Loving Your Pregnancy and Delivery!

 

Pregnancy is a beautiful, exciting time that can go well if you have the right support group. Great pregnancy and delivery stories do exist, and these women have great support practitioners to help them have a healthy and happy experience.

 

Nausea/Heartburn: Early in the pregnancy your body has an increased need for protein to build the placenta and other tissue. Eat small meals of protein every 2 hours (nut butters, beans,dairy, eggs, meats).

Back pain, leg pain: Chiropractic care during pregnancy is safe, gentle and effective. Studies show a 91% improvement in sacroilitis (lower back/buttock pain) during pregnancy with chiropractic care.

Mid back and body aches:  Pregnancy massages and adjustments decrease muscle and spine tension for a rapidly changing body

Breech, sideways baby: Pelvis misalignment without pain and intrauterine constraint can resolve with the Webster technique that chiropractors use. There is an 84% success rate of baby turning head down once the pelvis is balanced.

Labor and delivery: Doulas and midwives as part of your labor team help that guide you with different movements and positions in a positive atmosphere. Studies on chiropractic care during pregnancy resulted in less pain and faster deliveries, by 3-5 hours!
