Did you know that recent studies indicate that almost 80% of women experience lower back and/or pelvic problems (and pain) during pregnancy? In addition, the inability to do much about it has led many women to feel that they could not enjoy their pregnancy due to such discomfort. For this very reason, we felt a strong need to offer these women the services they need to have an optimal pregnancy experience.
The body’s intelligence wants the easiest route out for the baby. If mother’s biomechanics are compromised, obstetric interventions are more likely to be recommended and implemented. Each and every intervention has significant side effects for both mother and baby. At Life First chiropractic we make sure the mothers body is functioning at 100% so interventions are not needed. A woman's body is AMAZING and is made to go through the wonderful process of birth naturally.
The mother’s pelvis has various key ligaments attached that support her uterus. As the baby grows, their role becomes increasingly important. If her pelvis is in biomechanical balance during pregnancy, the uterus will be supported symmetrically. This allows the baby optimal room for movement in utero and provides it the opportunity to develop free of constraint.
