Show Notes

In this week’s Episode of Mum’s The Word we have a hugely inspiring lady and also a mentor for me in both the Birth and Chiropractic word, Dr. Jeanne Ohm. Jeanne opens up and shares her wisdom but also gives her views on why birth can go wrong for women but also how it can go so so right too.



Listen in and you’ll learn why Chiropractic plays an essential role in a woman’s preparation for birth and how it can lead to shorter labor times. Amazing right!? Hence why I’m so passionate about this. Also Jeanne shares from some of the the latest research Chiropractic research currently being conducted and how Chiropractic significantly effects the outcomes of VBAC births for women under chiropractic care differently from those that are not under care during their pregnancy.

Dr. Ohm’s professional mission is to provide Doctors of Chiropractic with the skills and motivation to care for more pregnant mothers and children. She is committed to educating other practitioners with the information to support natural birthing in their practices. It is her understanding that birth trauma is a current chiropractic concern, and therefore it has become her goal to eliminate its damaging effects on the newborn. She intends to accomplish this by:


  • adequately training DC’s in specific chiropractic techniques and care for pregnancy, birth & infancy for the promotion of natural birthing.


  • forming national alliances for chiropractors with like-minded birth practitioners and attendants


  • empowering mothers to make informed choices in pregnancy and birth


  • offering patient educational tools which address this issue



Dr. Ohm is married to Dr. Thomas Ohm, Chiropractor. They have six children who have all received chiropractic care since conception. They were all born at home and are living the chiropractic family wellness lifestyle.
