"Chiropractic was designed to help you heal better, so that you can feel better"
Preconception Health is the health of the body of both mom and dad before pregnancy.
The period before you become pregnant is an important time because your diet, physical, and emotional health can have an impact on your ability to conceive and affect the health of your baby. Those wanting to become pregnant should prepare at least 5-6 months prior to conception. Some of the benefits of improving your preconception health include:
Improves fertility by providing an optimal environment for conception
Supports a healthy pregnancy
Promotes optimal development of baby
Facilitates healing of the body in the post-natal period
Benefits of Chiropractic for preconception health:
The reproductive system is under the direction of the nervous system. Nerves transmit impulses, sensations, to every part of the body, including the spinal cord, muscles and organs, to help them function. According to the American Pregnancy Association, “In many cases, fertility issues may be associated with improper nervous system function, poor nutrition, high stress and poor lifestyle habits. Chiropractors are nervous system specialists and reducing interference in the nervous system is their primary goal.”
Regular chiropractic adjustments in the prenatal stages can relieve and even prevent discomforts commonly experienced during pregnancy. Get RELIEF and back to enjoying your bump!
Women who have had regular chiropractic care during pregnancy have experienced:
less discomfort (less back back, sciatica, nausea, fatigue)
shorter labor times
easier recovery after birth
Although chiropractors do not turn breech babies, gentle adjustments to the spine and pelvis help your baby get into the optimal position for birth.
Doctors of Chiropractic work specifically with your pelvis to restore balance and create an environment for your baby that allows for an easier and safe delivery.

Chiropractic care is essential in re-balancing the nervous system after birth, and is beneficial in relieving common post-pregnancy complaints such as low back pain and nursing mother's neck.
Our nervous system is the control center of the body. Different areas of the spine control certain parts of the body. Spinal misalignments create interference in the nervous system that disrupt communication between the body and brain, and vice versa.
Imagine trying to water your garden, but there is a kink in the hose. Your plants do not get enough water, and they wither and dry out. Now imagine a "kink" in your nervous system that doesn't allow signals from your brain to your body, or your body to your brain. Your body will not function properly, which can lead to symptoms such as:
menstrual cycle irregularities, painful menses
Chiropractic adjustments reduce any interference on the nervous system so that your body can heal better, so that you feel better, and stay better!
