Flourish Family Chiropractic provides the latest in safe and gentle prenatal chiropractic care. Our tables are able to accommodate your pregnant belly all the way up through your due date (even for our moms of multiples). Dr. Dana has been extensively trained in caring for pregnant and postpartum women. She is certified in Prenatal and Pediatric Chiropractic through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), as well as certified in the Webster’s Technique. The Webster’s Technique is a sacral analysis and adjustment technique along with gentle soft tissue work that is specific to pregnant women. The goal of the Webster’s Technique is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/ SI joint dysfunction to improve the neuro-biomechanical function of the pelvis. This technique first gained fame for helping with breech babies, and has a 92% success rate in the baby getting into the normal head down position. Our goal with every pregnant patient is to ensure proper spinal alignment so that mom and baby are able to function properly, and have the best pregnancy, delivery, and birth possible!
Postpartum chiropractic care is an often overlooked part of the recovery process after you have a baby. If you ask a chiropractor whether or not you should get adjusted, the answer will almost always be, “Yes! Of course!” In this case, I think it’s even more important to get adjusted after you have your baby than almost any other time. Postpartum chiropractic care helps to re-align your body so that you can recover and heal and be the best parent possible to your new baby.
