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 any prenatal team. Making sure that your body is functioning at a higher level, allows you and your baby to work better together and ideally follow the path of least resistance. Regular chiropractic care combined with other things, including, but not limited to physical therapy, acupuncture, regular exercise and a healthy diet help support a healthy pregnancy.
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! As a gift, families under regular chiropractic care receive a complimentary checkup for their newborn within the first month of birth.
Dr. Erica chose to have unmedicated births with all of her children, but for unforseen reasons, ended up with a cesarean section with her first born, after much healing, physically and emotionally, she went on to have three vaginal births after her cesarean (VBAC) at home with her other children. The contrast between births, gives Dr. Erica a unique perspective to support families on their journey, wherever it may lead.
