Choosing a Prenatal Chiropractor

Why You May Need A Prenatal Chiropractor

Searching for a ‘Prenatal Chiropractor near Me’? Dr. Tyler is Webster Certified and trained to care for you during pregnancy! Webster Technique is a certification by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) for chiropractors to gain expertise in safely caring for pregnant women.

As your pregnancy progresses, numerous physiological changes take place. Your baby is growing, leading to adaptations in your internal organs. The production of the hormone Relaxin contributes to the loosening of ligaments and joints, and the added weight you carry can strain different muscles. Our pregnancy chiropractic services are tailored to address these transformative changes, ensuring the optimal function of your pelvis, spine, and nervous system during this crucial time. Trust us for expert care in supporting your well-being throughout your pregnancy journey.

During pregnancy, your nervous system is connected with your baby’s nervous system via the umbilical cord.  During stressful times, that stress is transmitted to your baby, putting your baby in fight-or-flight mode before even being born.  Our nervous system cannot be in growth/development mode while in fight-or-flight mode (also called sympathetic dominance).  Seeing a chiropractor during pregnancy helps to remove noise or interference from the neuro-communication between mother and baby, thus optimizing your baby’s growth, development, and well-being.  This puts both mom and baby in a good position for a smooth pregnancy, labor, delivery, and post-natal life.

What You Should Know About C-Sections

Sometimes C-Sections are Needed, Sometimes Not​. Our C-Section Rate is Too High. For many years now, C-sections have accounted for close to ⅓ of births.  Most medical professional organizations state that the C-section rate should be somewhere around 10-15%.  Other more holistic professional bodies believe the rate should be closer to 5%.

How Chiropractic Care can Help with Birth Trauma

It doesn’t take special training to watch a birth and understand that it is traumatic for the mom and baby. If you’ve experienced birth you’ve felt the stretching of tissues in the birth canal. Your baby has the pressure of moving down the vaginal canal and out of your pelvis (or stomach!) Birth is hard on both your bodies.
