The pregnant mother should visit her family chiropractor in conjunction with her regularly scheduled pre-natal checkups. These visits ensure that the mother’s spine is moving properly in order to allow for proper decent of the baby into the birth canal. Improper biomechanics of the spine can contribute not only to a painful pregnancy, but also to a more arduous and prolonged labor.
Dr. Erin will meet with the mother and father to assess adequate nutrition and exercise, in addition to appropriate spinal biomechanics. Spinal biomechanics, nutrition, positive thinking, and exercise are essential for proper fetal development and maternal health.
