Pregnancy

More and more new parents are tuning into 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 honour 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. 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 insensitivities often accompany a newborn’s introduction to the world. The administration of drugs and anesthesia can have unfortunate effects too.

Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy helps maintain balance, alignment and flexibility. Many report less morning sickness. When the baby is comfortable, he or she can assume the optimal birthing position. 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 check-up for your newborn as soon as possible. You can relax knowing we use a light touch to make our adjustments safe, comfortable and effective. Mothers who get adjusted seem 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.

With pregnancy come hormonal changes, a shift in body weight and a laxity of connective tissue. New stresses are experienced by the lower back and pelvis. Many women reported that their pregnancies were easier and their delivery times shorter when they received chiropractic care.

Acupuncture treatment is also a natural and safe choice for expecting mothers. Acupuncture treatments can help with the common aches & pains that come with pregnancy as well as morning sickness, sleep disturbances and anxiety. Acupuncture is a great stress reliever and relaxer; many pregnant clients also seek acupuncture to help induce labour. It is a safe, all natural alternative to prescription medications and other pharmaceuticals you may be apprehensive about taking while pregnant.
