The Aim for our Pregnant Mums with Chiropractic

We would want to see your body ‘baby ready’, avoid and overcome pregnancy pains and complaints. Having a well-balanced spine and pelvis is valuable at every stage in your life, but even more so when you are pregnant and carrying the increasing load of your baby. Have you ever noticed how a pregnant woman’s pelvis tilts forward? As Chiropractors we do!

Have you a plan to deliver your baby in the most natural way possible? We have that same hope for you and will work closely with you and your body to achieve this.

Although most complaints from our pregnant Mums is back pain, lower back pain, sciatica to name a few. Our Chiropractors will assess your  spine and pelvis prior to, and during, your pregnancy to ensure they are optimally aligned and that the pelvic support structures, such as muscle and ligaments, are ready for the major physical challenges of pregnancy, labour and birth.

One study found 85% of Pregnant Women Get Back Pain Relief with Chiropractic [1]

At Belridge Chiropractic the main reasons women seek assistance for pregnancy are:

  • Pain of the lower back, symphysis pubis, pelvis, legs, ribs, shoulders, neck, hands
  • Creating optimal room for their baby to move and grow both physically and neurologically
  • Support in achieving a natural physiologic labour, including VBACs
  • The 6-week postnatal assessment to assess pelvic stability and abdominal healing
  • Recovery from the pregnancy and labour for both mother and baby

Gentle Chiropractic care for newborns and infants

Whether it be the passage of labour and birth, the bumps and falls through infancy, or the heavy knocks in the school playground, there are many ways a small body can get out of balance.

At our Belridge Chiropractic clinic you will never see an infant or child “cracked”. It’s not what we do, because we believe little bodies require gentle, and highly specific care. There are many wonderful and natural ways to help a growing body be it’s very best!

Intrauterine constraint, exposure to toxins, and even labour itself can be incredibly stressful on a newborn’s body and nervous system. As they get older, injuries, falls and bumps, retained primitive reflexes, and other physical, chemical and emotional stress factors can alter the balance of the nervous system and spine. Chiropractors are specialists of the nervous system. The only way to know how well a child is developing, or identify any problems early, is to be checked by a trained professional.

Dr Emily Arnett and Dr Nancy Messiha are our resident pregnancy and childcare Chiropractors.
