What a special time in your lives, where you are thinking of welcoming a little one into your family. Did you know that many couples come to us before they are thinking about having a baby? Chiropractic is one of the many healthy lifestyle habits that can assist couples to strengthen their reproductive integrity naturally.
Lots of people choose to come and see a chiropractor for wellness reasons and want to be as healthy as they can be before welcoming a baby into the dynamics.
In saying this, pregnancy can bring about many changes in the body and often is the reason why some women seek a chiropractor. For example many woman come in with:
- Back discomfort
- Changes in sleep
- Walking changes
- Swelling/fluid retention
- Leg cramps
- Bladder and bowel changes
- Tingling in arms and legs
- and more…
Another reason why some people come to a chiropractor is for fertility reasons. A friend’s parents were trying to get pregnant for many years and had lost hope. They had heard about a chiropractor within their community and decided to give it a go. They both went along to the chiropractor and within a month they were pregnant! I’m not saying that this could happen with everybody but once our bodies are able to heal and function as they could, incredible things can happen!
These are just signals from the body that there is something happening from a deeper level – A nervous system level. It is fantastic to get checked by a chiropractor to see how we could care for you and your growing family.
What we usually find are Vertebral subluxations. By adjusting vertebral subluxations, chiropractic care helps to relieve stress and tension from the body allowing your body to heal and function as it was designed to.
When adjusting throughout pregnancy we work with balancing the nerve system to allow for optimal growth and development of your little one.
I have completed extra studies to further specialise in Children, Babies and Pregnancy Chiropractic care. It is a passion of mine to help support families through this very special time. We have a variety of gentle and specific techniques that we use during pregnancy and for the babies development.
The adjustments also help with:
- The ease of delivery with shorter labour times
- Improved sleep
- Reduced nausea
- Increased energy levels
- Fewer interventions at birth
- Pelvic floor support
- Optimal fetal position
- There is also research out there which shows when your spine and pelvis are correctly aligned it may contribute to a more straightforward labour with less discomfort and trauma for mother and child.
We look forward to welcoming you into the Studio and chatting further on this!
