Positive Pregnancy

The vision and reality of pregnancy is a whirlwind for most people.  Some couples try for years to conceive while for others it happens quickly.  When it does happen it is a rollercoaster of excitement and happiness and then often time FEAR creeps in.  The unknown, the hormones, the misconceptions.  We forget that a woman’s body is designed for birth.  That we have an innate ability to grow another human being and bring them into this world.  A loss of trust in this ability is creating generations of scared moms and  sick kids.

The Mind
Pregnant Woman
A woman’s mood during pregnancy can impact birth outcomes and fetal brain development.  Women who experience significant, persistent anxiety and fear are at a higher risk for premature labor.  We commonly think about how what a woman eats will affect her child but what about how a woman feels?  If mom is constantly filled with anxiety or stress as baby is developing in the womb then the message is communicated that they are in an unsafe environment.  Baby’s brain will already be wired to perceive the environment they are born into as unsafe.  They are more likely to be fussy, hard to soothe, impulsive, and short on attention.  It is important for mom to feel supported, loved, safe and happy.

The Body

The physical aspect of pregnancy is equally as important as the emotional.  Over the past few decades the mindset has changed.  We stopped trusting our bodies and we now commonly interfere during pregnancy and delivery.  A research study was published in JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) Pediatrics in February 2014 which concluded that acetaminophen use during pregnancy can increase the risk of a child developing ADHD-like behaviors.  Acetaminophen, such as over-the-counter Tylenol, is frequently recommended by doctors for pregnant women with pain.  Pain can be present during pregnancy because the body is changing but that should be respected, controlled and treated with a safe option.  Chiropractic care can be beneficial for pain relief but the benefits far exceed reducing symptoms.  As an ICPA certified Webster practitioner, I use specific adjustments and a technique and equipment designed for pregnancy.   Chiropractic adjustments can balance the pelvis and allow the body to change without disrupting function.  A balanced pelvis can help the child to be in an optimal position for delivery.  It can help mom to be active throughout pregnancy which is extremely beneficial for body and soul.  

And The Soul
Throughout my years as a chiropractor I have had the joy of helping moms and dads during their journey into parenthood.  I encourage women to trust and respect the wisdom of their body and help them prepare by offering knowledge, support and of course quality chiropractic care.  Be informed and be empowered.
