If there was a way to make your pregnancy better would you do it?
If there was research proving that something very simple would improve your chances of having a healthy baby, would you be more interested?
My wife and I are a mere 4 weeks (give or take) until our lives change forever!
Yep, just 4 weeks until our new baby girl arrives.
We (my wife) have been through quite a little these last few months.
For anyone who has been through this, I don't need to present the list.
For anyone who hasn't, it's long, though still worth it.
Now I could spend the entirety of this blog talking just how much my wife has been a champ through this whole thing, but I'll leave it at this-
She has been amazing, strong, and growing our child with a grace and glow I can only stand to smile at.
She, so far, has had a pregnancy many could only dream of.
(minus the kidney stones of course)
First trimester nausea was only ever that. Food always stayed down.
and this short little story.
'Our last OB appointment, our doctor was asking all of the standard appointment questions to make sure everything was ok. Then she asked, "how is your low back pain and your hip pain?" Katie: "I don't really have any"
Our OB was so surprised because at this point in the pregnancy, not being in pain is such a rarity!
So naturally I told her that Katie was seeing a fantastic chiropractor!'
Why is this?
Because she has a body functioning the way a body is supposed to during pregnancy.
Let me break it down for you. Because, if you, your wife, your sister, aunt, etc, wants a pregnancy the way your body was designed, I have a way to make that happen:
Pregnancy is a process in which a woman's body goes through an immense amount of changes and stress.
As stress is placed upon the body, a normal and stable foundation (your spine) starts to get lost.
An incorrect or unstable spine can put pressure on our nerves. The very nerves that connect our body and brain with information to keep us functioning the way we are supposed to.
We are much more prone to these issues during pregnancy.
To make sure we keep a stable foundation, we need to see someone who is an expert at keeping our spines well aligned, even in the midst of an increase in stress upon the body.
But please don't just take my word for it.
Research done in 2014 shows that simple adjustments to the spine can produce significantly improved pregnancy outcomes.
Research has proven that spinal adjustments improve pregnancy and health outcomes for both the mother and the baby.
It also shows that a much higher chance of the mother having a healthier, shorter and much more successful birthing process.
