Pregnancy & Pre-conception
Bringing another person into this world? What an amazing time! There are so many choices to review and consider during this time period. Our doctors have put together the information you need to have a healthy, vitalistic, holistic pregnancy.
Have you recently got engaged or are looking to have a child 3 months to 1 year down the road? Would you like that child to be healthy? Great! Now is the time to start pre-planning your family’s health.
We now know that epigenetically, what we do prior to getting pregnant and during pregnancy plays a huge role of our children’s health. This is not only for the health of your child when born, but can dictate their health for the rest of their life.
A developing baby needs very specific things to be healthier than average. We have what you need to know to give your growing baby everything it needs. Dr. Cynowa is Webster certified through the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) which is a technique to help pregnant mothers be at their best for labor and delivery.
Lifestyle chiropractic care during pregnancy has allowed many mothers around the world to have the great pregnancy they deserve. Our patients regularly report high functioning during pregnancy, shorter labor times, less medication, high labor satisfaction rates and increased probability of a natural healthy birth.
Call our office at 704-899-5000 to schedule an appointment and discuss how to have an amazing healthy pregnancy.
Did you know that over 90% of neural development happens the 1st year of life? That neural development is controlled solely by the nervous system. Dr. Gutman MD., found interference to the 80% of the infants he examined shortly after birth. Any interference to the nervous system affects the normal communication necessary for a developing baby.
Our doctors have a special focus on infants and children while developing. Parents regularly report less ear infections, colds, allergies, antibiotics when their children are under chiropractic care.
Dr. Cynowa has undergone over 220 hours of extensive training through the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) and has a passion for helping kiddos achieve their best!
Please call our office at 704-899-5000 if you have any questions about something your child is experiencing or the high level of safety associated with pediatric chiropractic care.
Lifestyle Family Wellness
Chiropractic care is for the entire family. The lifestyles we live contribute to physical, chemical and emotional stress. This puts our nervous system and immune system under stress which leads to ill health. If you are looking for a game plan to maintain your health or regain it, our office will lead you there.
Dr. Cynowa practices Torque Release Technique which is one of the newest techniques in Chiropractic Care helping his patients reach optimal levels of health physically, chemically and emotionally.
Alongside adjusting the nervous system with Chiropractic Care, Dr. Cynowa is the only C.C.W.P. (Certified Chiropractic Wellness Practitioner) in both North and South Carolina. This certification is the gold standard in understanding the major requirements the body needs to maintain an incredibly healthy lifestyle.
To take his patients to an even higher level Dr. Cynowa is also a C.C.E.P. (Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner). Life not only takes a toll on our spine but our joints like knees, shoulders, elbows and wrists as well. Dr. Cynowa is well qualified to help you manage and improve many of these areas in your life as well.
Call 704-899-5000 to schedule your first appointment today. We will thoroughly go through your lifestyle, nervous system and health to help you regain the quality of life you deserve.

Chloe Davis (Bradley Method Insructor)
facebook/twitter/blog links: www.facebook.com/ninemonthbloom
Since 2007, Chloe has been attending in and out of hospital births and believes with the proper support and preparation women can have a safe and satisfying birth no matter where they choose to deliver. She has over four years of personal breastfeeding experience and has been active in attending La Leche League meetings, an international breastfeeding support network, since her children were born. After putting her trust in doulas to help guide her through her own birth experiences, she became deeply driven to become a doula herself. It is her sincere desire to offer the information, education and support women need to make their own empowered choices in birth and parenting. Chloe feels honored to be serving women during one of life's most sacred rights of passage.

Areas/hospitals served: The Greater Charlotte Area
Short bio: I'm a trained birth doula who found myself immersed in birth community during my first pregnancy and birth in 2012 - and jumped in with both feet. We welcomed our second child in 2014 and both births were such a positive experience that I want that for all parents - supported, in control, and informed. I don't believe in the rather common “It’s just one day, you can get through it” attitude – every parent I've met has strong feelings around their birth experience and the memories last a lifetime. I feel that education and one-on-one support are absolutely the best thing parents need during their transition into parenthood.

