Chiropractic is safe and effective for babies and children. Birth is a traumatic event and every newborn should be checked by a chiropractor. Left unchecked, your child may develop problems later down the road. The nervous system controls everything in your body and removing the interference between the body and the brain will allow your child to develop optimally and live a happier and healthier.
Adjustments during pregnancy may help with common symptoms, such as heartburn, nausea and morning sickness. Adjustments specifically to the pelvis can calm the muscles and allow baby to move into a more comfortable position.
Women under chiropractic care often report having faster, easier labors with less medical intervention.
"Chiropractic care in pregnancy is vital to the normal physiological function of both the mother and baby in pregnancy and birth."- Jeanne Ohm, DC
"The choices you make before conception and during each stage of your pregnancy will be a factor in your baby's wellness. During your pregnancy, the lack of interference to the baby's development gives them an opportunity for the inborn intelligence to develop their physical, emotional and spiritual nature."
There are numerous case studies reporting successful pregnancies after consistent chiropractic visits. The lumbar and sacral regions house the parts of the nervous system that directly connect to the reproductive organs. When a subluxation is present, these nerves become irritated and their connecting organs do not function optimally. Combined with nutrition, exercise and lifestyle changes, I will help you give your body its best chance to become pregnant.
