PRENATAL + POSTPARTUM CARE 


At Cleveland Chiropractic and Integrative Health Center, we specialize in the journey through motherhood. We offer a multi-modal approach to treating common conditions that arise during pregnancy and the postpartum period.  We offer a variety of workshops that are constantly expanding and are the home of BIRTHFIT Cleveland.
