PREGNANCY & PEDIATRIC CARE

Pregnancy care consists of prenatal (before birth) and postpartum (after birth) healthcare for expectant mothers. It involves treatments, exercise and advice to ensure a healthy pregnancy, labor and delivery for mom and baby.

OUR CHIROPRACTOR, DR. JESSICA KISSOON, IS CERTIFIED IN WEBSTER TECHNIQUE THROUGH THE INTERNATIONAL CHIROPRACTIC PEDIATRIC ASSOCIATION (ICPA)

Webster Technique is a safe and gentle chiropractic technique that helps to restore neurofunctional balance to the pelvis. Although it can be used for anyone with pelvic dysfunction (e.g. menstrual pain), research has shown that it is a very effective form of treatment for pregnant women. We target the joints, muscles and ligaments of the pelvis to release tension and improve the physiological function of both the mother and the baby in pregnancy and birth.

Along with aiding in promoting a safe and normal labour and delivery, treatment with the Webster protocol can help to alleviate low back and pubic pain related to pregnancy.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF PRENATAL CHIROPRACTIC
IMG_2527.jpg
FOR MOM
  • Prepares the pelvis for an easier pregnancy and birth by creating a state of balance in the bones, muscles and ligaments of the pelvis

  • Removes torsion in the ligaments that support the uterus thus potentially reducing aberrant tension to the woman’s uterus

  • Reduces interference to the mother’s nervous system which controls and coordinates all of her systems and functions

  • By improving maternal function we are decreasing the potential for unnecessary intervention (i.e. C-section).

FOR BABY
  • Reduces interference to the mother’s nervous system allowing for better baby development

  • Pelvic balance allows the baby greater room to develop without restrictions to their developing cranium, spine and other skeletal structures

  • Offers the baby the room to move into the best possible position for birth

  • With proper fetal positioning, there is a significant decrease in dystocia (difficult birth), and the resulting birth trauma associated with intervention.

PREGNANCY MASSAGE

Pregnancy massage is massage therapy specifically tailored for the expectant mother's needs. It is also called a prenatal massage. Pregnancy massage has been found to reduce stress, decrease swelling in the arms and legs, and relieve aches and pains in muscles and joints. It is a popular complementary therapy during pregnancy for back pain when choices for pain relief such as medication are limited.
