Who Are They?
New Beginnings Chiropractic is a chiropractic team right here in Windsor, CO off of Main St. You will find their office very comforting and accepting of new parents, or parents of all walks of life. With the main area for kids to play, so you do not have to find a sitter for your appointment. Everything is kid-friendly in the office. The NBC team specializes in pregnant moms and newborns and is fully certified in the Webster Technique for those expectant moms. This doesn't mean dads and grandparents aren't welcome! They welcome everyone and accept anyone that needs an adjustment.

How It All Started!
This chiropractic team is made up of two doctors. Dr. Tiffany and Dr. Toni. Together they have 14 years of chiropractic experience.
Dr. Tiffany started chiropractic schooling as a result of a sports injury she incurred when she was 13 years old. She had tried everything to get back to playing sports, but nothing seemed to be working. Then she tried a chiropractor and not only did it help her, but it also gave her hope that one day she would be able to play again. From then on, she wanted to be a chiropractor and help others get back to good health. Though she had originally wanted to do sports chiropractic, she changed her mind during schooling when a few of her fellow students went to some break-out sessions that dealt with maternity and babies. Listening to the speaker had her wanting to completely change her direction. She learned that she would have to do extra schooling to be able to work on expectant mothers and newborns. She decided to take on some extra courses at the same time to get all of the certifications needed.
Dr. Toni is also a specialized pediatric and prenatal chiropractor at New Beginnings. Her chiropractic journey started at an office in Manassas, Virginia where she fell in love with chiropractic, movement and helping others live their lives fully! Dr. Toni believes that “movement is medicine. Everyone deserves to be able to have the ability to do the things they love free of pain and discomfort. The goal of chiropractic care is to guide patients on their wellness journey to functioning better in all realms of health. It is not the doctor that heals the patient, but the patient that heals the body.
Why and When Should You See A Chiropractor?
Did you know that seeing a chiropractor as an expectant mother can significantly lower the risk of needing extra help during labor? Yes, it's supposed to help lower the need for intervention. Studies have shown that it also helps to make labor shorter. Seeing a chiropractor during pregnancy can also lead to more comfort as you are holding all that extra weight. At New Beginnings Chiropractic they also provide pregnancy taping and teach you how to also do it at home! The best time to schedule a chiropractic appointment would be as soon as possible before you get into crisis mode.
Birth itself can be a traumatic experience for the body for both mom and baby. They can help with your postpartum recovery. For the newborns, they also go through some stress being born into this world. Having chiropractic care can help with newborn sleep, constipation/gut issues, torticollis, and even latch/breastfeeding help. They tell expectant moms to make sure and book their new babies ahead of time since they like to see them 2 weeks after birth. They do always try to accommodate babies as soon as they are born.
It is important to take note that whomever you book for your pregnancy, that they have been certified in the Webster technique to be able to properly work with you.

Fort Collins Newborn Photographer - Top Tips for A Successful Newborn Photo Shoot
Newborn photography is my passion! However, as much as I love it and we all absolutely adore the results of a successful newborn photography shoot, there is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes to ensure it all goes smoothly. It is a team effort with me and the parents for sure. So, here are my top tips for parents to secure a winning team!
When you are expecting a new bundle of joy and you know that you want to capture those precious newborn moments, make sure to book your photo session as soon as you decide. Those first few weeks of life are when your baby is the most posable and sleepy and I want to make sure there is room in my schedule soon after the due date. If you want more playful and awake photos, let me know as that adjusts the timeline a bit.
Dare to Dream
What would your ideal newborn photos look like? What colors, backdrops, props and outfits do you picture? I love collaborating with parents and making sweet dreams come true. So, don't be afraid to daydream, browse my past sessions and let me know what you are envisioning. But remember that when the day comes, it's all up to what baby wants, which leads me to my next tips.
Be Ready to Feed
A newborn photo session takes anywhere between 1-3 hours, so it is important that you come to the studio prepared to feed your baby at some point. A full baby is a content baby and those lead to the best shots.
Dress for Comfort
Babies love to be warm and snuggled, so I'll have the studio space heated. Have the baby dressed in something easy to take off, such as a zipper sleeper, so we can get your little bundle in a sweet swaddle or cute outfit without too much disruption. And you may want to come in layers to ensure your own comfort while enjoying the session.
Lastly, make sure you have given some time and attention to where in your home you want the end results and what you want to do with your newborn photos. I promise you that the moments captured of your newborn will be ones that you will cherish and want to share with others. So, think ahead and make a plan so your cherished results are valued.
And I'll walk you through every step of the way. Before your session you will get a personalized email from me with what to expect, what to bring and tips and tricks of what to do before you get to the studio to help the session go as smooth as possible. I'm your photographer but also your cheerleader and coach too on this team. Looking forward to teaming up with you soon!

Healthy Sleep Habits From the Start

Newborn Sleep Goals:
Goal #1: Independent Sleep Skills
One of the most crucial elements for teaching children to fall asleep and stay asleep is helping them develop independent sleep skills. It is important that you avoid teaching your baby to rely on a sleep prop. (feeding to sleep is the most common). Keep your baby awake during feeding is key.
Goal #2: Full Feeds
Encouraging full feeds during the day by creating an Eat. Play. Sleep schedule. Newborn babies (up to 3 months) will need to take 4-5 naps a day. These naps should ideally be between 1-3 hours. Most newborns should only be awake for 45-60 minutes before it is time to take another nap.
Goal #3: Consistent Bedtime Routine
Establishing a consistent bedtime routine from day one is a great way to help your baby organize days and nights, which leads to consolidated nighttime sleep more quickly. One of the best things to signal that bedtime is near is a warm bath.
