The idea of working with a chiropractor during pregnancy may be new to some, but we believe it is essential during this important time of a woman’s life. Prenatal chiropractic care not only balances the mother’s pelvis reducing pain and improving her overall experience during her pregnancy, it also improves how the mothers body is communicating with the brain which can lead to a quicker and more comfortable childbirth experience.
Our providers gentle approach is safe for both mom and baby. We are Webster Certified practitioners, which means we have completed extensive coursework focused on the care and needs of pregnant women. This patient-specific way of assessing and caring for pregnant women aims to provide a more comfortable pregnancy and reduces the risk of potential intervention during birth by balancing the joints, ligaments, and muscles of the pelvis. If you would like further information, please visit the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association’s website.
Our providers have also completed the Spinning Babies practitioner workshop. This education allows us to assist mothers naturally by means of body balancing activities designed to ease the mother. Our favorite Spinning Babies activities are rebozo sifting (or the jiggle), side-lying release, and the forward-leaning inversion. It has been shown that when applied at the appropriate time during a woman’s pregnancy, these activities may reduce the need for further medical intervention during childbirth.
