Labor Tips

In my 20+ years of experience, I have found a common denominator to a shorter labor......Chiropractic Care in the 3rd trimester!



Did you know - "300,000 women are giving birth at the same time you are"

Transfer of Care from Birthing Center to Hospital

Transfer of Care

I often get asked what my transfer rate is......my answer, it's not my rate the baby dictates if we transfer or not. " Babies are the Boss!" Babies let us know how they are tolerating labor with intermittent fetal heart monitoring using a hand held doppler. The doppler is used as indicated and/or on a schedule according to how dilated you are and as you progress through your labor. I have a fantastic back-up doctor whom I can call whenever I need, We discuss what needs to happen next and transfers sometime occur. So thankful for Dr. Maynard and the loborists at Tacoma General
