Shape Your Goals. Prepare for Birth.
Whole-Body Birth Preparation For The Pregnancy Experience You Deserve
The Well Mama Prenatal Consult is for you if you are currently pregnant or plan to become pregnant. During the prenatal consult we will discuss important health components during pregnancy including pelvis and spine alignment, nutrition, and movement. We will start shaping your goals and begin preparing your plan for birth.
Exercise & Movement
In our society, women are treated as fragile and delicate when it comes to pregnancy. The list of what you can’t or shouldn’t do seems overwhelming.
However, just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean you can’t remain active and physically ready for childbirth. Giving birth requires strength, endurance, and flexibility. Can we expect our bodies to perform how we need them to if it hasn’t been trained appropriately?
Labor is unpredictable and can last hours, or even days. You wouldn’t work out for hours or days straight without training.
The same is true with birth. It will be a much easier process and recovery if your muscles are prepared for what is to come.
Let’s create a customized exercise and movement plan, just for you…
And get prepared for the biggest “athletic event” of your life.
Good nutrition during pregnancy has been linked to good fetal brain development, a healthy birth weight, and it reduces the risk of many birth defects.
A balanced diet will also reduce the risks of anemia, and other unpleasant pregnancy symptoms such as fatigue and morning sickness. Good nutrition can also help balance mood swings and it may improve labor and delivery as well.
We can help you understand the impact nutrition has on your mind and body during pregnancy, and help you identify foods that will fuel your body and that of your baby.
Pelvic & Spine Alignment
During pregnancy your body experiences rapid change and growth. As you gain weight, more stress and pressure is placed upon your joints, and your posture shifts. Chiropractic is a natural way to get relief from sciatica, low back, pubic bone, tailbone, neck, and joint pain, and headache relief, without the use of drugs that may be harmful to take during pregnancy.
Adjustments of the sacroiliac joints will help decrease pain and pressure, relax the pelvic floor muscles, and increase the opening of the birth canal. This places your baby in a proper “head down” position.
This stimulates the birth process (proper engagement into the pelvis and stimulation of the cervix) and there will be less need for interventions and reduce time spent in labor.

Emotional Well-Being & Mindset
Just as it is important to fuel your body with the proper nutrition, you must feed your mind with good thoughts.
Thoughts influence the outcomes of events in our daily lives, both positively and negatively. Small changes to your mindset can make a huge difference in your life. Positive thinking reduces stress, gives you better health outcomes, decreases depression, increases lifespan, and overall makes you a happier person.
Let’s work together to shift your mindset so both you and baby experience the best version you.
