Did you know that routine chiropractic care throughout pregnancy can help mom and baby be healthier?  Also, have you heard that it can shorten labor time and pain?  Yes, research has shown all this to be true!  Isn’t that encouraging and exciting news?!   This is why Dr. Stephen choose to specialize in prenatal care.  It is a big task for one’s brain to orchestrate and control all functions for one person, yet alone two…  So, during this busy time that a mom’s brain and body are functioning for two, why not use chiropractic care to experience optimal health and wellness?!

At conception, mom’s body releases a hormone called “relaxin”.  This hormone loosens all of mom’s joints, ligaments and muscles to accommodate the precious new life growing inside of her.  Also, throughout the pregnancy mom’s weight and center of gravity will drastically change.  These are just some of the reasons why chiropractic care is so important during this time.  Mom needs to make sure that everything is in the right position to allow maximum room for baby to move and position him or herself correctly.  After all, movement helps baby’s brain development and baby’s positioning not only affects mom’s comfort but also her labor and birth.  Making sure everything in mom’s body is positioned correctly will also help minimize mom’s chances of injuring herself.

 Dr. Stephen utilizes a gentle, specific and safe adjusting approach.  Therefore, you can be confident that you and your baby are getting the best chiropractic prenatal care from a certified doctor.  After your consultation and thorough examination, your doctor of chiropractic can explain your specific care plan and answer any questions.
