Preconception Care

Healthy parents, healthy baby

The preconception phase is essential. We’re here to support and prepare you for motherhood and fatherhood.

"Such a blessing and great resource for me during my preconception and
pregnancy journey."

"I have never been to a provider who wants to dig deep to find the root of my issues."

Hopeful parents, we see you.
You are in the right place.

When it comes to your future child’s health, you need a trusted ally. That is us, your holistic health care team that has over a decade of experience. We’re here to teach you how to prepare your mind, body, and soul for pregnancy. To give you the best possible chance of creating a healthy life.

If you are looking for a clear and actionable plan to optimize fertility and improve your future baby’s health, you are in the right place. Your child’s health starts with you. 

You may not be ready for a baby right now, or even in the next year, and that’s okay. The choices you and your partner make today will impact the quality of your eggs, sperm, and the intrauterine environment for your future baby to grow in.

Trusted Allies in Health

We offer a collaborative, multi-professional approach during your preconception journey. Our team of doctors and functional medicine practitioners have over two decades of combined clinical experience working with parents like you. 

Chiropractic adjustments remove the interference blocking the nerve communication to your reproductive organs and other organs. This gives your body and brain the ability to support your immune system and help regulate your hormones, resulting in a more optimal balanced body and brain.

We have devoted hours of continuing education in preconception care to help give you the best care and outcome possible during your time in our office.

We base our practice on the current data and literature surrounding pregnancy, birth, and pediatrics, and serve as the primary research center for pregnancy and pediatric chiropractic in both the US and internationally.
