Are you pregnant and looking for a safe, natural treatment to help you through the demands of growing a baby? Congratulations!

The changes within your body

Pregnancy Care Pregnancy is a unique and powerful experience that results in enormous physical, hormonal and emotional changes over a relatively short period of time. Not only does the added weight of the abdomen cause your centre of gravity to change, the influx of hormones softens your body’s ligaments and causes your spine and pelvis to become more flexible. As a result, postural changes – including an increase in the low and mid back curves – will increase stress on your spine and may lead to a range of symptoms, such as:
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Rib pain
  • Sciatica
  • Headaches

Chiropractic care can assist you on your journey to motherhood and beyond

Pregnancy Care Our chiropractors are trained in obstetrics and paediatrics and offer gentle techniques to help alleviate your symptoms throughout all stages of your pregnancy. More importantly, chiropractic care is drug-free so you can rest assured that your symptoms can be relieved without any impact on the health of your baby. The birth process can be traumatic for both the mother and the baby, and chiropractic care is very effective in helping both to recover. After you give birth, the body not only has to recover from the changes made during the pregnancy but also from the effects of the delivery. On top of this, there is the demanding job of caring for a newborn! As your pelvis and lower back are particularly vulnerable to lasting strains from the forces involved in childbirth, it is important to resume chiropractic care as soon as possible following the delivery of your baby. Chiropractic can help with post childbirth issues such as:
  • Back problems
  • Stress incontinence
  • Constipation
  • Menstrual problems
  • Headache
  • And more…
Your chiropractor can help correct changes that have occurred during your pregnancy, labour and delivery, as well as assess and treat symptoms that may arise as a result of your new daily tasks, such as breast-feeding, moving car seats, reaching over cots or bassinets, or carrying a child on one hip.
