On today’s episode Dr. Elana interviews Dr. Stephanie Libs, a pediatric and prenatal chiropractor with a specialty working with infants with tongue, lip and or buccal ties. Dr. Steph gives you a sneak peek at what you can expect at a visit with a chiropractor and also teaches us what craniosacral therapy is, which is a helpful treatment for infants with ties.  By the end of this interview you will feel empowered with resources and not alone in this journey. Tongue ties have become a very common diagnosis and sadly can interfere with successful breastfeeding. There is hope and we are here to help empower you mamas! 

Topics Discussed:

  • The benefits of chiropractic and cranial care for infants
  • What is craniosacral therapy 
  • What does a visit look like for a baby getting therapy
  • What do chiropractors do differently when a baby has a lip/tongue tie
  • How often would a mom expect to take their baby in for craniosacral therapy 
  • When is a good time for therapy to begin
  • Theories to prevent ties
  • How does someone find the right chiropractor

Dr. Steph is a pediatric and prenatal chiropractor and founded the Cafe of Life in order to bring community and connection to local families with a love for natural health care.

She’s extremely passionate about chiropractic care for the whole family and has extensive training in pregnancy, fertility, postpartum, infants and breastfeeding, and is currently training to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. She holds advanced certifications in pediatrics and pregnancy through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. With the various types of conditions and ages of our patients she has a deep desire to deliver masterful adjusting skills and has a broad range of adjusting abilities, from the most gentle techniques to the traditional heavier adjusting styles. She and her husband Dean have two kiddos, Aubree born in 2016 and Roland born in 2018. As a mother she’s able to connect with many mothers who have gone through tough times, from miscarriage, to birth plans gone awry, post partum depression, breastfeeding challenges and so much more. The Cafe of Life is much more than your average chiropractic office. It’s a place to connect, bond, and grow… together.

If chiropractic were a love language, it would be hers. She has served on several chiropractic mission trips around the world, she maintains membership with organizations such as the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, International Federation of Chiropractors & Organizations and supports organizations like the Spinal Research Foundation, Life Chiropractic College West and the New Zealand College of Chiropractic Research Facility. If you’re not careful she will nerd-out on all things chiropractic, babies and birth! She also serves on the Board of Trustees of Nizhoni Institute of Midwifery and is the President of a local non-profit birth center within Tourmaline Birth and Wellness Collective, a new birthing center in Pacific Beach.

On her off times you can catch her trekking around Pacific Beach with the kiddos, playing at the parks and beaches and drinking coconut milk lattes. Her parents are Australian and British and you’ll often see them around the office, especially during Christmas when her dad (who is a professional Santa) visits for photos!
