Dr. Tammy Watkins is a wife and mom to four amazing kids. After completing her undergraduate degree at the University of Northern Iowa, she attended Northwestern Chiropractic College in Bloomington, Minnesota. She had the honor of studying under the pediatric and prenatal specialist in her doctorate program, as well as completing three additional years of coursework in prenatal and pediatric care. After completing her doctorate in 2005, Dr. Tammy moved back to her hometown of Johnston to start practicing.
Dr. Tammy’s passion is to serve pregnant women and to equip them with the most genuine, healthy, and complete care and has had the honor of attending multiple births (medicated and non-medicated) as a labor support coach (doula) in Des Moines and the surrounding areas.
She feels that as a chiropractor who specializes in prenatal care and labor support, women have available to them the best and most complete pregnancy support and birth coaching for the healthiest outcome for them and their baby. Her goal is dispel the myth that pregnancy equals discomfort, birth equals fear, and nursing equals pain or struggles.
