Pregnant belly with baby shoesIf you’ve been trying to conceive but have been unable to, we want to help you at Connected Chiropractic. Our goal is to help couples who are trying to get pregnant, make sure that their bodies are as healthy as possible. During pregnancy, chiropractic care is highly beneficial. It can help moms-to-be experience a happier, healthier pregnancy.

Prepare to conceive a radiantly healthy baby.

Everyone wants to promise pregnancy as a goal, but I believe that’s the wrong approach. My goal is to increase and improve your health, so not only do you have a healthier pregnancy, you also get a healthier baby!

You feel completely helpless. You’re on the schedule of the fertility medications, dealing with side effects and the emotions right along with it, or you’re at a standstill, stopped due to the huge financial toll the fertility journey is.

Will we ever have a baby of our own?

With every month that passes, every negative pregnancy test, every procedure, every positive pregnancy test that didn’t hold…you start to wear down.

You want to be “you” again.

Your husband is supportive, but you can tell emotionally, physically and financially it’s a draining journey to be on.

You hold on to hope, because your desire for a baby is so great, you’ll do whatever it takes. Little do you know, the true concern with all the drugs is greater than you know..for you and baby.

At one point, you convince yourself that maybe it’s time to look for different options, never knowing that simple choice will make all the difference in the world…

You start thinking differently and due to that, you ask different questions.

You start to have more hope, the journey seems to brighten, your load lessens.

You spend time learning yourself, growing and changing and you’re in awe of what your body is actually capable of

No drugs, no procedures, but using physiology, logic and the connection that was so distant with your spouse/significant other – your entire world has shifted.

You knew life could be better, you knew it was supposed to be like this!

Are you ready to see that world?

You are not alone in this. Come join a practice with other families on the same journey as you. Dr. Michelle is trained in the Schaefer Protocol, helping hundreds of families to reach their goals.

Of course, conception is only the beginning of the story.

Promoting a Healthy Pregnancy

Did you know that the birth process, even if no interventions are involved, is one of the most traumatic events that a person will experience? Many health care providers regard pregnancy as a medical condition rather than the natural process that it is. A woman’s body is uniquely designed for the birth process. Problems only arise typically if the pregnant woman’s body is functioning at less than 100 percent.

Chiropractic also can decrease low back pain, reduce nausea and shorten labor time.


Do people tend to come in as couples or start with one or the other partner, and then they both come to the office?

It can be either, but it is equally important for both partners to be involved, as the male contribution to pregnancy and fertility is a lot more than most people are led to believe.

How does chiropractic help?

Chiropractic works by looking at what is interfering with normal healthy physiology. When we remove that interference (Subluxation) the body is allowed to do what it knows to do and function and health are restored. Trying to grow your family can be stressful, as is walking through the pain of miscarriage. When people get adjusted, we know that their stress response drops dramatically. When their stress response goes down, that’s the best time to be procreative and allow Innate Intelligence to get to work.

Is prenatal chiropractic safe?

Yes! Your growing baby is well protected within your body. Many pregnant moms not only report loving their adjustments, but love the opportunity to lay face down and relax with our unique pregnancy pillows.

How often should I come in for care?

When you first meet with Dr. Michelle, you will have a chance to discuss your health goals and history. Based on that info and the info we collect during your exam, Dr. Michelle will make a customized care plan for you. Many enjoy chiropractic care from approximately 1 year preconception to 3-6 months post partum, and most of those stay because of the many benefits they have experienced with chiropractic care.

What are the benefits of postpartum chiropractic?

After a woman has given birth, hormones are still rampant in the body. There also are many new physiologic changes that are happening. These include breastfeeding, sleepless nights, and getting your body back again, depending on what type of birth you had.
Chiropractic can help moms recover so they can get back to being 100 percent themselves. As a result, they can be the best mom possible.

How is the Webster Technique beneficial?

The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/ SI joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is facilitated.

Sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother (i.e., dystocia), caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal-presentation. Correction of sacral subluxation may have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia.

How does a baby benefit from the mom being adjusted?

Some studies show that as the mom has less stress in her body, physically, emotionally, chemically, we know that the baby has less stress. Typically those babies have fewer issues postpartum, such as less colic. They sleep, eat and poop as they’re supposed to. Generally, these babies are much more content as well. Healthy happy babies are the norm and not the exception. Who doesn’t want that??
