Experienced moms know: pregnancy is stressful on the body, physically and emotionally. Our mission is to provide mom with exceptional care throughout her entire pregnancy so she can enjoy each day leading up to meeting her new little one.
Chiropractic care is safe for both women and babies during pregnancy. The doctors at IFC 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.
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 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.
