Caring-for-Expectant-Moms

Guiding You Through a Healthy Pregnancy

The added weight from your baby and hormonal changes make the pelvis more flexible, which can result in the spinal joints, muscles and ligaments more susceptible to injury.

Chiropractic care can help expectant moms by:

  • Educating you on correct posture, lifting and other lifestyle factors that can reduce spinal stress
  • Ensuring the joints of the pelvis and low back move freely for a successful birth
  • Helping the spine adapt to the increased weight and altered posture of pregnancy
  • Recommending exercises to improve spinal health
  • Restoring joint mechanics to reduce pain and improve function

Dr. Saylor and Dr. Ashley have both undertaken obstetric studies during their time at chiropractic school. Additionally, they have both acquired additional education specific to women before, during and after pregnancy.

If you’re wondering whether or not chiropractic can help you, common signs that you may need to be adjusted include:

  • Breech presentation
  • In-utero constraint
  • High blood pressure
  • Baby likes to stay in one position
  • Baby sits high
  • Extremity swelling

The Webster Technique for a Better Delivery

Developed by Dr. Larry Webster of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, the Webster Technique releases stress on your pelvis. It allows your uterus to relax, giving the baby enough space to turn into the proper position for birth.

Following delivery, we always recommend that you get your newborn checked, especially if they’re showing any signs of nervous system disturbance including:

  • Misshapen or cone head, uneven eye orbits or head tilting
  • Constipation or fussiness
  • Problems latching or excessive spitting up
  • Sleeping issues
  • Excessive arching or stiffness
  • One crease of buttocks higher than the other

If you’ve been coming to us for prenatal care, we’re happy to offer a first newborn examination to your bundle of joy free of charge.

Enjoy a comfortable pregnancy experience with prenatal chiropractic in Royal Oak. Don’t delay — get started now!
