Move By Design: Healthier Pregnancy and Postpartum

Pregnancy and Postpartum

At Beverly Family Chiropractic, we believe every human being is designed to be extraordinary. Living a life filled with purpose and excitement, as well as feeling alive and healthy, is not an exception to the rule – it’s what we consider a normal life. Since our office is filled with women who are pregnant and postpartum, we have teamed up with Kathryn Leibfried to teach Move By Design: Healthier Pregnancy and Postpartum. The purpose of this seminar is to educate women about healthy movement patterns before and after pregnancy. 

The mission of our ongoing seminar series called Life By Design aims to teach people how to create an extraordinary life by teaching them the core requirements, Eat, Move, Think, and Power, to live a Life By Design. With these principles people can experience more energy, better sleep, clearer thinking, and a stronger immune system.

Chiropractic and Pregnancy

Consulting a chiropractor during pregnancy is very common? About 1 in 6 moms consult one. There are a wide variety of reasons why a pregnant mom sees a chiropractor:

  • Reduces the rates of cesarean
  • Helps to properly align the pelvis for the birthing process
  • Reduces the need for extraction
  • Optimizes the baby’s position in the womb for more room to grow
  • Controls symptoms of nausea
  • Reduces stress on mom’s vital organs
  • Increases baby’s health and well-being
  • Makes pregnancy a much more comfortable experience

At Beverly Family Chiropractic, we use an approach that focuses on core problems with the spine and nerve system affecting people and their baby’s health in ways they may feel, but more importantly in ways they may have no idea about.

When most people think about chiropractic care they think about headache and back pain relief. But research shows that, among other things, chiropractic care impacts the pelvic floor muscles.  

Pregnant women who receive chiropractic care have a greater ability to relax their pelvic floor muscles, therefore enhancing the chances of having a natural, complication free childbirth. Better for both mom and baby.

Family Wellness

BUT, we recognize that the care we provide to pregnant moms is NOT ONLY a success strategy for pregnancy but also recovery and continued good health for a lifetime.

And this affects the very well-being of the entire family.  Labor isn’t just tough on Mom; it’s also a physically and mentally tough process for babies.

That’s why that when parents find out that most of our problems as adults, learning to walk, the falls we took, the sports we played, even the birth process itself, they want to get their kids checked right away. 

Our Doctors have completed post-graduate training in pediatrics and the Webster Technique for pregnancy. Pediatric chiropractic is truly a life-changing healthy strategy for optimum health and wellness.

And we are passionate about the kids and families we help to live extraordinary lives here at Beverly Family Chiropractic.

Healthier Movement During Pregnancy and Postpartum

Movement throughout pregnancy and birth is essential for mom and baby!

Most women just don’t know what that looks like. In this seminar, learn what movement through pregnancy should look like; as well as the right type of movement that can aid in the postpartum healing process – both physically and mentally.
