Health &Wellness The Newsletter About Your Health And Caring For Your Body


We are pleased to announce the birth of two new beautiful babies! Physical therapist Jillian Epifania gave birth to a beautiful baby girl Anabelle Grace on February 6, 2017. On March 27, 2017, physical therapist Erica Allocca gave birth to her son Frank Anthony. Jill is profiled this month. Next month’s newsletter will be covering Erica and Baby Frank. How has having a baby girl influenced your life as a PT? I have always loved to learn and try to be the best I could in anything I do, but having Anabelle has given me even more of a reason. I want to be the best example for her, and be someone she looks up to and is proud of. I want to be able to give her everything she would need and a better future. What was it like being 8 months pregnant and working as a PT? I was lucky enough to have an amazing pregnancy and was able to work up until the day before I went into labor. It was difficult at times being on my feet all day, but I didn’t realize how much harder it was working with a big belly bump until I came back from maternity leave and no longer had it! What is your favorite memory with your daughter so far? My favorite memory with my daughter was the first time she rolled over. It was something my husband and I had been working on with her for some time and it was

her first big milestone. I was overwhelmed with how proud I was of her and how strong she had become al-ready. Another favorite memory of mine is the first time Anabelle laughed, be-cause you saw pure happiness and joy. If you could give your daughter one piece of advice, what would it be? It would be to stay true to who she is and find something she is passionate about no matter how long, or how many different turns she needs to take to get there. I feel true happiness comes from within, and with that she could do any-thing. What is your favorite thing to do on the weekends with your daughter? My favorite thing to do on the weekends with Anabelle is spending time with my family. Although most of us work together, seeing the happiness Anabelle brings to my family is a true gift.
