Tammy Watkins

Prenatal chiropractor and doula by trade, wife and mama by grace. My handsome husband, Zac, and I love to play with our two kiddos (4 and 1), boat, spend time with friends, find new 'healthy' recipes and meals to prepare, and watch Cornhusker football. Coined as a 'birth junky', I love to talk all things pregnancy and birth and pursue my passion of empowering, educating and equipping pregnant mamas and their families.
