Restore your body and health with patient-driven pelvic and orthopedic physical therapy

PREGNANCY AND CHILDBIRTH CAN BE A MAGICAL TIME

A time that ushers in the best moments… 

and if we’re being totally honest, the most challenging moments.

Rarely discussed is the aftermath of stretching our bodies to an extreme capacity, during pregnancy and birth. Where we experience those silent symptoms, that inwardly feel painfully loud! The embarrassing changes such as: leaking, painful intercourse, loss of/painful range of motion.

You may be surprised to learn how common Pelvic Floor symptoms are:

77% of postpartum women have low back pain that interferes with daily tasks

Vaginal deliveries are the number one risk for pelvic organ prolapse

Up to 65% of women experience sexual dysfunction 18 months postpartum, regardless of the method of delivery

Thankfully

Therapeutic physical therapy celebrates huge successes in getting women, such as yourself, back into the activities you love, pain-free (& leak-free too). 

At VitaNewLife, we help women get off the roller coaster of prenatal & postpartum symptoms. Here you’ll receive the validation and care required to treat the underlying cause. You will never be given a one-size fits all approach to your unique struggle..

A Mother of 4 who Understands

Commited to bringing back your Smile

Hi, I’m Sarah:

You’re in a safe place where you’ll be met with compassion. 

My ‘hands on’ approach enables me to get to ‘the why’ systems aren’t optimally functioning. Your therapeutic and holistic treatments will build back your strength and function.  

I’m so motivated by seeing the huge smiles of my clients as they come in and share their wins: running without leaking, pain-free intimacy and resuming everyday-activities they once took for granted. 

As a mother of four, physical therapist, childbirth educator and doula, I understand the importance of a positive pregnancy, birth experience and postpartum care. 

I want you to be able to experience a healthy parenthood where you’re unburdened by pain or lack of motion.

Happy Stories

We used Sarah at Vita New Life for both our 3rd and later and 4th baby. She gave great suggestions on easing back/leg pain during pregnancy, offered successful options to get baby best positioned for birth, and provided calm, caring, evidenced-based support during labor and delivery. A doula during childbirth is one of the best gifts you can give yourself and your baby, and Sarah is just top notch!
Dr. Sarah Knight has been a godsend as part of my care team for guiding me back toward structural balance and strength. It's worth so much to have genuine people like Dr. Sarah who really want to see you succeed. -Cindy
Dr. Sarah helped me with a wide range of issues, including all kinds of aches and pains related to pregnancy, constipation, a slow-healing laceration from birth, rebuilding core strength, and a custom "return to running" program. Sarah also helped me prepare for my VBAC, and was attentive to my immediate postpartum issues, which was so helpful. I feel so fortunate to have found someone as well-trained, experienced, and empowering as Sarah. -Ruth
I am grateful for the difference you’ve made in my life! I have never met someone so kind, caring and skilled at what they do. My life is literally better everyday because of you! Thank You! -Kim
