CHIROPRACTIC FOR PREGNANT MOMS
Chiropractic care prior to conception promotes a more regular menstrual cycle and optimal uterine function. It prepares the body to be strong, supple, balanced and able to carry an unborn child through pregnancy. Dr. Pia’s goal is to help moms have better births with less aches and pains as their body changes to accommodate a growing baby.
We use Activator Method Technique, a High Tech/Low Force approach. This Technique is gentle, highly effective and safe for Pregnant Moms. A healthy pregnancy means an easier labor and delivery, and a better transition for the baby into life.

A Modern Mom’s Story
My name is Casey and I am the proud mom of two kids. A boy who is a toddler and a little baby girl called Izzy, who is just 4 weeks old. This is the story so far of how my husband and I created our family.
We wanted to be able use the resources of our modern technological world, however we also wanted to make decisions that were rooted in what is natural and made good sense to us. We wanted balance. For my first pregnancy, I was so focused on becoming pregnant that I literally forgot about the decisions I would have to make regarding the pregnancy, labor, and delivery. Once I was pregnant I was excited, however I was also a little fearful some of time. I had lots of questions and was searching for answers that my doctor wasn’t providing. My pregnancy became an anxious struggle as I continued to spend time asking questions, doing research and still not getting sufficient answers. I was fighting for the birth that I wanted with doctors who appeared to be pushing their own agendas. It was frustrating.
When I decided to get pregnant for the second time, I knew I wanted to do things differently. My new OBGYN recommended that I should consider working with Dr. Pia Martin. Soon after that conversation I began working with Dr. Pia. Together we developed a plan that was unique to me that would allow my mind and body to be prepared for a healthy pregnancy. We worked together for my entire pregnancy. She was the second most important partner (after my husband!) in the process of Building a Healthy Human. Dr. Pia supported and encouraged me and I was able to have the balanced and beautiful pregnancy I wanted. I was more confident and less anxious and worried, which led to the labor and delivery I desired.
I have grown a lot as a person while working with Dr. Pia, which has helped not only with my pregnancy but it also helped me become a better mother to my first child, and a better person in general. THANK YOU DR. PIA! I only wish that I had a copy of this book (and Dr. Pia!) prior to my first pregnancy. This will be the book that I will give to any of my friends that are thinking about getting pregnant or have just become pregnant so they can educate themselves and have the pregnancy and birth that they want the first time around.
