During my 3rd pregnancy, I visited my chiropractor for adjustments. I was experiencing low back pain and some tightness in my hips and inner thighs. After the adjustments, I always felt better. Mentally, I liked the thought that keeping my pelvis even and balanced would make the space larger and allow the baby to exit more easily. I’m proud to report that my baby arrived in record time – my labour and birth were problem-free. It was also great to have my chiropractor evaluate my baby shortly after her birth.
Our daughter had been experiencing a lot of fussiness and crying fits at night. At 2 months of age it seemed to be getting worse and we were at our wits end. We had heard that chiropractic care could help so we decided to give it a try. Incredible changes happened! Our daughter improved after the first two sessions; she is so content, doesn’t overextend her neck, cries way less, nurses better, happier and more easy going. It is so soft, gentle and noninvasive, she breathes deeply during the sessions and likes it. Chiropractic is amazing for children, especially babies.
I had a breech positioned baby and discovered that chiropractic care could help encourage the baby to turn, naturally. Following a few sessions of gentle chiropractic adjustments, our baby turned to the proper head down position and were able to avoid a C-Section!
As an advocate for chiropractic care, which has always been an integral part of my life for preventative maintenance, pre/postnatal care is a positive continuation of this based on specialized individual treatments for the many changes associated with pregnancy. In addition, my baby also receives monthly check-ups to monitor her development.
If only I had started chiropractic care earlier! I was nervous and didn’t receive treatment until 34 weeks into my pregnancy. I found the gentle care to relieve so much pressure. I had been practicing yoga but I needed something extra to relieve the pain. My chiropractor also provided treatment the day after the birth, for the whole family. The entire chiropractic experience was more than I could have ever expected!
At 36 weeks of pregnancy and the baby in the breech position, I sought chiropractic care to correct any pelvic constraints prior to a scheduled external version. I felt a significant opening of my pelvis as a result of 4 chiropractic sessions using the Webster Technique and the external version was a success! Following the version, the chiropractic helped the baby settle well into the pelvis and I was able to have a wonderful home birth.
When I was 34 weeks pregnant, I twisted my pelvic bone. I had trouble walking and worried that this condition would affect my wish for giving birth naturally. I went into chiropractic care which always gave me relief. My son was born 2.5 weeks early and I gave birth naturally without any pain medication. It took a few more weeks of my chiropractor’s care to walk normally and without pain. Chiropractic care was very helpful for my shoulders which hurt from holding my baby while nursing, as well. It was also good that my chiropractor checked on my recovery from birth on a regular basis.
During my 2nd pregnancy, I saw my chiropractor for adjustments. I found the care was very helpful in alleviating a lot of back pain and discomfort in my coccyx I was experiencing due to the weight gain of the pregnancy.
