Chiropractors are experts keeping the spine properly aligned so that clear messages can travel to and from the brain and throughout the body. They provide non-invasive care to determine issues that affect your body’s movement, impact your quality of life, alleviate pain, and support your optimal wellness during fertility, pregnancy, post-partum and beyond. Many families like chiropractic adjustments because they are a completely drug-free path to helping your body heal naturally.
The WOMB provides chiropractic care for families at all ages and stages.
Chiropractic care facilitates the clear transmission of nervous system messages to and from your reproductive system, thereby enhancing fertility and addressing infertility issues. It can also significantly improve the prospects of success in medical procedures such as IVF.
Pregnancy + Birth
Chiropractic care during pregnancy ensures that communication between your brain and body remains unobstructed, free from tension or distortion. This promotes comfort throughout your pregnancy and contributes to a smoother birthing process.
Some of the benefits of care during your pregnancy include:
- Controlling symptoms of nausea
- Alleviating discomfort in the back, pelvis, pubic bone, neck, and joints, which was found beneficial by 84% of women.
- Facilitating a smoother labour experience and potentially reducing labor duration by up to 40%.
- Decreasing the need for pain medication in labour by 50% reduction
- Creating an environment in the uterus that encourages the baby to assume a head-down, optimal position.
In the case of a breech presentation (baby is head up), a chiropractic adjustment known as The Webster’s Technique can help restore balance in your pelvis, reducing stress in your uterus and supporting ligaments. This balanced state has been clinically demonstrated to facilitate the transition of breech babies into a head-down position. The Webster Technique has shown an 82% effectiveness rate in achieving this1.
Infants and Children
When adjusting your newborn, your chiropractor will only use pressure equal to that which you would be comfortable using while pressing on your eye. The child is adjusted by hand and/or an adjustive device while either lying on a pillow or on you! It is simple, safe and effective – and is often done while sleeping – it is that gentle! In infants, the nervous system controls growth and development which is the optimal time to take care of it.
Some children’s conditions that improve with chiropractic care include:
- Bed wetting
- Ear infections
