Dr. Shaina Hickman

Dr. Shaina Hickman is a Cincinnati native with a passion for women's health and pediatric chiropractic. She graduated from Bellarmine University in 2014 with a Bachelors in Psychology and Biology. She then went on to Life University and graduated with her Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2018. She gave birth to her oldest daughter, Isla, half way through her chiropractic education, which sparked her love for all things women's health, pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, postpartum, and BIRTHFIT. She discovered BIRTHFIT when she was one year postpartum. She was looking for guidance on how to return back to the gym and stumbled upon the Birthfit Podcast in 2017. She has a strong passion to help moms in their motherhood transition from preconception-pregnancy-delivery-postpartum. She loves to educate women on our four pillars: fitness, nutrition, connection, and mindset. She believes creating a community around pregnant and postpartum moms is a critical component of having a healthy transition and postpartum period.

Throughout her time in chiropractic school she spent endless hours continuing her education. Dr. Shaina is a Webster Certified Chiropractor and has also completed over half of the  International Certified Pediatric Association program. She has taken courses through CAPPA as a labor doula and childbirth educator. She has taken both BIRTHFIT coach and professional seminars, as well as DNS Women's Health. 

She has also furthered her training on Cranial Nerve Dysfunction under Michelle Emanuel. Dr. Shaina's youngest daughter, Maeve, struggled with tongue and lip ties and she loves helping moms and babies optimize their oral motor skills and breastfeeding journeys.

In Dr. Shaina's free time you can usually find her and her daughters obsessing over Fiona the Hippo. She loves to spend quality time with her husband, Rob. They also love spending time hiking outdoors with their two daughters and German short-haired pointer, Remmy.
