5 Essentials for Expectant Moms


Build Your Birthing Team
Would you run a marathon without training? No. Giving birth is a physically demanding and extremely rewarding experience. It is important to build a team around you to help you prepare your body and mind. Feeling strong and able are essential for a positive pregnancy.

Stay Active
Many moms will stop activity once they learn they are expecting for fear of causing harm. While some activities may need to be altered, activity is a key component to controlling pregnancy symptoms and having a successful delivery. Lack of activity can create unnecessary complications. Keeping the body balanced and moving with ease is essential.


Quiet the Chaos
Our society tends to dwell on the negative and give more attention to people with problems. So it is no surprise that your friends, family and doctors might tell you all about the problems they have seen, the complications someone had or the bad thing that happened to them. Stress and negativity affect a developing baby just the way a bad diet would. Encouragement is essential.


Make Your Hubby Hands On
Dads want to help but they often don’t know how. It is important that they understand they have a big role. They are responsible for being your cheerleader and keeping chaos away from you. They want to help so make sure you tell them what you need, how you feel, and what they can do. They are excellent teammates but bad mind readers. A partner who participates in the process is essential.


Accept the Change
Your body will look different. Your energy level might not get you through your to do list. You might be out of your comfort zone. It’s normal and okay, so be okay with it. Embrace the changes and challenges. Adjust your priority list. The world won’t end if the laundry waits while you take a much needed nap. This will be good preparation for motherhood when your wants and needs will change. Loving yourself is essential.

Dr. Brie is exceptional and really fills the need for chiropractic services for pregnant woman and infants. I have taken my infant son to her, as well as had adjustments myself while pregnant, and feel safe knowing that we are receiving tailored chiropractic care for our needs.

My husband got hurt his back and work and seeing Dr. Brie was the ONLY treatment that provided him relief. After his success I decided to take my athletic son to see Dr. Brie. Since seeing him he has improved greatly and is feeling fantastic. Naturally I decided it was my turn to give treatment I try. I saw Dr. Chad who provided me so much relief to my aching back muscles from every day use and lifting a little one constantly. It was easy to get an appointment and Heather at the front desk is friendly and easy to schedule with. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Brie and Dr. Chad whether it be for an injury or just wellness care. I promise you will not be disappointed!!!!

I love Live Well! I had a headache everyday before I met Dr. Brie! I love their new location it’s homey yet professional, a nice environment. Not that I have children but, it is nice they have a child’s room for them to play. Dr. Brie truly cares about her patients and you’ll see her behind the counter scheduling and taking payments, it’s a true team effort there! I have never had any issues and really feel like more than “just a patient”. I recommend to any and everyone!

I started seeing Dr. Brie for preventive chiropractic care several years ago. I met her at my office when she came in as part of a staff wellness day and she was kind enough to gently point out how much I needed her help (aka, how crooked and tight I was through my neck and spine). Though skeptical, I committed to a full evaluation, and I have been going regularly ever since. Dr. Brie has helped me tremendously with neck pain after a minor car accident, as well as my chronic low back pain. I can't thank her enough! Dr. Brie and Dr. Chad are both wonderful people and practitioners. They are always smiling, professional, and happy to help. I highly recommend them both and will continue to trust them with my care!

Dr. Brie came highly recommended by my prenatal providers at the beginning of my pregnancy and I saw her every week from 10 weeks on. This was my second pregnancy and without a doubt, the chiropractic care made a huge difference this time around. I was more comfortable, slept better, and overall felt healthier. I would also bring my 2 year old to all my appointments and I love how family friendly Dr. Brie and the whole staff is. They do such an amazing job at taking care of the whole family! When my daughter was born, she had a pretty rough colicky period. I started taking her for biweekly adjustments because she was literally a different baby after seeing Dr. Brie. Even other family members noticed the difference in her demeanor. I can't say enough about this practice. It's been a great experience and I love having chiro as apart of my regular health care!

A great friend referred us to Dr. Chad. I was skeptical of taking my 15 year old son to a Chiropractor for knee issues, however he was facing sitting out the main season of Lacrosse (after being sidelined for the fall season) which would have been devastating to him. Dr. Chad does active release therapy and within a couple of sessions the pain was gone and he was running again!! This after 3 years of physical therapy, topical steroid treatments, rest periods, and a lot of missed opportunities. We've referred other young athletes to him and he has "fixed" them as well! I have become an unofficial spokesperson for Live Well - I can't recommend them enough!!!!
