(with Dr. Cathy Taig, mom) Imagine a balloon suspended in the air. It’s held perfectly in the optimal position by 2 strings attached to the front & 2 attached to the back (all strings are attached to the wall).
What would happen if the strings got all twisted, contorted & some even got tighter than the others? The ballon’s position would shift, rotate & move out of it’s perfect position, right?
Now imagine the balloon is your uterus- your baby’s luxury apartment for close to 10 months. As your baby grows, your body changes. Your posture takes a hit because it’s compensating for your increasing bump & weight. Your back aches, so do your feet. But that’s just on the outside. Inside things are shifting & changing too. The ligaments holding your uterus in place can get out of alignment, resulting in your uterus moving out of the best position for baby. Now baby is all cramped in their apartment with less room to move & getting into the optimal position (called vertex) so they can head out doesn’t happen.
Get the picture?
This is why so many pregnant women (who’ve had pregnancies with & without chiropractic care) swear that chiropractic is super effective throughout pregnancy, labor & birth. When babies have optimal space inside the uterus, they’re able to head down into the right position for birth which often lessens the duration of labor.
Dr. Taig explains how chiropractic care works in detail. She also teaches how common discomforts during pregnancy can be minimized with chiropractic – things like back and joint pain, inflammation, and insomnia. There’s also another huge perk of chiropractic: it boosts your immunity.
