Dr. Nikki Cottis
My name is Dr. Nikki Cottis and I am your BIRTHFIT Gulf Shores regional director.
I am a graduate of the Pennsylvania State University at University park, with a Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology (2007) and my doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University in Marietta, Ga (2011). I have traveled to the Sichuan province of China to practice chiropractic, and have my own practice in Gulf Shores since 2015.
I have been married to my husband Jonathan for 3 years, and we have one daughter named Hazel Jane. My daughter was born via emergency C-section in December 2018. My birth story is a long and interesting one that I look forward to sharing with you in our postpartum journey together!
My interest in birth started while researching my own options for birth in our particular area. I have certifications through the ICEA in childbirth education, Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) for core and pelvic health, and Webster technique through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).
