Pregnancy

PRENATAL

At CLC we understand that the health of a pregnant woman is vitally important because the care we offer affects both mom and baby. Proper nervous system and spinal function are crucial to the development of a baby and essential to the well-being and comfort of the mom. Pregnancy causes your body to experience physical and hormonal changes. The effects of chiropractic care during pregnancy extend way beyond treating pain. You may benefit from reduced low back pain, shorter labor times, optimal position for your child, and improved postpartum healing.

By ensuring that the pelvis and spine are in proper alignment and motion, chiropractic care helps to make sure that the developing baby has plenty of room to grow within the womb. By maintaining this proper alignment and movement throughout pregnancy, chiropractic care can also improve the ability of the expecting mother to have a safe birth process. That is something that is extremely vital to the health of both a mom and her baby.

Dr. Shayla is certified in the Webster Technique. This chiropractic technique helps to correct mom’s sacrum, which in turn balances pelvic muscles and ligaments and removes torsion from the mom’s uterus. This allows baby more room to get into the best possible position for birth.

POSTNATAL

The postpartum period brings many drastic changes biomechanically, emotionally, and spiritually. New moms are considered to be in the postpartum healing phase for up to a year. It is important to ensure your neuro-spinal system is open and connected as hormones balance out and soft tissue heals. We understand the support and recovery that you need on this new journey, and we are here for you! Supportive chiropractic care after pregnancy has been shown to help with: easier breastfeeding, increased ability to sleep, less discomfort and more mobility, easier healing process, and improved mindset.
