Prenatal

Chiropractic

The foundation for an entire family’s health is built during the prenatal period. Our clinical care and empowering support of moms from conception to the postnatal stage is truly exceptional.

Providing comfort and balance throughout pregnancy.

Prenatal (pregnancy) chiropractors are trained to assess moms’ pelvic, sacral, and soft tissue alignment in order to restore correct movement patterns, and allow mom to experience ease in her pregnancy.

Common reasons a pregnant mom will come to our practice are:

  • She is experiencing discomfort
  • She is concerned about the position of her baby
  • She desires to be proactive and prevent possible discomforts that can arise in pregnancy
  • She understands the benefits of regular chiropractic care for her overall health and wellbeing

Chiropractic is a holistic approach to health, meaning: we are trained to assess the whole person, not just the area of pain or the symptom. This approach leads us to uncovering the underlying cause or dysfunction that is creating the discomfort.

For the majority of our pregnant patients, the underlying dysfunction relates to compensatory movement patterns in their hips, pelvis, and/or their spine. In other words – a subtle misalignment which changes the way their body moves and creates tension within their body.

The purpose of prenatal chiropractic is to support a mother during a time of major physical and physiological change. Our role as your prenatal chiropractor is to guide your body into optimal balance through gentle adjustments and soft tissue work (restoring balance to supporting muscles, ligaments, and fascia).

Our gentle prenatal chiropractic techniques

Our doctors are certified through the ICPA in Webster Technique for pregnancy, as well as Logan Basic Technique, both low-force and gentle approaches for addressing lumbo-pelvic biomechanics in pregnant patients. We use a special table specifically designed for pregnant patients that allows you to lie on your front without any pressure on your belly or baby.

Your first visit to our office will begin with an in-depth conversation with one of our doctors. At the appointment our goal is to understand your personal health history, your current health goals, your pregnancy and birth goals, and your vision for your experience from this point forward in your pregnancy and beyond. We will determine a personalized plan for you, depending on your unique needs.

Your second visit and beyond

Your second visit and beyond will consist of chiropractic adjustments based on your unique needs. Because every person is unique, our care is based on your needs and will always be clearly communicated with you. We want this appointment to be an opportunity for mom to be able to relax and enjoy the benefits of chiropractic care.

What our patients are saying

Efficient and friendly office, I feel great after every adjustment. I saw Dr. Kate during my pregnancy and had a lot of relief from carrying my twins. Now, my twins at 4 months are also patients and love their visits with Dr. Kate!

Heather J.

After the recommendation of a friend, I went to Dr. Kate to help with alignment issues during my pregnancy. My first visit was extremely beneficial - physically, but I also left feeling much more informed about my pregnancy as she is truly an amazing resource for pregnant women. I highly recommend - can’t wait to go back!

Brittany M.

They are the most kindhearted people I have ever met. They have helped my family so much.

Highly recommend this place to families, especially pregnant mamas or with babies.

Dr. Erika

The road to becoming a chiropractor has been a scenic but educational one. After my own incredible experience with chiropractic care, I moved to Dallas in 2013 to attend Parker University and begin the journey to serve others.
 
Upon graduating, I worked in a rehab based clinic located in Irving, TX which prepared me with significant clinical knowledge in addition to expanding my experience into nutrition, physical therapy, and a variety of other palliative modalities. 
 
When the stars aligned for me to move back to Kalamazoo, falling in stride along Dr. Kate and Dr. Steve was an easy transition.  Their passion for serving the community of Kalamazoo is contagious and motivating! 
 
I welcomed my son Max in 2015 and my daughter Amelia in 2016. They motivate me daily to make positive choices and look at the big picture, both at home and at work. 
 
My desire is to educate our patients and create a sense of autonomy and confidence when it comes to their health! I look forward to working with the incredible people of southwest Michigan – hope to see you in the office soon!

Dr. Steve

After graduating from Miami University in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from the school of Kinesiology and Health, and double minor in Business and Coaching, I began a four-year chiropractic program at Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, Missouri outside of St. Louis. In addition to the required chiropractic curriculum, I completed classes and performed research in advanced biomechanics, functional rehabilitation, kinetic chain analysis, and musculoskeletal therapies. This extra-curricular education has given me an edge in treating patients, allowing me to identify dysfunctions often overlooked by other providers.

Upon graduation from Logan College of Chiropractic in 2011, I moved to Indianapolis and started my own practice, PEAK Chiropractic. During my experience of owning and operating PEAK, I gained invaluable experience on how to treat patients of all levels and how to run a successful chiropractic practice. So, when my uncle, Dr. David Antoniotti, called my wife, Dr. Kate Antoniotti, and me with the offer to buy, run, and continue the tradition of Antoniotti Chiropractic in Kalamazoo, saying “yes” was extremely easy.

In March of 2016 Dr. Kate and I welcomed our son, Leo, to the world. And in October of 2018, our daughter, Rose, was born, making us a family of four. 

It is an honor to be continuing my family’s 50-year tradition of chiropractic care in Kalamazoo and I look forward to seeing you in the office!

Dr. Kate

I have always been interested in health, fitness, and human potential. After going through my own personal health struggles in college, I became passionate about holistic and preventative healthcare. This led me to pursue a B.Sc. degree in Exercise Science & Kinesiology- with the ultimate goal of becoming a Chiropractor.

After graduating from Miami University, I moved to St. Louis, Missouri to attend Logan College of Chiropractic, where I earned my D.C. degree. While at Logan, I did additional studies in nutrition, pediatrics, and women’s health. It was during my four years in St. Louis, where I also discovered my love for yoga, and eventually became a yoga teacher (200-RYT).

Dr. Steve and I welcomed our son, Leo, to the world in March 2016. And then in October 2018 we welcomed our daughter, Rose, to the family. Becoming a mom has been a defining moment in my life, both personally and professionally.

With my background in chiropractic, yoga, nutrition, pediatrics and women’s health – I have focused my practice to specifically address the needs of Moms. I deeply care about the health and wellbeing of our children, and I strongly believe that we need healthy Moms in order to have healthy kids.

By directing my focus on pregnancy chiropractic care, post-partum wellness, and pediatric chiropractic – I am hopeful that I am doing my small part in improving the health of our community.
