Hey Mama to be,
In nine short months, every single day brings with it new developments as two little cells become 3 trillion. Your baby's brain & nervous system form, heartbeat begins & the senses awaken, all before the very first breath! Pregnancy & birth are incredible & at times a challenging experience for both mum & baby. As you make important choices you are creating the ideal environment for you & your growing baby.
So much discomfort, imbalance and challenges are "normalised" in pregnancy and yes growing a human isn't the easiest task, but your body is beautifully designed to grow, carry + birth your baby naturally. We are here to support you to move through all stages of your pregnancy + postpartum experience with ease.
Our nervous system is the first thing to develop in utero, it is our master control system the coordinator of our whole body, your nervous system orchestrates our ability to breathe, digest and how we interpret and interact with the world around us.
This is why so many of our mamas choose regular chiropractic care through their pre-conception phase through out pregnancy to make sure mama and baby are functioning at their best from day 1.
Each phase of pregnancy brings along its own season, decisions, changes and challenges. We are passionate about supporting you to make the best decisions for you and your family while making sure you and baby are functioning and feeling your best.
Chiropractic care works directly with your nervous system to make sure your and baby are regulating, growing and adapting with ease. Changes in weight bearing as the baby grows puts increased strain and tension on the mother’s lower back and pelvis. By ensuring the pelvis and spine are stable yet flexible the baby is able to grow and develop in a comfortable environment.
Visiting a chiropractor through out your pregnancy has shown
By encouraging proper pelvis and spinal function with chiropractic care, research has shown a 24% reduction in labour time for first-time mothers, and 39% reduction for experienced mothers.
Another study found that patients who incorporated chiropractic adjustments during their pregnancy had a 50% decrease in the need for pain-relief during delivery.
Chiropractic care has been shown to ease symptoms in up to 85% of pregnant women, decreasing the need for pain-relief medication that may not be ideal for the baby’s health.
A recent study published in 2016 stated that females under chiropractic care had increased function, control and relaxation of their pelvic floor muscles. This is essential when it comes to a confident and comfortable delivery.
We are passionate about supporting your pregnancy journey + help you prepare for your ideal birth.
