Prenatal/Postpartum Chiropractic

Chiropractic care specializing in natural pain relief due to the rigors of pregnancy and childbirth

Chiropractic care provides an easier labor and delivery as well as natural pain relief due to the rigors of pregnancy and childbirth. Dr. Brayton has a strong clinical background with Pediatric and Maternity Chiropractic, continuous referrals from Pediatricians and Ob-Gyns, and specific custom equipment for expectant mothers to make them comfortable. In addition, her specialized training in the Webster technique has helped numerous women avoid C-sections by gently assisting a breech baby in turning head down prior to labor and delivery.

Benefits of prenatal chiropractic care:

  • Maintain a healthier pregnancy
  • Ease common symptoms like nausea, ankle swelling and round ligament pain
  • Less pelvic pain (pubic symphysis dysfunction) and strengthens the pelvic floor
  • Relief of lower back pain, sciatica or tailbone pain
  • Encourages optimal fetal position (Webster Technique)
  • Supports natural labor and delivery 

Benefits of postpartum chiropractic care:

  • Improve recovery after delivery 
  • Less back, hip and pelvic pain
  • Comfort while breastfeeding
  • Wrist and elbow pain (carpal tunnel syndrome)
  • Greater production of breastmilk
  • Less incidence of postpartum depression

maternity | nice things people say about us

I would like to share my experience with my last pregnancy. I went to Dr. Brayton for Webster Technique treatment at around 32 weeks. I owe my
super-quick delivery to
Dr. Brayton’s regular adjustments.
I had just discovered that the baby was still breech at that point and had hoped to avoid a repeat Cesaerean section (my first daughter was breech). After 5+ weeks of regular treatments (3x per week), my daughter finally turned at 38 weeks. I was able to cancel my scheduled C-section and give birth to my second daughter vaginally and without the use of medication or other interventions. I arrived at the hospital 5 cm dilated at 1:45pm and gave birth to Elisa at 3:19pm! I highly recommend this treatment, especially if you are hoping for a natural, vaginal delivery.

Drs Brayton and Alvarez were highly recommended to me when I started experiencing lower back pain in my 2nd trimester – and continuing adjustments with them through the very end of my pregnancy was an absolute game changer!! Aside from normal pressure, aches and small pains – I was able to really enjoy my pregnancy pain free, and not have the acute lower, SI joint pain that I was experiencing prior to seeking their expertise. Their practice is gentle and understanding. Never rushed and they truly place your health and wellness first. Admittedly, I only went to Hoboken Family Chiropractic + Wellness for what I thought was preventing any back, neck and shoulder pain related to my first pregnancy … but when I learned how the adjustments were actually helpful in promoting a healthy, safe and efficient delivery – I’m CONVINCED they were the very reason why my son was in optimal position for birth, that my labor was mere hours and his delivery was faster than I could have imagined. Now, I’m a busy mama who still seeks adjustments for the strains that come with a life of chasing after young children, working from home scrunched over a computer, etc. . My holistic quality of life has improved with their treatment plans that truly look at my health as whole. I sleep better, feel better, move easier and feel healthier. Worth every penny!

I started seeing Dr. Brayton when I was 4 months pregnant because I hoped to alleviate (pre-pregnancy) back pain and prevent any additional back pain during pregnancy. I am pleased to say I had zero back pain during my pregnancy with thanks to Dr. Brayton. She was amazing helping me through my pregnancy and making sure my body was ready for delivery! I continue to see her regularly to stay on top of any back and wrist pain from carrying an infant.

Mama + Baby Optimal Nutritional Support |

Customized support packets for healthy preconception through breastfeeding!

The Mama + Baby Optimal Nutritional Support is designed to meet the higher nutritional needs of women who are consciously preparing for pregnancy, are pregnant, or are breastfeeding. This formula not only addresses these additional needs in a comprehensive way, but it also reflects recent research by including key nutrients in forms that optimize absorption while being gentle to the digestive tract.

The packets include:

Omega DHA, Vitamin D, and Choline – Adequate intakes during pregnancy are critically important for healthy fetal development, particularly for fetal brain and retina; neurocognitive and neuromotor functions; and neuronal growth.

Folate – Adequate folate nutrition before and during pregnancy supports healthy development of the brain and spinal column. 5-MTHF is the most biologically active form of folate, and data suggest that 5-MTHF supplementation increases plasma folate more effectively than folic acid.

B Vitamins – These critical vitamins work together to support healthy energy production; healthy cell growth and cell division; and neurologic, cardiovascular, immune, dermatological, and emotional health.

Bioavailable, yet Gentle Minerals – Ferrochel® iron, DimaCal® calcium, and trace minerals provided as Albion® TRAACS® amino acid chelates promote optimal utilization while being gentle to the gastrointestinal tract.

Antioxidants and Other Nutrients – Generous levels of nutrients that provide antioxidant activity and immune support address the increased physiological stress of pregnancy and promote healthy tissue maintenance and growth.
