Dr. Erica’s motherhood journey has been as varied as it has been abundant.
In the final year of her graduate studies, Dr. Erica and her husband welcomed the birth of their first son, and the method of delivery changed from a gentle home birth, to a traumatic cesarean delivery in the hospital.. After graduation, Dr. Erica and her family moved back to San Antonio where she and her family welcomed their first vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) baby in the comfort of their home and with the support of a midwife and doula.
Since Dr. Erica opened the doors of Empowered Chiropractic + Massage in 2017 to serve the community, she has gone on to welcome her and her husband's 3rd and 4th children in their home. The family is currently expecting their 5th baby and with that news decided it was time to expand the office family as well. After an amazing 5 years of loving and supporting Texas families, Dr. Erica welcomed Dr. Rachel Taylor into the Empowered family.
