Kate Antoniotti is a self-admitted nerd who has always had a deep curiosity about the world around her. Early on in life, she thought this would lead her into a career in traditional medical. As she grew and learned more about the human body, however, she realized that her passions lay more in the direction of nutrition, exercise science, alternative medicine, and chiropractic. She subsequently earned her undergraduate degree in Exercise Science and Kinesiology at Miami University and received her Doctor of Chiropractic from Logan University. Today Kate and her husband, Steve, co-own Antoniotti Chiropractic and live in Kalamazoo with their two young children, Leo and Rose.

Kate is a Woman’s Health Chiropractor who specializes in Prenatal Chiropractic. Her passion for women’s health and wellness only intensified when she and Steve were preparing to start their family. From the very start, she threw herself into preparing to become pregnant. She studied preconception health in an attempt to optimize her health, and therefore that of her children-to-be. Once she became pregnant she continued her deep-dive into learning everything she could about prenatal health and wellness, not only for her own children but for benefit of her clients as well.

Kate strongly believes that the world needs healthy mothers in order to have healthy children and communities. This conviction that has her waking up every morning eager to support the women in her community through their journey from preconception through pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum season. As part of her efforts tohelp the women in her practice, Kate created MamaCore as a way to help moms heal their postpartum bodies. MamaCore is a movement class focused on giving women the tools to heal Diastasis Recti (DRA) and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction. It is so much more than just an exercise class, however. It’s a place for women to connect during a season of life that can often feel lonely and isolating.

Kate is committed to learning everything she can to help pregnant women experience healthy, pain-free, and energized pregnancies. She notes that when she entered her own postpartum season, she experienced a diastasis and post-partum thyroiditis. These required her to dive into rehabilitation protocols for healing her core and functional medicine approaches for healing her thyroid. It was an incredibly challenging time for her, but one that she looks back uponwith immense gratitude. She now has the privilege of using her own experiences to aid other women in their journeys toward healing.

With a thriving business to run and two small children to care for, Kate admittedly doesn’t get much free time. When she does have a free moment, however, she loves to read, take walks with her family and listen to the occasional podcast. Unsurprisingly, Kate is an exercise enthusiast who likes to alternate between Yoga, Orange Theory and LBS Kalamazoo classes. What she really likes to do is sleep, but with an infant at home, that’s a past-time she currently doesn’t get to indulge in much. If she ever does get a full day to spend exactly as she pleases, you can expect her to sleep a full twelve hours, get a massage, do some yoga, spent some time outside with her family and enjoy some good food and wine.
