Labor and Birth
Q. Will my baby be hurt during the adjustment?
A: Absolutely not. We would never do anything to jeopardize you or your baby. Adjustments are modified for the baby's tiny, fragile spine.
Q. Why do I need Chiropractic adjustments if pregnancy is natural?
A: Pregnancy and birth is natural. It's what happens during and after that we want to address; drugs and epidurals have a serious affect on the baby, then comes the loud noises and cold temperatures that make up the baby's introduction to the world.
Q. Will my medical doctor approve?
A: You don't need anyone's permission to receive a Chiropractic assessment regarding your baby's health. It is wise to seek the opinion of another health care professional. Medical doctors who keep up with the developing pediatric Chiropractic research are starting to see the value of the natural, drug-free approach to health.
Q. What does my spinal health have to do with my baby?
A. An optimal nervous system is ideal in all stages of life, but especially during pregnancy when you can help your growing baby develop and reach their potential. Adjustments are modified for the mother's condition, size and weight. Many mother's seek Chiropractics during this time to help control hormonal changes and weight gain, report shorter and easier births.
