WellnessCare Pediatrics -Because Children are a Gift and a Reward
Midwifery Care focuses on maintaining the health and well-being of women throughout their lifetime. We are excited to now offer the same Model of Care for children from birth to 21 years of age through our WellnessCare Pediatric program.
We welcome Dr. Hennie to our practice!
Dr. Hendrieka Fitzpatrick, M.D. is dedicated to promoting health for children and treating their illnesses because she understands that almost all chronic adult illnesses begin in childhood. She will be assisting her clients to achieve and maintain the highest level of health possible.
Dr. Hennie is a family physician who is board certified in Functional Medicine. Functional Medicine is a medical specialty that works to prevent disease and to find the underlying causes of chronic conditions. When children present with chronic health conditions, Dr. Hennie will help parents find what is missing from or doesn’t belong in their children’s bodies that is preventing optimal health. Dr. Hennie will combine Western Medicine with many holistic modalities to meet her client’s diverse healthcare needs.
A Little About Dr. Hennie & Wellness Care Pediatrics
As the mother of 5 children herself, she understands that parents wish to share the decision-making about their children’s healthcare. Vaccines continue to be a hot debate among parents. We believe that there is no blanket answer for all children. Dr. Hennie will discuss the issues surrounding vaccines with parents and together they will make the right decision for each child.
Teaching children the practice of promoting health as opposed to treating illness will become a lifelong habit they will be unlikely to reject as they grow older. WellnessCare is the pediatric offering by the Midwives of New Jersey. Call for an appointment or plan to attend a Meet and Greet Session to learn more.
