More and more new patients are trusting the innate wisdom of the body. They're looking for a professional who can partner with them, supply information, coach, encourage and use natural approaches that honor mother and baby. We'd like to be that resource for you.
Chiropractic care prior to conception promotes a more regular menstrual cycle and optimal uterine function. It prepares the body to be strong, supple and as balanced as possible to carry the pregnancy. Many couples who thought they were infertile have been helped by restoring proper nerve supply to reproductive organs.
Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy helps maintain balance, alignment and flexibility. Many report less morning sickness. When the baby is comfortable, it can assume the optimal birthing position.
Labor and Birth
Mothers who get adjusted seems to require less high-tech intervention. Most report shorter, less traumatic births. With proper nerve supply, well-timed contractions help move the baby more easily through the birth canal.
Even natural births can stress a baby's spine. Breastfeeding problems can arise if the baby is unable to comfortably turn its head. Schedule a chiropractic checkup for your newborn as soon as possible. You can relax, knowing we use a light touch to make our adjustments safe, comfortable and effective.
Pregnancy is natural. Why is chiropractic necessary?
Being born is a natural process. It's what we've done to the birth process that has become increasingly suspect. In hospitals, a severe drop in temperature, loud noises, suction extraction and other insensitives often accompany a newborn's introduction to the world. The administration of drugs and anesthesia can have unfortunate effects, too.
Will my medical doctor approve?
You don't need anyone's approval to seek a chiropractic opinion about health issues affecting you or your child. Consulting another health care expert is always helpful in the decision-making process. We work closely with other practitioners who keep up with the latest research and understand the value of this natural, drug-free approach to better health.
Will adjustments hurt my baby?
Of course not. An infant's spine rarely has the long-standing muscle tightness seen in adults. So the energy needed to adjust a child's spine is considerably less than what's needed to adjust you. This is a common concern among parents who mistakenly think their child will receive the same kind of adjustments they receive.
