Dr. Gloria is here to support you
as your body goes through one of
its biggest transformations:
creating a new life.
When in balance and open, your nervous system allows your body the ability to optimize the position, growth,
and connection with the newest member of your family.
By ensuring that your pelvis and spine are in proper alignment and motion, chiropractic care helps ensure that your developing baby has plenty of room to grow within your womb. By maintaining this proper alignment and motion throughout your pregnancy, chiropractic care can also improve your ability to have a safe and natural birth process, which is vital to the health of both mom and baby.
Whether you are trying to conceive or are already pregnant, having a neuro-spinal system that is clear and open creates the optimal conditions for a comfortable and healthy pregnancy. Visiting Dr. Gloria regularly during pregnancy can provide:
a more comfortable pregnancy
shorter labor time
an increase in neural communication
more room for baby to grow
improved energy levels
A study by the American Medical Association found that women who visited a prenatal chiropractor and received regular chiropractic care during their third trimester carried and delivered with greater comfort. Another study concluded that with regular chiropractic adjustments:
need for analgesics decreased by half during delivery
relief was provided for intrauterine constraint
average amount of time spent in labor decreased by 24% in first time moms
"Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy removes interference to the mother's nervous system, enhancing baby development and uterine function. It balances her pelvis, eliminating undue tension to muscles and ligaments and enhancing optimal fetal positioning." -Jeanne Ohm, DC
