The Support That You Need
Pregnancy is a time full of changes. Whether you are enjoying every minute, struggling with health issues, or anywhere in between, we’re here to support you through.
Chiropractic is a powerful and effective way to care for your body naturally throughout all the weekly changes.
No matter what your birth plan is, you and your baby can surely benefit from regular chiropractic care and you will love the balance and relaxation that comes with a healthy spine and nervous system. Your muscles, organs (including your uterus and cervix), and every cell in the body are connected to your brain through your nerves. Guess what protects your nerves? That’s right, your spine! And your spine changes a TON during the course of 40 weeks!
No matter if you are trying to get pregnant, you just peed on a stick, or you’re about to pop, chiropractic care is great at any stage throughout the process. We always say, the sooner the better, but it’s never too late!
All The Reasons Why
3 Benefits of
Pregnancy Chiropractic Care
Your hips, spine, and pelvis go through immense changes over the 40-ish weeks of your pregnancy.
The chiropractic adjustment to the pelvis releases tension to the ligaments and uterus so the baby can move freely and assume the best possible position for birth.
Who can be happy when in pain? Getting your body out of pain and thriving is just one more step to happiness.
Chiropractic care not only gets you feeling better but it gets you functioning better and back to your life!
Did you know that your immune system and your nervous system are related? And your digestive system is controlled by your nerves?
Chiropractic adjustments boost the immune system and regulate the digestive system.

Experience and Certification
Your pregnancy is a sacred time and we hold a deep respect for the miracle happening within you.
All of our doctors are trained and certified in Webster Perinatal care and Advanced Perinatal care by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. This technique is a specific chiropractic analysis of the sacrum, pelvis, and spine, with various adjustments, soft tissue releases, and corrective techniques. According to the ICPA “The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/ SI joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is facilitated.”
Subluxations (misalignments and nerve dysfunction) of the sacrum, pelvis, and spine may contribute to difficult labor for the birthing person. The uterus, pelvic muscles, and position of the baby are all related to the function of the nervous system. Correction of spinal subluxations allows for increased nerve function which enhances functions of the muscles and organs involved in pregnancy and birth.
I’ve been seeing Dr. Steph since my first pregnancy and now visit weekly with my husband and two children. She’s been amazing at every stage- pregnancy, postpartum & beyond- adjusting both our children within days of birth. Not only is Dr. Steph a gifted and attentive chiropractor, but the environment she’s created at Cafe of Life is also something so unique and special to our family. I feel blessed to be a part of the community!!”-Kristen M.
If you are looking for excellent chiropractic care for you or any one of your families, Cafe of Life is the place to go. I first met Dr. Steph Libs when I was pregnant with my second child. I was past 40 weeks and trying to get labor started. Dr. Libs adjusted me and the baby was out before I could go to the next scheduled appointment. Now myself and my two kids and my husband see her on a regular basis for care. She offers more than just chiropractic care as her practice is based on natural health care for your whole family. There is also a great mom support group on facebook for all the moms in her practice. Overall the practice is SO welcoming. Plenty of room for kids and everyone always has a smile on their face! Do not hesitate to see Dr. Steph she is the best out there.-Kelly W.
Dr. Steph is amazing! I started going to her at 37 weeks pregnant because my daughter was transverse throughout the pregnancy and then turned breach. I had attempted multiple other things to get her to move head down without success. Within 4 appointments with my daughter turned head down and I was able to have a natural delivery. Not only that, but I slept significantly better and had less body aches and pains. If you're looking for a great chiropractor in a warm and comfortable environment, Dr. Steph is for you.-Jessica P.
I would highly recommend Dr. Stephanie to any expecting mother. She always makes me feel comfortable during any type of adjustment, which is difficult to do at almost 7 months pregnant. I will continue to see her throughout my pregnancy in hopes of a smooth delivery! Thank you Dr. Stephanie!-Brenda A.
