We see many pregnant women and families through our doors.
In pregnancy it is very common to develop back pain or PSD from all of the changes that are happening to your body to make room for your little bundle of joy.
With Chiropractic it is very important to make sure that your body is in the correct position which will make your pregnancy much more comfortable, but as well as this may make your delivery easier. Research has shown that women under regular Chiropractic care during pregnancy have a 25% reduction in labour time on average. There is also a Chiropractic technique called Websters that has a 80% rate of turning breech babies.
Getting your body checked after delivery is also recommended due to the strain it puts on your body, it's always better to make sure things are working well as soon as you can.
Getting your baby checked by a Chiropractor is highly recommended. Alot of people will say to me; why would a baby need to be checked, good question!
Babies are put through alot of strain (as I'm sure your aware of too mums) when they are being born and that's without the addition of instruments like forceps or ventouse. When babies are born they have a large amount of pressure on their skull and spine which can cause subluxations of the spine/cranium.
Getting your baby checked is highly recommended, In our opinion it is one of the best times to get your child checked. In our clinic we are very well known for preventative care and our ethos is preventing future problems.
