerbi more strongly. She’s a treasure for all moms and babies. - CV
"Not only is Dr. Gerbi an absolute wealth of information, but she is also extremely warm and personable."
I saw Dr. Gerbi in the hopes of creating more space for my breech baby to flip, and I am so glad I did! Not only did my baby turn after only two sessions, but she has helped my entire body to feel better than I even thought possible during the last months of pregnancy. I am consistently blown away by how much easier I can breathe and get around after leaving her office! When I see a healthcare practitioner, I want to actually get results for my money, and with Dr. Gerbi, that is exactly what I get. Not only is Dr. Gerbi an absolute wealth of information, but she is also extremely warm and personable. I look forward to working with her to maximize postpartum healing, as well as utilizing her lactation consulting expertise. - KC
"Dr. Michelle is one of those unique individuals that offers that nurturing, mother-like support while empowering you at the same time"
I believe every mother, especially new mothers, needs a circle of support around her that mothers her too. Dr. Michelle is one of those unique individuals that offers that nurturing, mother-like support while empowering you at the same time. I’m always amazed by her vast knowledge of the unique needs of mothers and babies—and her incredible hands-on skills. But more than any of that, I’m just so grateful I’ve had her in my corner through both of my pregnancies and these early years of motherhood. I can’t imagine having done this without her on my team! - AA
