Essential Pelvic Floor Therapy for Expectant and New Mothers01/04/2024
It’s crucial to prioritize self-care during your pregnancy and postpartum journey, and one avenue that Origins Birth and Wellness recommends for its myriad of benefits is chiropractic care. Origins has a Webster certified (more on that later) chiropractor available for all of your adjustment needs throughout pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. Here are just a few benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy, birth and postpartum.
Comfort and Alignment Throughout Pregnancy
Pregnancy is a beautiful and complex journey, but it can also bring discomfort, especially as the body adapts to your growing baby. Chiropractic care offers expectant mothers a gentle and natural way to find relief. By focusing on spinal and pelvic alignment, Origins Webster-certified chiropractors help alleviate common pregnancy discomforts like back pain, sciatica, and pelvic instability. The adjustments are safe and tailored to suit the unique needs of pregnant persons.
Why does Origins have Webster certified chiropractors? The Webster Chiropractic Technique is a specialized method within chiropractic care designed to address issues related to the pelvic and sacral regions, particularly during pregnancy. This technique focuses on optimizing pelvic alignment and nervous system function. It is not a prenatal or obstetric technique but aims to provide comfort and balance to the mother’s body during pregnancy, potentially improving the baby’s positioning within the womb.
Chiropractic care can play a pivotal role in empowering mothers for labor and delivery. By ensuring proper pelvic alignment, chiropractors create an ideal environment for the baby’s descent and reduce the risk of complications during birth. Additionally, optimizing the nervous system through chiropractic adjustments can contribute to a calmer, less stressful birthing experience, benefitting both mother and child.
By using gentle adjustments and specialized protocols, Webster certified chiropractors aim to reduce musculoskeletal tension and create an optimal environment for the baby’s growth and development. If you are an established patient with one of our Origins chiropractors during pregnancy and need an adjustment for you or baby during labor or after birth, then they will do what they can to attend your birth and assist you with your specific needs.
Nurturing Postpartum Recovery
Chiropractic care aids in the postpartum recovery process by addressing musculoskeletal issues that may arise from pregnancy and childbirth. New mothers often experience discomfort in their backs, shoulders, and necks due to the demands of caring for their newborns. Origins chiropractic adjustments can provide relief, restoring balance and vitality during this crucial phase.
Supporting Overall Wellness
Chiropractic care is not solely about pain relief; it’s also a holistic approach to health and wellness. By improving spinal alignment and enhancing nervous system function, chiropractic care promotes overall well-being for both mother and baby. It’s a natural and drug-free way to ensure that the body is functioning at its best during this important time.