Patti Crawford (Lamaze)
Bio: I have an amazingly supportive husband and together we have 5 awesome children as well as 3 beautiful, amazing grandchildren (with hope for more to come). I have been supporting women and families during pregnancy, birth and early parenting for more than 27 years. My first birth experience was so empowering that I soon became addicted to all things pertaining to birth. I began attending the births of family and friends at every opportunity. I have many years' experience as a health educator in public health, providing in-home pregnancy and parenting education as well as labor support. I have been a doula since before I knew what a doula was! I believe with all of my heart that this is God’s calling for my life!
I believe that birth is a sacred event and that a woman has an inner wisdom that guides her through her birth. I passionately believe in a woman’s innate, God given ability to birth her baby! I believe a woman has the right as well as the responsibility to make healthy, informed choices for herself; her pregnancy and her baby, to birth where and how she chooses and to have people around her that fully support these choices. I strongly believe in the importance of wondrous, joyful birth memories! I believe that a positive birth experience will empower new parents in all areas of their lives!

Postpartum doula info:
When I gave birth to my first 3 children my husband and mother both worked full time and they were unable to provide as much help as I would have liked. My mother was able to come and stay with me for a few days after my 4th child was born and I was able to spend memorable time getting to know my newborn as well as introducing her to her big sister and brothers in a calm, relaxing way without worrying about what I was going to feed them for lunch or when I would have time to do the laundry. I felt like a queen! Twenty six years later, I still have such positive memories of that time. I also spent many years providing prenatal and postpartum support and education on a full time basis in a public health setting. I have had much training in all things postpartum including breastfeeding, postpartum emotions, newborn care and early parenting. I am a true believer in the concept of mothering the mother.
Parenting is an amazing and yes, let's be honest, some days exhausting journey! In days gone by, new parents were surrounded by family, friends and neighbors helping out in numerous ways. These days, with some families living quite a distance from each other and everyone having such busy lives, new parents are often left on their own. Although this is a wonderful time for family bonding and getting to know your new baby, an extra pair of hands can be invaluable! Not having to worry about household tasks and having someone knowledgeable and supportive available when needed will allow new parents to concentrate on the more important tasks like getting to know their newborns, as well as getting much needed rest!

Name: Karen Gartner
I have been involved in birth work since 1998, which began with the study of breastfeeding physiology and support. In 2000, I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Nursing and worked 3 years as a NICU nurse, before starting my own family.
My husband and I moved to North Carolina in 2005, with our daughter, looking for a peaceful place to raise our family. Since then, 3 more children have joined our family! I have personally had a hospital induced birth and two homebirths. After the birth of my oldest daughter, I began to study birth-related topics in-depth, with a focus on normal, physiological birth while also studying evidence-based research concerning interventions and alternatives. I became a La Leche League Leader and volunteered for 3 years, serving mothers in my community. My doula work naturally followed, beginning in 2006 and grew through word of mouth by satisfied clients!
In 2016 I began formal training as a childbirth educator. I am constantly looking for ways to expand my knowledge to better serve my clients and students. In the fall of 2018 I will attend a Spinning Babies Workshop and a Rebozo Workshop.
I use an interactive approach in teaching. I use a wide array of tools and hands-on techniques with my clients to provide physical, emotional and evidence-based informational support throughout pregnancy, labor, birth and the early postpartum period. Through interaction and open discussion with my clients and students, my doula services and classes are tailored to fit each individual birthing mother's needs as well as those of her family.
The classes I teach are not only extremely informative and in-depth, they are also fun! They include hands-on labor rehearsal practice, relaxation practice as well as interactive and meaningful games that help students apply what they've learned.
I serve families within an hour of Shelby, North Carolina including (but not limited to): Gastonia, Forest City, Charlotte, and Spartanburg and Greenville in South Carolina. I will serve families outside of this area in special situations. I attend hospital births within an hour of Shelby as well as birthing centers in Statesville, Charlotte, Spartanburg and Greenville. I will also attend home births within an hour of Shelby NC.

Short bio: When I was pregnant with my first child, I knew I wanted a natural childbirth. It was the most beautiful, life altering experience I could have imagined. I was hooked! Those endorphins did their job; I absolutely LOVED the whole process of labor and birth! I loved it so much I have done it four more times since then! My Bradley teacher (who was also my labor doula) became my mentor. I began my journey as a doula and childbirth educator in the fall of 2006. Since then I have been blessed to witness many couples become families and families grow larger. I am always honored to be asked to be a part of the birth team, whether as a childbirth educator or as a doula. When I teach my childbirth class, my goal is to empower families to make choices in their pregnancy and birth that represent what they want, need, and believe for their birth. Of course that is going to look very different for everyone. As a doula I strive to be a source of information during the pregnancy and physical, mental, and emotional support during the labor and birth.
