Dr. Christina understands the profound impact chiropractic adjustments have during pregnancy when the body is changing daily. She is a Webster Certified, maternity care chiropractor which means she has taken advanced education on working with maternity patients.

You might have noticed that chiropractic care is becoming an important part of birth preparation for many pregnant women these days. These women are realizing the benefits of regular chiropractic adjustments as they prepare for safer, easier birthing for both themselves and their babies. Chiropractors have actually cared for pregnant women for many years. Recently, however, with the increased interest in natural birthing, and in an effort to avoid having c-section, a growing number of mothers have incorporated chiropractic into their prenatal care.

For Baby: Regular adjustments during pregnancy increase the likelihood the baby will be in proper head down position for birth and reduces in-utero constraints during development.
For Mom: Experience less aches and pains often associated with pregnancy which keeps you active and recover quicker after delivery.
