Prenatal & Postpartum Care 

Pregnancy Chiropractic

During pregnancy a women's body undergoes a great deal of changes to accommodate the growing baby. They may experience aches and pains due to the physical stress, hormonal changes, and postural imbalances going on. Our goal is to help alleviate and even prevent these symptoms associated with pregnancy using a drug-free, safe, and gentle approach! Also, our chiropractic tables are able to accommodate your pregnant, growing bellies!

Ally has been extensively trained in caring for pregnant and postpartum women.  She is one of the few chiropractors in Thunder Bay who is certified in the Webster Technique by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.  The Webster Technique is an analysis of the sacrum and pelvis along with gentle soft tissue work that is specific to pregnant women. The goal is to improve the neuro-biomechanical function and balance of the pelvic bones, muscles, and ligaments surrounding the uterus to reduce any constraint. This protocol creates a comfortable environment and encourages an optimal birth position for baby (head down). Chiropractic also may help women have easier delivery and labor time. Beyond prenatal care, we also offer guidance and resources to help first time mothers navigate pregnancy.
