Dr. Baker has taken additional Post-Graduate training in Pediatrics and Pregnancy from the International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association. She is also Webster Technique Certified. Webster Technique helps balance the pelvis in pregnant women that gives their babies more room to move into the proper position in utero. It does not "turn breech babies" because we are not working on the baby, we are working on the mother. By balancing the pelvis and the ligaments around the uterus, it helps the mom be more comfortable during her pregnancy and helps give the baby room to find the best position for birth. Dr. Baker works with kids and babies every day in her practice and is always excited to learn more! She is a 3rd generation Chiropractor, including her grandfather Dr. George Crump, her mother Dr. Susan G. Crump-Baker, her father Dr. Dennis Baker, her uncle Dr. Mark Baker, her brother Dr. Steve Baker, and cousin Dr. Jason Baker.
