Pregnant Women benefit from Chiropractic Care
During your pregnancy, your body is undergoing major transformations. Achy muscles and joints are common as your baby grows especially during months 5-9 when your baby has grown substantially larger. Pain in your low back, ribs, abdomen, pelvis and legs are very common as you progress throughout your pregnancy.
Most women think they have to endure this pain because medications are not recommended during pregnancy. Great news! Chiropractic is a natural, safe and effective form of pain management during your pregnancy. By relieving the pressure in the joints of your spine, pelvis, hips and legs the pain often goes away without needing to take drugs!
Other benefits of chiropractic during your pregnancy include improved sleep, increased mobility, decreased back and leg pain and improved pelvic function during labour/childbirth.
Chiropractic adjustments are gentle, and will help you feel so much better during your pregnancy.
"I began seeing Dr. Megan when I was 6 months pregnant; by that point, my back was in bad shape because of my changing body. A family/friend suggested that I see a Chiropractor because it helped her through her pregnancy.
I was very skeptical about chiropractic care, so I booked a complimentary consultation before making my first appointment. Dr. Megan was very professional and explained her educational background and the benefits of chiropractic care.
I felt comfortable enough to proceed with my first adjustment immediately following the complimentary consultation. I received regular chiropractic care for the rest of my pregnancy and noticed a change in how I felt immediately. She addressed my changing needs at every visit and was very patient and gentle. My baby was overdue by 10 days and I went into see Dr. Megan just before going into labour.
I wish that I had started treatment sooner, and truly believe that the chiropractic care I received helped me through the more difficult stages of pregnancy and labour. I would highly recommended Dr. Megan to both pregnant women and also to anyone and everyone who is looking for professional, drug free, pain relief."
