Pregnancy can be a huge physical and emotional stress on the mother (and an emotional stress for the father too!) The environment of the developing baby in the womb, is fully determined by how healthy the mother is. When the mother is able to produce a nurturing environment for the developing baby, the baby is able to grow properly.
Spinal misalignments (subluxations) in the mother will affect nerve flow between her brain and body (think of the uterus) and can affect the environment that the baby develops in. These subluxations can also affect the alignment of the pelvis which can have a drastic effect on the ability of the mother to deliver the baby naturally (vaginally) or if medical intervention is required (caesarean section, forceps, vacuum extraction, etc).
By checking the mother’s spine and pelvis for misalignments, before, during and after pregnancy, we are able to ensure that the mother is working at her highest potential, which as research shows, has statistically beneficial positive outcomes for normal delivery of healthy babies, and healthy mom’s.
