Pregnancy & Newborns
There are a lot of emotions that come with pregnancy and having a child. There are also a few aches and pains associated with these experiences. While pregnancy is a beautiful and wonderful part of life, it can be difficult for some, both in terms of fertility struggles, pregnancy discomfort, and birthing complications. Even a natural and normal birthing process can affect babies’ spines and can result in trouble down the road. Chiropractic care can help alleviate the discomfort that many women go through, as well as improve the stress and complications during this time.
Through gentle, precise, and scientific adjustments, Dr. Blayne Baker uses chiropractic techniques to improve the communication between the nervous system and the rest of the body. At Atlas Chiropractic, we are dedicated to helping all women, whether they are trying to conceive, currently pregnant, or already have children, to improve their health and prepare their body for the next phase of their life. We use a holistic approach and preventative measures, as well as treat current aches and pains you may have. Here are just a few of the ways we make a difference.
Helping with Fertility
If you want to improve your chances of becoming pregnant, whether you’ve been struggling to do so or not, research shows that a chiropractor may help with fertility. Restoring spinal alignment can increase your chances of conceiving while also preparing your body for childbirth. When the health of your body is in optimal condition, your menstrual and ovulation cycle will stay consistent and function normally. This is an important part of getting pregnant and the team at Atlas Chiropractic can help.
Care During Pregnancy
Once you become pregnant, your body goes through extreme changes because you are now doing everything for two. Being healthy during your pregnancy is essential for both you and your child, and Dr. Blayne Baker assists in making sure your nervous system function is optimized and your spine is properly aligned.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy can help reduce the amount of swelling and pain that can is often associated with this time in your life, and it can help your body create the best environment for your baby, as well as prepare your body for giving birth. We do this by ensuring that your spine and pelvis are properly aligned, creating the necessary space for your growing baby. Expectant mothers want healthy and safe deliveries, and we understand the impact delivery has on your body. That is why we are always gentle and precise when making spinal adjustments so you have the best pregnancy experience possible.
After giving birth, chiropractic adjustments can help revive energy levels and correct misalignment of the pelvis. Because the body goes through so much during the birthing process, it can need extra attention to heal. Maintaining a chiropractic regimen during and after pregnancy has proven effective and beneficial both short-term and long-term.
Chiropractic Care for Newborns
We often think about the mother’s health during birth, but the infant is also going through a physical and mental experience during the birthing process. Childbirth can affect the strength, balance, coordination, and other nervous function systems of an infant, leading to problems in infanthood and beyond. Chiropractic adjustments can help newborns recover from the birthing process and avoid issues like acid reflux, colic, sleep problems, and more.
