Dr. Capetanakis believes that being present during birth is a privilege. As a doctor of osteopathic medicine, he understands that birth is a natural process and wants to work with you to ensure that you have the birthing experience you desire.

The goal of osteopathic treatment is to assist this natural process, maximizing the body’s ability to adjust and to compensate for the changes as efficiently as possible in support of mother and baby with a minimum of pain and discomfort.
