Care for Moms
For many people, pregnancy offers the perfect opportunity to evaluate one’s health and lifestyle practices. Many of us commit to achieving optimum wellness for ourselves, and with a baby on the way, this commitment instantly doubles. In addition to regular prenatal visits, many moms also turn to chiropractic care for relief.
Prenatal Care with Chiropractic Adjustments
The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) currently recommends that women get chiropractic care throughout pregnancy. They report that it helps establish pelvic balance and provides optimal room for a baby to develop throughout pregnancy.
With a balanced pelvis, babies have the best chance of moving into the correct position for birth, which can reduce the chances of breech and posterior issues during labor.
With optimal baby positioning at the time of birth, it also lowers the chance of a woman experiencing difficult labor and thus, provides a delivery that is safer for both the mother and the baby.
All the Help a New Mom can ask for
Chiropractic care focuses on the health of the nervous system, which controls and manages nearly all bodily functions. It can help holistically address discomforts during pregnancy, strengthening your body for labor and birth, helping you have a gentler postpartum period.
Often after birth, whether vaginally or c-section, the biomechanics of a mother’s pelvis change and bring pain with walking, nursing, and sleeping. At Active Family Chiropractic, we can help you restore pelvic balance through manipulation, exercises, and stretches.
