Have you ever known a woman to suffer through a difficult pregnancy, or to wonder how she can have a healthy one? What about a woman who wonders how her body can produce the healthiest breast milk? Questioning is smart! Preparation for motherhood begins before pregnancy, by thinking and acting for oneself and one’s baby. Lumbar (low back) pain is one of the most common pregnancy complaints. A woman’s center of gravity shifts forward to the front of the pelvis, and pain often begins.

The hormone relaxin is released during pregnancy to soften pelvic ligaments. These ligaments may overstretch though making walking difficult. Ever heard of a breech baby? Breech is a feet first birth position. It can occur if the uterus has been constrained from misalignments in the mother’s spine. A c-section is often recommended, but it’s risky for both mom and baby, and has long term health consequences.

Low back difficulties, as well as baby positioning can be helped through chiropractic adjustments. During pregnancy? Is that safe? Absolutely. Chiropractic care during pregnancy is gentle, safe, and with invaluable health benefits. What kinds of benefits from chiropractic can be expected for mom to be? It keeps the mom comfortable, decreases discomfort, increases flexibility, improves nutritional flow to the fetus, improves comfort level during delivery, and improves quality of sleep.

It also has the potential to improve the mother and baby lifeline. It improves fetal positioning and helps avoid breech, decreases in-utero constraint, and helps with proper fetal development. 

A mother’s nutrition is one of the most important factors in a baby’s development. For example, consuming seafood during pregnancy is not necessarily advisable, due to possible mercury contamination. 

Folic acid is the nutrient that helps prevent the birth defects cleft palate and spina bifida. This is taken most often in supplemental form, and it’s also known as vitamin B9. This focus on proper nutrition is also needed to produce nutritious breast milk. Breast milk provides immunity against numerous diseases, for a child’s entire lifetime. Breastfeeding is critical during an infant’s earliest stages, when his or her immune system is immature. Once this time period is lost, it cannot be regained.

Breast milk is full of the extremely healthy lauric acid, the only other natural source so full of lauric acid is pure coconut oil. 

Chiropractic has so many benefits during pregnancy, because it allows the mother’s nervous system to function better. Our nerves control the function of the body and exit from our spine. Stress causes the spine to misalign, thereby compressing the nerves. These compressed nerves do not work as well, communicating between mom to be and developing baby becomes more difficult.

This lack of communication is called a subluxation. A subluxation is a condition in which a spinal segment is out of alignment with the adjacent segment. Nerves, which branch off of the spinal cord, no longer properly work. Contact us for a copy of pregnancy and breastfeeding information.

You can help change someone’s life. What can feel better than that? 

“The most important thing she’d learned over the years was that there was no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one.” – Jill Churchill.
