Rather than being wholly excited about the upcoming birth of their little one, many pregnant women develop anxiety over the act of giving birth. What if there were a way to help decrease not only the pains of labor, but the duration of labor? Regular chiropractic adjustments throughout the pregnancy have been found to not only decrease labor pains and labor time, but also helped mothers in their third trimester carry their baby more comfortably.
According to the American Pregnancy Association, along with reduced labor times and pain, chiropractic care throughout the pregnancy helps to maintain a healthier pregnancy, control symptoms of nausea, relieve back, neck and joint pain and also prevent a potential cesarean delivery. There are no known contraindications of chiropractic during pregnancy.
While all chiropractors are trained in the treatment and care of pregnant women, some take a particular interest in prenatal and postnatal care, including Dr. Melinda. She has gained close to 200 extra hours outside of the standard chiropractic education curriculum to specialize in prenatal, postnatal and pediatric care.
