"I, 1000% assure everyone that chiropractic adjustments make a world of difference in pregnancy! I went into labor early with my first two babies at term. With my 3rd baby I suffered much then I was used to. I had a painful misalignments in my pelvis and hips. Thanks to frequent chiropractic adjustments at Iowa Family Chiropractic my 4th daughter came nice, easy and healthy at 37 weeks! I fully believe it was chiropractic care from Iowa Family Chiropractic that made the difference!"

WHY CHIROPRACTIC CARE DURING PREGNANCY?
During the months of pregnancy, hormones cause women’s ligaments and muscles to relax, which may cause pain and compromise of the nervous system. There is never a more important time to be under chiropractic care than during pregnancy - the physiological changes that are occurring in both mom and baby are incredible. It is a dynamic process during a short period of time, which means regular check-ups, proper nutrition and exercise, and plenty of planning. Chiropractic allows women to be and feel their best during one of the most important times during their lives - before, during and after pregnancy.
It has been shown that women who stay active during pregnancy have fewer complications and interventions during birth than those who do not, and there are also both short and long term benefits to the baby. The doctors at IFC can help you to remain pain-free and increase your ability to move during this time, allowing you to stay active.
Research has also shown many benefits of chiropractic treatments during pregnancy, including decreased intervention during the birth process, decreased need for pain control during labor, the ability to deliver with more comfort, and decreased average length of labor.
The doctors at Iowa Family Chiropractic have been trained in a number of techniques in order to keep mom comfortable during her prenatal adjustments and provide maximum safety for pregnant women and their babies.
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that reduces the interference to the nervous system and balances maternal pelvic muscles and ligaments. This in turn reduces torsion in the uterus, a cause of intra-uterine constraint of the baby and allows for optimal fetal positioning in preparation for birth. Getting adjusted during your pregnancy can help to give both mom and baby a better experience. All doctors at IFC are trained, certified and well versed in the Webster Technique.
A Message From Dr. Kellie
As a mother of two, I know firsthand what it is like to be overwhelmed while pregnant. Your life doesn't slow down just because of your morning sickness, back pain or heartburn!
I want you to know - you do NOT need to live with pain during pregnancy!
If you are like most other pregnant moms you take care of others before you take care of yourself.
You are selfless. You are caring and loving. And that is exactly what makes you an AMAZING MOM.
Chances are though, you're unnecessarily suffering with aches and pains that you consider "normal." And while some aches and pains might be common... they are definitely not normal.
I have devoted my career to helping families.
It is such an amazing feeling when a mom tells me, "I feel better now than I did even BEFORE my pregnancy!" And I will tell you, this is more common than not.
While every woman has her own unique experience, this should be a time you are able to enjoy and remember with happiness.
If you are suffering, please take this opportunity! Allow yourself to ENJOY YOUR PREGNANCY. Come discover the difference of specialized prenatal chiropractic care at Iowa Family Chiropractic.
