Progressive moms are choosing wellness chiropractic care before and during pregnancy. The doctor of chiropractic is the only healthcare professional that acknowledges and supports you and your baby’s inborn ability to express your own wellness.
Steps to Wellness: Recognize that healthy pelvic function is vital for your baby’s development. During your child’s first nine months they will undergo tremendous growth and development as they prepare to enter this world. Your baby’s brain and nervous system is the first to develop following conception. The spine and skull, which is the housing that protects this vital master controller, develops later. Even before conception or during pregnancy a woman’s pelvic bones may lose their normal position or ability to move causing interference to their nervous system (pelvic subluxation).
A Wellness Mom: Even more than just good nutrition and less stress the well-being of your spine and nervous system influences the development of the baby. Preconception and prenatal chiropractic care for you can mean less morning sickness, less low back pain and an improved quality labor and delivery but more than that, it supports the integrity of your pelvic function, which includes the uterus, the muscles and ligaments, and the interfacing of the nervous system with fetal development and preparing for a healthy delivery.
Preconception Advice: If you are thinking about becoming pregnant, your doctor of Chiropractic would encourage you to begin the dialogue six months to even a year before you are ready to have a family. Physical, chemical and emotional stressors can affect the quality of your pregnancy and a family wellness Chiropractor is as much an educator as they are a healthcare provider.
