Healthy Moms help make Healthy Babies
Chiropractic care during pregnancy helps your body cope with the increased amount of stress on your spine and body. Maintaining or improving the function of your spine with Chiropractic care before, during and after pregnancy, helps you and your child to be as healthy as possible. The mother’s internal environment is also the baby’s environment. Factors which contribute to and optimize mom’s wellness also benefit the child inside.
During the later stages of pregnancy the weight of the child becomes a major force to bear and hormonal changes begin to relax the supporting tissues of the spine. Maintaining the stability of your pelvis and balance of pelvic muscles with Chiropractic care can make for an easier, less painful and less traumatic birth for both mother and child.
After baby is born, the hormone Relaxin is still present for awhile – providing the perfect window of opportunity to set your pelvic bones back into balance & ensure proper alignment. Even once the Relaxin is no longer present, chiropractic adjustments help ensure proper healing, function and restoration.
