PREGNANCY, MOTHERHOOD & BABY CHIROPRACTIC
Expecting_edited.jpg

The journey to and through motherhood is challenging for even the most straight-forward pregnancy, birth and feeding journey. It can be taxing on the body in many ways and Chiropractic care can be a great option to support you and ensure you don't have to suffer through without prioritising your own wellbeing.  Additionally, baby and toddler chiropractic can help to support the growth and development of a healthy spine and ensure musculoskeletal function.

PREGNANCY CHIROPRACTIC

Chiropractic techniques aim to help ease musculoskeletal aches and pains that pregnancy commonly brings.

 

Working harmoniously with your Obstetrician, Midwife and women's health Physiotherapist, chiropractic care  addresses the musculoskeletal causes of rib, pelvic, back and spine pain during pregnancy. Additionally, for some people, may provide adequate relief to reduce the need for pain medication for those musculoskeletal conditions.

MOTHERHOOD
CHIROPRACTIC 

We can provide Mum's with gentle chiropractic care in the comfort of your home to help support your health and wellbeing through this transition.

 It is best to see your OB, GP or Midwife for clearance first before seeing your chiropractor.

Reasons you may seek care:

  • Postural aches from feeding, carrying, wearing, rocking baby

  • Back or pelvic or rib pain persisting from pregnancy

  • Abdominal muscle weakness/lack of core strength

BABY

CHIROPRACTIC

Chiropractic for infant's is gentle stretching similar to the finger pressure used to test ripeness of fruit. Appointments are longer to ensure comfort of bub and accommodate feeds, nappy changes and settling.

Babies can also display signs of musculoskeletal discomfort such as:

  • Fussiness at feeding/latching or restricted neck or shoulder movement during feeding

  • Difficulty with tummy time or carseat rides

  • Difficulty during changing nappy or clothes

  • Preference for head position in bed i.e. always turning to one side

  • Plagiocephaly (Flat head)
