Pregnancy sometimes comes with aches and pains. Wouldn’t it be great if there were a natural method of reducing some of these pains? There is!! Chiropractic care in pregnancy can help keep your body balanced and your ligaments optimal. Chiropractic care allows optimal alignment for birth and is an all natural and hands on approach.
Hampton Roads has a great resource for chiropractic care, Dr. Schwab. She is highly experienced in working with pregnant women, and she looks forward to helping you enjoy the healthiest pregnancy possible. Dr. Schwab is also certified in the Webster Technique, which is helpful for many pregnant women.
Dr. Schwab went to Life University in Marietta Georgia. She is also currently working with ICPA on her diplomat degree.
According the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association), women that receive regular chiropractic care typically see the following benefits:
· 39% reduction in labor times during 2nd/3rd pregnancies
· 50% reduction in the need for analgesics during labor
· 84% of women report relief of back pain
· The sacroiliac joints will maintain better function which means less back labor
· Faster posture healing postpartum
· Decreased risk of postpartum depression
A typical appointment consists of going over your health history and talking about anything specific that may be bothering you. She then gently looks you over to see where any misalignment might be. This all takes about 30 minutes as she is very thorough.
Since I have been under the care of Dr. Schwab I have felt very well looked after. She also takes care of my children and my kids have come to love visiting Dr. Scwab. As a doula, I also had a relationship with a chiropractor in Montgomery Alabama at Pickett Family Chiropractor and I have seen first hand the benefits of chiropractic care in pregnancy. Often I would hear from my clients that they wish they had gone sooner.
