Pregnancy and Chiropractic

Since the beginning of the year, I have been working an amazing group of people to open a wellness center that primarily caters to pregnant women and their newborn babies. On February 2, 2015 the Cap Wellness Center opened its doors in Encinitas, CA providing acupuncture, chiropractic, massage, lactation services, yoga and education classes. You can learn more about it here.

If you are not familiar with how chiropractic could help during pregnancy and would like more information about it, this list will help you. I’ve collected 42 articles about how chiropractic care can help pregnancy, breastfeeding, breech positioning, infertility and birth trauma.

I have been adjusting pregnant mothers-to-be and babies for 15 years in my practice and I assure you it is completely safe for mom and baby. Especially since the chiropractic techniques I specialize in are “low-force” or “light-force”, not the typical cracking and popping type of adjustments that most people think of a chiropractor using.

The link below will show you a variety of articles and research studies about the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic care for those that are still unsure about seeing a chiropractor during pregnancy.

I am excited to be a part of the Cap Wellness Center and helping pregnant women be as healthy and well taken care of as possible during this incredible time in their lives. Furthermore, I am excited to be helping them bring their child into this world as naturally and safely as possible so their “little one” can start off their life as healthy and happy as possible.
