Pregnancy Chiropractic at Perry Family Chiropractic

Pregnancy is a time of so much change for a mother. It’s an exciting time full of hope and anticipation. However, it also usually comes with some discomfort, both physically and emotionally. As a woman’s body changes and grows during her pregnancy, her center of gravity begins to shift and her ligaments relax. This can be painful and add extra stress on the mom’s spine and pelvis. The goal of prenatal chiropractic care is for the mother to have an enjoyable pregnancy with a successful birth outcome.

At Perry Family Chiropractic, we help give pregnant patients a chance to relax and feel supported. We have a special table and a memory foam pillow that allows for extra comfort without putting any pressure on the baby or belly.

During pregnancy, I help mothers maintain their pelvic health as they prepare for delivery. Structurally, chiropractic helps the mother prepare for birth as it helps keep her pelvis symmetrical. This will create an easier transition for the baby during birth.

It is important to note that chiropractors need to be trained to specifically support pregnant bodies. Dr. Katy has extensive training and experience supporting pregnant and postpartum bodies. Beside the structural and muscular chiropractic care, Dr. Katy helps mothers find a state of calm so they can labor easier and be in less distress. “I adjust specifically to support my pregnant patients so they can reach a place of calm and rest,” she says. She also offers useful tips to any birth partners. Read more about the Webster Technique to learn more. Pregnancy chiropractic care has been proven to reduce labor times and to relieve many challenging symptoms. The Webster technique was designed to align the mother’s pelvis and to reduce stress on the uterine ligaments, which allows for space for the baby to grow in the ideal position for birthing (head-down). This also benefits the baby’s brain development. “I love seeing babies to help make sure that there isn’t strain on their nervous system because delivery can be a stressful process. Chiropractic care can help ensure that babies have optimally functioning nervous systems, just as it helps kids and adults,” explains Dr. Katy. “I usually see that babies nurse better and sleep better after receiving gentle spinal care.” No matter how far along you are in your pregnancy, Dr. Katy is eager to support you along your journey to motherhood. She is passionate about being a trusted provider who can offer a compassionate ear as well as gentle and effective pregnancy chiropractic care throughout your entire pregnancy and beyond. A mother’s health dictates how healthy her baby will be. The stronger and healthier a mother is, the stronger and healthier her baby is!

During the postpartum period, mothers need quality spinal care as her nervous system has been through a lot. Nursing and feeding a baby can additionally cause back and neck discomfort. Using the same gentle method that is used during pregnancy, Dr. Katy supports postpartum healing by allowing the mother space to heal. Perry Family Chiropractic understands how much support a postpartum mother needs. By focusing on realigning her spine, Dr. Katy helps a postpartum mother’s nervous system. During the postpartum period, a lot of the mother’s energy is focused on her baby. Chiropractic care during this time allows the mother to have some self-care, which will help her mind and body relax.
