Pregnant MamasConception to 42+ weeks
You should be celebrated and taken care of.
In just 9 months, a woman carries and provides for the creation of new life. WOW! The most complex system on this planet is formed without help from the outside world. It happens effortlessly with support and connection from the womb of a mother. Consistently changing from the moment of conception, a woman’s body can be supported by gentle chiropractic adjustments to better integrate the experience of this magnificent process.
Whether you are trying to conceive or already pregnant, having a neuro-spinal system that is clear and open creates the optimal environment for a comfortable and healthy pregnancy.
We understand that the health of a pregnant woman is vitally important because the care we offer affects both mom and child. Proper nervous system and spinal function is crucial to the development of your baby and essential to the well-being and comfort of mom. The effects of chiropractic care during pregnancy are far-reaching and extend way beyond treating pain.
By ensuring that the pelvis and spine are in proper alignment and motion, chiropractic care helps to ensure that the developing baby has plenty of room to grow within the womb. By maintaining this proper alignment and motion throughout pregnancy, chiropractic care can also improve the ability of the expecting mother to have a safe and natural birth process – which is something that is extremely vital to the health of both mom and baby.
The modern birth process is often one of the most traumatic events that a person will endure in their life. Unfortunately today, many health care providers choose to look at pregnancy as a “medical condition” rather than the incredibly safe and natural process that it is. A woman’s body is designed perfectly for the birth process, and difficulties typically only arise if mom is functioning at less than 100%.
Not all chiropractors practice the same, and may have different specialities. However, if you have a chiropractor with Webster certification it signals TRUST. This will assure you that your chiropractor has been properly trained in the technique by the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) to help serve families.
What is the Webster Technique?
As chiropractors our job is to detect the presence of a spinal/pelvic subluxations or areas of dysfunction. These subluxations can interrupt or impede the flow of the information from the brain out to the body or vice versa, leading to a less than optimal state of being. This impaired movement can also cause dysfunction throughout the entire kinetic chain. The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and Diversified chiropractic adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/SI joint dysfunction. In doing so, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is facilitated. (1)
A misalignment of the sacrum may lead or contribute to a harder labor for mama due to inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby not being in optimal position. Corrections of misalignments, specifically of the sacrum, may have a positive effect on the above causes of dystocia (difficult labor).
