Pregnancy

Being pregnant is supposed to one of the most beautiful times of your life. It is a miracle to have another human being developing inside of you! Many years ago, most people wouldn’t have seen a connection as to why a pregnant woman would visit a chiropractor. An optimally working nervous system will help both mother and child during all stages of pregnancy. More and more women are learning to trust their bodies and are looking for professionals who will support them during this period. A chiropractor can work with you to supply information, encourage you and use natural approaches that will benefit both mother and baby. Dr. Ali loves the beauty of pregnant women and watching them learn to trust themselves and have confidence in their natural ability as a mother.

Chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy are safe, comfortable and effective.

Pre-Conception

Chiropractic care can help prior to conception by promoting a more regular menstrual cycle and optimal uterine function. It prepares the body to be strong, supple and as balanced as possible to carry the pregnancy. Many couples having trouble conceiving have been helped by restoring proper nerve supply to reproductive organs.

Pregnancy

Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy helps maintain balance, alignment and flexibility. With proper nerve function women get relief from common pregnancy ailments like sciatica, rib pain, headaches, and nausea. When the growing baby is comfortable it can assume the optimal birthing position potentially resulting in an easier labour.

Labour and Birth

Mothers who get adjusted during pregnancy may require less high-tech intervention during labour. Many actually report shorter, less, traumatic births. With a properly working nervous system, contractions may be more regular and well timed, helping to move the baby more easily through the birth canal.

Post Delivery

The most natural births can still be a stress to a newborn baby’s spine. Breastfeeding problems can arise if the baby is unable to comfortably turn its head. Have a chiropractic checkup for your newborn as soon as possible to give them a healthy start in life.

 

Webster Technique

The Webster technique is a specific method of evaluation and treatment used by Doctors of Chiropractic certified in the technique for pregnant women. This safe and effective technique can be used when a baby is in the breech position in an effort to help the baby move to the optimal position for birth.

The Webster technique may allow for an easier and safer labour and delivery. There are many cases published in chiropractic literature that demonstrate the efficacy of the Webster technique.
