PREGNANCY CARE

Pregnancy Care

 

With the number of changes that take place during pregnancy, we know the

care a mother receives is extremely important as it not only affects her body,

her health and the outcome of her birth but the health of her baby. A

woman’s body is designed to give birth. Not only does chiropractic care help

support this natural process it will improve the woman’s ability to have a

safer and more natural birth process.

By removing any stress to a mother’s nervous system her body is able to

function optimally and focus on what it is supposed to be doing – growing a

baby! The mom’s who utilize chiropractic care through out their pregnancy

notice less pregnancy symptoms such as back pain, sciatica, reflux,

headaches and fatigue. We love taking care of pregnant women.

Why? Because by supporting the health of Mom, we are giving baby the best environment possible to develop in!

The goal of treatment is to restore motion to the joints and balance the tissues to keep everything as biomechanically even as possible. Taking the tension off from day one can help allow for optimal growth and development.

About the Webster Technique

What is the Webster Technique?

Chiropractic care in pregnancy is vital to the normal physiological function of both the mother and baby throughout pregnancy and birth. More women and birth providers are joining our tribe as they are discovering the many benefits associated with chiropractic care in pregnancy.

 

Sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother (i.e., dystocia), caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, and baby mal-presentation. The goal of treatment is to restore motion to the joints and balance the tissues to keep everything as biomechanically even as possible. Taking the tension off from day one can help allow for optimal growth and development. Correction of sacral subluxation may have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia.

 

Our goal is to help you achieve the best possible birth outcome. There is no greater reward for us than helping a momma function to the best of her ability through her pregnancy knowing that it will have such a positive, lasting, impact on your family’s newest family member!

Patient Reviews

PREGNANCY & CHIROPRACTIC CARE

My first pregnancy was horrible. I had morning sickness for 19 weeks, reflux the entire time, back pain the third trimester and 36 hours of back labor before the baby arrived. Not exciting. My second pregnancy was COMPLETELY different since I had Dr. Amanda. The care I received and the knowledge I gained during my second pregnancy was priceless. I wish every first-time mom would see her. Not only did I enjoy being pregnant, I had energy, I had NO PAIN, NO REFLUX and my labor from the first contraction to the natural birth of my son was 9 hours. If you are pregnant you need Family Chiropractic

WEBSTER TECHNIQUE

I found Family Chiropractic through ICAN – the International Cesarian Awareness Network. I was searching for a Webster certified chiropractor to help me achieve my second VBAC. Dr. Cotey and Dr. Amanda turned out to be so much more than I expected. They treated me with respect, got to know ME, talked with me about overall health, and helped me achieve my 2VBAC. My entire labor was 3 hours long and the baby was in the PERFECT position for birth!

The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment aimed at balancing the pelvis. The purpose of the technique is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxations, SI joint dysfunction and pelvic imbalance which can cause inadequate uterine function, pelvic contraction, baby mal-presentation (breech or transverse), back pain during pregnancy and even a more difficult labor for mom (dystocia). Once balance is restored through the Webster’s Technique there is more room in the belly for baby to move around and therefore we have seen a number of babies move into an ideal position for labor (i.e. head down).

"When I was 38 weeks pregnant, my baby had been breech for 3 weeks and my doctor's had forced me to schedule a C-section delivery. Dr. Amanda used a technique called Websters, which is completely painless. After just four adjustments, my baby has flipped to head down! " - Erin L.

"As a regular recipient of chiropractic care, it was common sense for me to continue receiving regular adjustments throughout my pregnancy. I knew that receiving regular adjustments would allow my body to remain as healthy and as strong as possible during a time of tremendous physical change as well as, physical and emotional stress. I was looking for a care provider that could support me throughout my pregnancy allowing my body to function as its best. My weekly adjustments allowed me to avoid unnecessary and potentially harmful prescriptions and over the counter medications others use to cope with things like pain, nausea and heart burn, which is extremely important to me. Throughout both of my pregnancies I did not experience back pain that so many women complain about. I was able to keep exercdising and chasing my 2 year old without any discomfort. Because of excellent chiropractic care I received, I was able to have two full term, unassisted and unmedicated births." - Rebecca B.

" I started going to Family Chiropractic when I was pregnant with my fourth. They helped ease my sciatica pain and made me feel more comfortable during pregnancy. They are very personable and knowledgeable and I enjoy visiting their office. Dr. Amanda has been helping our son by adjusting his cranials. His head is looking much more round. I am glad we found them!" - Laura O.

Dr. Cotey and Dr. Amanda turned out to be so much more than I expected. They treated me with respect, got to know ME, talked with me about overall health, and helped me achieve my 2VBAC. My entire labor was 3 hours long and baby was in the PERFECT position for birth - he was out in 3 pushes. Soon after birth, my baby started having nursing problems. I made the decision to have him evaluated by the doctors. After his first adjustment, our nursing sessions improved drastically. They were able to adjust his high palate so he could nurse more efficiently. He is now 7.5 months old and has never been sick, even with strep and HFM running through our house. I attribute this good health to a fully functioning nervous system, thanks to the doctors Jordan. I am a patient for life!" - Kelly L.
