Pre-Natal Chiropractic Care
Having a breech baby isn't the only reason a pregnant Mom comes to me for chiropractic care. Some of us have experienced the discomfort of pregnancy first hand. These aches and pains are common as a result of the release of a hormone called Relaxin. Relaxin is a hormone that relaxes the ligaments during pregnancy to allow for growth of the baby in Mommy's tummy.
When ligaments relax, the muscles have to work harder to hold the bones of the spine in the proper position. This and the increased work load of the pelvis while carrying a child are common reasons for low back pain during pregnancy.
Getting chiropractic adjustments during this time helps regulate the hormones that maintain a healthy pregnancy. Too much of one hormone and you go into early labor. Too little of another hormone and you have bloating and water retention. And as you learned last week, when the ligaments of the uterus aren't just right, you can have a breech baby.
Your pregnant friends may not know that they can find relief through chiropractic care. With just a little fine-tuning, they can be feeling great in no time! Will you please share this letter with them?
