Congratulations! You are going to have a baby!
At Empower Family Chiropractic, Dr. J has been privileged to work with several expectant families and hope that you will include us on your healthcare team during your pregnancy and beyond.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy is safe, gentle, and offers many advantages both to mom and her unborn baby. Our experience in working with mothers-to-be has given us both the knowledge and skill to safely and gently care for the changing body of an expectant mother. .
A Mom’s Guide to Prenatal Chiropractic Care
During pregnancy, your body goes through 40 to 42 weeks of incredible metamorphosis and growth. Throughout this life-altering journey, several of these changes can cause temporary pain and discomfort.
Chiropractic care can help relieve pain naturally and enable you to maintain a healthy pregnancy. As your body helps your baby grow, chiropractic treatments can also prepare your body for a smoother delivery and aid in faster recovery during the postpartum months to come.
Dr. J will take special precautions with you during your pregnancy. Modifications to the adjusting techniques and the table (pregnancy pillows to accommodate a growing belly) are made during each stage of pregnancy. With further certification in the Webster Technique, the specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment for pregnant women, Dr. J is able to help create more room for your child in the womb, helping you both maintain a healthy, comfortable pregnancy and delivery. She is one of the few Doctors of Chiropractic in the Lake Travis area certified in the Webster Technique.
We’ll teach you stretches and exercises to practice for a smooth delivery. Dr. J also provides additional information for mothers regarding nutrition, supplements, physical activity, stress reduction and other important elements of health during pregnancy and postpartum.
Partnership and Preparation
There’s a reason why so many OBGYNs, nurses, doulas and midwives refer their patients to Empower Family Chiropractic during pregnancy: because it works. It’s an honor to be a part of your birth team to help prepare you for your optimal birthing experience!
