Mums & Mums to be
Mums and mums to be are really real-life superheroes. You are the glue that holds a family together, on the go 24/7 looking after the health and wellbeing of the whole family combined. You never stop.
Considering the work that mums do looking after everyone else. Guess what? Mums need looking after too. Chiropractic care can help them recover from injuries and illnesses they get partly as a result of looking after everyone else in daily life. Long term, Chiropractic can help mothers stay well and function better.
Feeding a baby at 6 am, “mum where’s my milk/your iPhone/my favourite teddy bear/have you done my homework/where’s my taxi/my school clothes/I’ve fell out of a tree, he’s got my thingy…” Doing the school run, trying to stay fit, make meals and keep a household. All while existing on no sleep, coffee and leftovers. And, holding down a career. Sound familiar?
Mums are unique in that they fulfill more roles, and do more in each of these roles than anyone else we see (probably more than the PM).
If you are doing so much mentally and physically, it can of course take its toll upon your mind and body. But you still need to keep going!
Many mums come to see us with the health conditions you’ll see elsewhere throughout the site. They often visit us to be as free of pain and ill health as possible and manage well with their busy lives. Ongoing Chiropractic care can help you stay healthy and prevent problems such as pain and ill health.
Mums never quit, do they? They simply HAVE to keep going and chiropractic care can help ensure that their bodies are less likely to let them down.
But! It all starts well before then…
Pregnancy Chiropractic care can prevent and reduce pain during pregnancy and contribute to the health of both the mum to be and the growing baby. It can make for a much more enjoyable, healthier pregnancy for both mother and baby too.
Many ladies who have chiropractic care during pregnancy experience a much easier and quicker labour, and delivery. It can help prevent cesareans in some cases.
The overall health of your body during pregnancy has to support the life and health of another human being. Chiropractic care can assist your body and your health to be at its best during this time.
Let’s talk about you first. From the start of pregnancy, your body is undergoing many changes, involving your brain, spine, muscles, ligaments, posture, digestive system, lungs, skin and heart.
Weight and hormone changes also place new and sudden physical and emotional stresses on your body.
Your nervous system (brain and nerves) orchestrate and adapt to these changes. But, at the same time, your body is having to deal with these as new stresses. If these stresses become more than we can handle, ill health, injury and pain can occur.
Chiropractic care during and after pregnancy can help improve your ability to deal with these stresses (and joys!). This improves the likelihood that you and your baby stay healthy, before and after the birth.
There are many conditions that bring pregnant ladies to us for Chiropractic care. These include low back and neck pain, sciatica, pubic symphysis dysfunction, pelvic pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, postural faults and misalignments,
Chiropractic works primarily with your nervous system (brain and nerves) which will literally be in communication with the baby throughout the pregnancy. By helping your spine and nerves to work normally, this will help your body to support the baby.
Also, because Chiropractic encourages normal movement and alignment of your pelvis and body, it will reduce constraints on the growing baby.
The better you feel and the healthier you are, the better the health of your baby will be.
Routine chiropractic care can help you and your baby remain healthy after the delivery also. For ladies who are trying for a baby, it makes sense to benefit from Chiropractic care before you actually become pregnant so that your body and nervous system are working well beforehand.
All expectant mothers coming to us for Chiropractic care receive a complimentary newborn check-up for their baby, so that they get a good start in life.
