The Benefits of Care During and After Pregnancy

Little girl with head on moms bellyMany of our pregnant patients are referred to Caplan Chiropractic by their midwife or OB-GYN because safe, gentle chiropractic care offers proven benefits to both Mom and Baby. Some of the many benefits of prenatal chiropractic care include

  • Creates pelvic balance which prepares the pelvis for an easier pregnancy and birth.
  • Reduces undue tension to the uterus, which creates increased ease and comfort throughout pregnancy and birth.
  • Decreases the need for c-sections, epidurals, forceps or other interventions allowing for a safer, easier, natural birth.
  • Reduces tension to the uterus, allowing for more ease and comfort throughout pregnancy
  • Decreases the need for interventions during birth
  • Creates the room babies need to get into the best position for birth
  • Optimizes babies’ development
  • Decreases dystocia (abnormal progress in labor) and birth trauma

We love seeing pregnant women and helping them have the best birth process possible. But care shouldn’t stop there. Birth is traumatic for you and your baby, and getting your body and nervous system back to optimal function through postnatal care can give you the energy to enjoy time with your new baby and truly bond.

Dr. Michelle has adjusted babies a few hours after birth. Even without interventions, being born puts tremendous stress on a baby’s body. Checking and adjusting a baby as soon as possible can help with such issues as

  • Torticollis
  • Head tilts
  • Nursing or latching problems
  • Sleep
  • Digestion
  • Colic

Adjustments on babies are completely different from adjustments for older kids or adults—it’s a very light touch, akin to the pressure you’d use to check a tomato for ripeness. Since kids don’t have years of stress and trauma built up in their bodies, they often respond quickly to chiropractic care.

Our office is very child-friendly, and Dr. Michelle always ensures kids are comfortable before she adjusts them. She takes her time to build rapport, and will even “adjust” some stuffed animals so kids can see what’s involved.
