Our Story

Womb For Growth was founded by Dr. Colleen Holland, a chiropractor and physical medicine expert with a functional medicine approach.  Since 2002, she has offered effective and comprehensive perinatal and pediatric chiropractic care; helping families through their transitions of growth.  She noticed that many of the challenges that mothers and babies experienced during pregnancy and post-partum had a common origin of  hormonal imbalances, menstrual, and digestive irregularities. Most discouraging was that most women were told this is normal.

Throughout her life and career, Dr. Holland became keenly aware of the lack of good healthcare for women and the injustice of women's suffering at the hands of ignorance and misogyny.  In mainstream medicine, it seems like no matter what the ailment, women are only offered 3 options: Hormones, antidepressants, and/or surgery. While these options may be appropriate at times, they are by no means a woman's only options; Nor are they always the best option.

Dr. Holland's personal health challenges led her to seek care options that worked to restore a woman's health using common sense, ancient wisdom, and cutting-edge functional medicine.  In addition to laboratory diagnostics and body work, she teaches women how to chart their menstrual cycles utilizing the Justisse method of fertility awareness.  The information gained by diligent charting of fertile observations and basal body temperature yields extraordinary clinical and diagnostic value.  Dr. Holland relies on this valuable information to care for your unique health challenges.  She has also gathered, the best of the best in complementary practitioners who provide incredible bodywork and nutrition expertise. It is their passion and privilege to bring effective and supportive modes of healing and support to women throughout their lives.  As ardent supporters of reproductive freedom and empowerment of women and girls, WFG practitioners delight in helping women achieve better periods, healthy pregnancies, and access to effective, health-compatible contraception.  Whether you want to become pregnant or to avoid pregnancy, a healthy menstrual cycle is essential to each woman’s overall health.  It is a woman's fifth vital sign!
