My work with pregnancy and newborns has been a passion and purpose over a 20-year journey. Learning about the history of birth, the lack of scientific evidence directing modern birth practices, and the cascade of modern interventions and related poor birth statistics fueled my desire to find and experience pregnancy and birth a different way.

Discovering how chiropractic and traditional midwifery care support and optimize this process gave me a purpose and mission I felt compelled to share with my community.

Through study and clinical experience, I've seen that our modern birth culture tends to create unnecessary challenges and trauma.

As a chiropractor and midwife my goal is to lessen this negative impact, support mothers physically, emotionally, and informationally, help them achieve positive birth experiences and when needed, help them and their babies heal and recover so a full expression of life is experienced.

This work comes with many joys as well as challenges. I strive to bring as much commitment, skill, patience and grace as I walk along those through one of the greatest transitions in life!

When I am not helping mothers and babies I am spending time with my two sons on our small homestead farm in Port Orchard, finding adventures around the world, or fulfilling my constant desire to learn.

Dr. Jennifer Young, DC

Hi! My name is Dr. Jennifer Young. My passion for healthcare started at a young age and matured to be a desire to meet people when they are hurting and help them become the best version of themselves that they can be.

While I have a particular interest in pediatrics and prenatal chiropractic, I have worked extensively with athletes, elderly patients, and those with chronic and acute injuries. While I was a student at Palmer, I became involved in the pediatrics club and served as the president for my last two years. I have a particular interest in prenatal and pediatric chiropractic and studied with different doctors with pediatric diplomats.

I feel that my most important job as a doctor is to listen to and address your concerns. I am committed to your health and desire to work with you toward reaching your personal health goals.

For over ten years, I ran my practice, Young Family Chiropractic, and have recently partnered with my friend and colleague, Dr. Joella Folk, to begin Generation Chiropractic.

On a personal level, I am an avid outdoor enthusiast, and I love to travel. I spend as much of my free time as possible camping, fishing, hiking, and just playing outside!

Family is especially important to me, so I enjoy hanging out with my husband, CJ, or any one of our four children, Jack, Henry, Calvin, and JoJo.

  • I began my education at Washington State University
  • I then attended Palmer College of Chiropractic-West in San Jose, California, for my doctorate. I believe that I received a spectacular education there that has prepared me to be a skilled, intuitive physician.
  • I also attended pediatric training in various seminars, lectures, and conferences. I studied many different techniques, including Thompson drop and Sacro-occipital techniques.
  • While I use an Activator occasionally, I do most of my adjusting manually and consider myself to be a diversified doctor.
