How to find a Certified Pediatric Chiropractor in Utah for your baby

For many Utah families, a holistic approach to health and wellness is a priority.  Chiropractic care is an integral piece of the puzzle of health and wellness. Many mothers find that a Webster Certified chiropractor works wonders on sore hips, back, and sacrum.  Many swear that it prepares the maternal body for normal physiological childbirth.  So much so, that we find ourselves being asked by our clients: “How do I choose a Chiropractor for my family?”

Did you know that you can have your infant or small child adjusted as well? Families often tell us that taking their children to regular visits with a professionally credentialed chiropractor can help with breastfeeding latch, ear infections, colic, and many other childhood ailments.  This video will show you just how gentle an experience this is for your tiny baby.

Just like there are different kinds of doctors dedicated to a myriad of specialties, the same is true for chiropractors.

Chiropractors who specialize in infants and children are called Pediatric Chiropractors and undergo an extensive education outside of what is required for their certification from the The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.

Fully credentialed Pediatric Chiropractors go through a rigorous two part program that totals 400 additional hours of classes, research, and a final examination.

This extra step in their education shows that they value your child’s health to the extent that they commit themselves to continuing education.  These chiropractors are on the cutting edge of evidence based practice.  Their aim is to give you piece of mind that they are fully prepared to gently care for your entire family.

Next time you are looking for an excellent chiropractor consider visiting our certified pediatric chiropractic partners.  You can take a look at our partners here.  To find chiropractic care for the whole family or visit the ICPA website to find a provider in your area.

Thank you for visiting my profile. I look forward to knowing you and your growing family. It is my wish that as you think about this time in your life your mind, heart, and memories are filled with the love of your partner, the support of your doula, and the trust earned by your healthcare team. I look forward to hearing about your experiences, fears, and hopes for this birth as we tailor a birth and postpartum plan tailored to your specific needs. With the right education, support, and preparation I know that you can have a beautiful birthing time. If we aren't the perfect fit, I'll provide thoughtful referrals for other doulas. It is my hope that you will find the best doula for you, even if it isn't me. Good luck your your birth journey!

I am a birth doula, childbirth educator, lactation consultant, and military veteran. I worked exclusively with military women from 2007-2011. I have participated in continuing education to support birthing women with previous trauma every year since I started. I now work with a wide variety of women with diverse backgrounds and experiences. I enjoy guiding and empowering pregnant and birthing women throughout their birth journey. I have experience attending women through unmedicated birth, home birth, hospital birth, VBAC, birth at advanced maternal age, using epidural as a tool, special needs birth by cesarean, and vaginal breach birth with multiples. I have worked with couples practicing a wide variety of childbirth education and coping methods such as Hypnobabies, Bradley, HypnoBirthing, Birthing from Within, and Mindful Birthing. I can provide excellent referrals to midwives, OB/GYNs, chiropractors, IBCLCs, and a myriad of other helpful practitioners spanning from Salt Lake City to Logan, Utah. I feel that a good doula will work to maintain a positive working relationship with your provider(s), so as to foster a safe and peaceful birthing environment. I also run a scholarship program for combat military veterans who can demonstrate financial need. I pushed an initiative to have home birth covered by the Veterans Administration, and can help you through the process of having your claim paid. In some circumstances, I am open to bartering/trading for services. If you have any questions, please feel free to give me a call or take a look at my website

I’m looking forward to the tips and tricks I’ll learn at the next mentor meeting, in August, w/ Dr. Nathan. It doesn’t get much better than continuing education with local professionals.

This was very helpful, thank you! I wish I had known about pediatric chiropractors when my kids were babies. I’ll be sure to pass along this info to my clients when need be.

Thank you so much for sharing this. I can personally attest that pediatric chiropractic care can do wonders for your child. I wish I had known about it when I was pregnant. Thanks guys!
