home visits in Needham, MA and surrounding towns
Brooke Reilly is a seasoned Occupational Therapist with a rich medical and rehabilitation background gained from 16 years practicing in multiple world renowned hospitals and clinics, such as Brigham & Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). Over the last few years, Brooke’s professional and personal experience birthed a more focused passion: to serve women, specifically, those amidst major life transitions, such as entering motherhood. She has seen for herself what it’s like to experience the physical and emotional challenges that come in the fourth trimester and beyond, and to not feel prepared for them: muscle weakness, severe fatigue, the seemingly impossible feat of breastfeeding, relationship changes, pelvic pain, to name a few.
Her training and qualifications specific to women’s health practice include integrative perinatal health, nutrition, pelvic health, motivational interviewing, musculoskeletal injury prevention in new mothers, maternal mental health and more. Brooke is facilitator trained in the MotherWoman model for supporting women with perinatal mental health complications. She is also an active member of Postpartum Support International. She Thrives Therapy Services are provided in the client’s home to maximize comfort and convenience, and also to ensure that goals can be derived from observation of how the client engages in her own environment. Intervention is geared towards therapeutic exercise and activity, mental wellness support, and strategizing for occupational balance, with a heavy emphasis on education, adaptation, and establishing a strong mothering foundation through self-care concepts.
