If you could say one thing to an expecting mom what would it be?
I’d probably tell them, “you don’t have to feel this way!” I would imagine if you were to close your eyes and imagine a pregnant mom close to her due date; you’d see a picture of someone that is uncomfortable, exhausted and saying “I can’t wait to get this baby out!” Unfortunately that is the what the majority of expecting moms sound and look like. But as I mentioned, It doesn’t have to be that way! As a matter of fact it can be on the complete other end of the spectrum. An expecting mom can be glowing, vibrant, and full of energy! But you might ask how? The answer is Prenatal Chiropractic!
Many people are shocked to hear how beneficial Chiropractic care can be for an expecting mom. As a matter of fact, I’d argue that providing prenatal adjustments might be our most important job! For the men and those not pregnant reading this newsletter don’t take that personally; we love caring for each one of you and helping you be at your best as well, however, Prenatal chiropractic is just different!
There is a lot going on
Many people associate prenatal chiropractic with low back pain, sciatica, carpal tunnel to name a few conditions. As beneficial as adjustments may be for those conditions, chiropractic goes way beyond just helping the mom. If you’ve been pregnant this should come as no surprise, an expecting mom experiences not only physical changes, but emotional and hormonal changes are happening at the same time as well, causing a pregnant mom to be under constant stress!
You’ll sleep better as well
So yes Chiropractic helps with the physical changes of ligaments loosening, muscles tightening, feet swelling and hands tingling. But in addition, when a pregnant mom starts to get adjusted she starts to sleep better, have better digestion, and have more energy to name a few.
Benefits go beyond just Mom
Not only does chiropractic help with helping mom feel better, but it helps prepare mom to achieve the best birth for both her and her newborn baby. But wait; Mom isn’t the only one benefiting here; the baby benefits from chiropractic as well. Moms who were adjusted during their pregnancy report better birth and delivery outcomes, babies who sleep better, a better bond with their baby and more effective breastfeeding compared to those who had no Chiropractic care.
Because it’s common, doesn’t mean it’s normal
Now you see why we believe that adjusting an expecting mom is so important. So do us a favor and share this with someone you believe that could benefit from knowing how important chiropractic can be for helping moms navigate through pregnancy with ease. Remember, just because it’s normal for expecting moms to be exhausted, suffer with low-back pain and sciatica; It doesn’t have to be this way!
Let us at Mission 516 Chiropractic help you experience the best pregnancy and birth possible.
