Mara treated me for my last two pregnancies and I’m so lucky that I found her. Although excited to be a mom (again), my hypermobility and pelvic pain made regular tasks like getting in and out of bed or walking painfully difficult. Mara gave me tools to help me regain my stability, manage, and even enjoy the remainder of my pregnancies. I can’t thank her enough and I’m so glad to know that I have someone that is qualified to help me should I need it in the future!
