Your pregnancy and birth can be enjoyable and empowering!
Prenatal Chiropractic Care
Dr. Tara thoroughly enjoys working with expectant mothers so that they may have an enjoyable pregnancy and achieve the birth they desire. Chiropractic care for the pregnant woman corrects spinal, pelvic and cranial misalignments (subluxations). This balances the spinal and pelvic muscles, ligaments and relieves stress on the nervous system which allows healthy development of the fetus and will usually facilitate a safer, easier delivery.
Chiropractic can be helpful for your pregnancy aches and pains. When you are suffering with pain, your baby also feels your pain! If you have suffered from back pain at any time prior to pregnancy, it is likely that the stresses of pregnancy will re-activate the pain during pregnancy. Sometimes those with no back pain history may experience pain that makes pregnancy and birth very uncomfortable. Pubic symphysis disorder (PSD) is a common ailment we see in the office that often is alleviated when normal pelvic biomechanics are restored.
Because of the effect that chiropractic adjustment has on all body functions, pregnant mothers should have their spines checked regularly from pre-conception to delivery, optimizing the brain body connection and balancing the spine and pelvis allowing for safer, easier deliveries and health benefits for both the mother and baby. For mothers who recently delivered, Dr. Tara offers to stabilize the pelvic regions as the ligaments are lax due to the hormonal changes of pregnancy and birth.
Dr. Tara is certified in the Webster Technique for pregnancy, a safe, gentle, and effective chiropractic treatment that prepares the pregnant woman for delivery. Midwives and doulas frequently recommend chiropractic care for their clients as they often see the benefits for their clients.
