During your pregnancy is arguably one of the most important times to be under regular chiropractic care!
NOT ONLY ARE YOU GETTING ADJUSTED FOR YOURSELF, BUT YOU'RE GETTING ADJUSTED FOR YOUR BABY!
During your pregnancy, your baby is dependent on the your health to develop properly. Your body goes through a whole array of changes, and its important to have somebody alongside you during this journey to help you adjust to those changes!
CHECK OUT JUST A FEW OF THE MANY AMAZING THINGS CHIROPRACTIC CAN DO FOR YOU AND YOUR BABY DURING PREGNANCY!
BENEFIT #1: As the weight distribution in your body changes as your baby grows, your posture will change, often putting excess stress on your spine. Having a good chiropractor in your corner will ensure that your body goes through these changes smoothly and properly.
BENEFIT #2: If your nervous system isn't in balance and functioning at its best, then this can inhibit proper development of your baby. At Chernichky Family Chiropractic, we will ensure that the function of your nervous system is favorable for growing a human being safely!
BENEFIT #3: Ever heard of or experienced round ligament pain? Yeah, it's not so fun. Round ligament tension comes from an imbalance in your pelvis, causing an uneven pull on the soft tissue supporting your pelvis and uterus- and this includes that round ligament. When a chiropractor keeps your pelvis in alignment throughout the pregnancy, they are able to prevent against any uneven pulling and therefore decreased or non-existent soft tissue tension!
BENEFIT #4: Jumping off of #3, it's pretty important to make sure that your...passageway...is a nice, friendly path for baby to be born, right? When your pelvis is out of alignment, you no longer have a friendly pathway! Pelvic alignment is crucial, and studies have proven that because chiropractic care addresses this, labors are often shorter and require less intervention.
BENEFIT #5: Oh no, baby is in breech position? Pelvic subluxation and soft tissue tightness can cause difficulty to sit happily in your belly the way he or she would otherwise want to. What happens when we address pelvic subluxation and soft tissue tightness allow for ample room to make a happy, head-down baby!
BENEFIT #6: We are confident that YOUR BODY IS DESIGNED TO DO THIS. Dr. Kimmie is not only trained and certified as a prenatal chiropractor, she is also trained as a doula. So you will always be empowered through emotional support and education, so you can have the best pregnancy and birth experience possible.
