Just as you would take time to prepare for a marathon, it is wise to take time to prepare for birth. Chiropractic care is an important part of pregnancy. Making sure that your body is properly aligned, will allow your baby to have sufficient room to grow and move into the most ideal position for birth. Regular chiropractic care can aid in an easier and faster delivery for mom.
Birth is usually the first traumatic event we experience in life, as the uterus contracts, we get pushed through the birth canal and sometimes, babies need extra help, via c-section, or by other means, and they get pulled out into the world. The push and pull of birth can result in your baby having subluxations after birth. Just as I have done with my children, I want to make sure your children's spines are subluxation free, so they can start their journey off strong!
Erica attends births as a doula to serve women during this life changing experience, and should the need arise, she may evaluate the mother's spine, and pelvis before birth. She chose to have unmedicated births with both of her children, but for unforseen reasons, ended up with a cesarean section with her son, and was able to have a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) at home with her daughter. The contrast between births, gives Dr. Erica a unique perspective to support you on your journey, wherever it may lead.
