The pregnancy and postpartum period is a time of great joy, but is also filled with questions. Where can I find OBs in Fargo? What do doulas do? Who can I talk to about how I’m feeling during postpartum? Are there any postpartum resources available? Motherhood is full of choices, and it can be overwhelming to find all the pregnancy resources in Fargo in one place.
Our hope is that this Pregnancy & Postpartum Guide will help you find answers to some of those questions. We hope it will help guide you to the right decisions for you and your baby. Below you will find a comprehensive list of OBs, midwives, doulas and other the pregnancy resources in Fargo and the surrounding area. Plus, many postpartum resources as well.

The most important time for a baby to be adjusted is in-utero. You will give your child the best start possible. As every Chiropractic Adjustment releases the interference between the brain and body for you, it does the same for your unborn baby. Of course, it makes sure your alignment is balanced and ready for preparing for your natural birth. Dr. Tiffany is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, Holistic Pediatric Alliance, Epic Pediatrics, NDCA, WCA, ICA and she contributes her time and resources to many local community organizations via speaking and writing.
