Pregnancy improvements!

We have found that most expectant moms, will experience some level of back pain during your pregnancy; that is likely how you found us.  So naturally, it makes sense that women turn to us when they are experiencing headaches, hip pain, or sciatica.  Unfortunately, too many women accept other health challenges as normal during their pregnancy, but are not finding the answers they are looking for. Nausea, heartburn, fatigue, and discomfort, don’t have to be part of your pregnancy journey. You may not be aware of the other benefits of chiropractic care that we believe all women including yourself would love to experience:

 

  • Improved Sleep
  • Improved immune and digestion
  • Decreased Anxiety
  • Decreased labor pain
  • Decreased labor times
  • Improved recovery from labor and delivery

 

 Most expecting moms don’t realize that chiropractic care helps them stay as healthy as possible throughout their pregnancy and is not limited for back pain and...

5 Qualities of Your Best Birth Team

birth pregnancy Mar 30, 2019

Selecting the right birth team is important to ensure that you have the support and encouragement you need to achieve your ideal birth.  When you take the wheel of your own birth journey, you empower yourself to experience the pregnancy and delivery that is right for you.  But how do you know how to pick the right team? I could really take the easy way out and just give you a list of providers that offer birth support such as: a midwife, doula, chiropractor, birthing classes, massage therapist, nutritionist, prenatal yoga instructor, lactation consultant, and the list goes on.  You could use every type of provider on that list but still be looking for more. Therefore, when choosing the right birthing team, you not only need to find the right birth workers, but the right people! What do I mean by the right people? When I was thinking about this, I asked myself what do I look for in my trusted healthcare providers, and I came up with a list of 5 important qualities that...

I CAN DO THIS

The moment I saw the positive result on a pregnancy test strip, my heart skipped a million beats. The moment we had been waiting for, for quite some time, had actually happened. At that very moment, I couldn’t think of anything else besides “Holy crap, I’m going to be a mom!”. Completely elated with joy and disbelief, I took about 12 more pregnancy tests, that week, just to make sure. I wasn’t a girl who dreamt of having babies. Not that I didn’t want them, I just didn’t even think about it. I thought it might happen one day, and when it does, I’ll figure it out then. I mean, so many people have done it before me and my friends have done it, so clearly I can do it. Then after a while, reality set in, “I’m growing a baby and somehow that baby has to come out of my body!” Truthfully that scared me. As a first time mom, I had NO IDEA what that was going to be like, or feel like; physically or emotionally, and the...

Prenatal Chiropractic

In today’s fast paced highly technical world, the journey of pregnancy has become a mixed bag of emotions for women.  With all of the doctor appointments and “routine” tests, it leaves many women feeling overwhelmed and fearful for the journey ahead. These feelings were very apparent during a recent  casual conversation with a friend whom I hadn't seen in a couple of years, and the conversation gradually shifted over to the fact that she was expecting her first baby in just under four months.  I generally have these types of conversations quite often with women, because prenatal chiropractic has been my focus for nearly ten years.  This conversation was no different from many of the others, but something she said really struck me: We were discussing who her birth provider was and where she was delivering, when she casually hinted that she wasn't really happy with her current doctor.  Her description of their relationship was, “I feel...

Empowered Birth

If you are anything like me, from the time you were little you played house, played with babies and instinctively played mom. God blessed us with an innate drive to care for and nurture those that need help so we can practice our mothering skills as we grow up. Somewhere along the way movies with screaming women, tv shows with women shrieking in agony and implications surround our young girls that childbirth cannot be done without intervention, a massive team of doctors, and enough medication to knock us out because childbirth is only meant to survive. What if you were meant to dominate childbirth?

During a two day labor where our dear friend’s doula was out of town, I stepped in as a back up and I spent a lot of time in the labor and delivery waiting room. I saw many women arriving in wheel chairs and sobbing. Not sobbing because they were about to meet this amazing little being they have spent 10 months growing and loving but because they were scared out of their minds....

It Takes Courage to Make Choices for Your Birth

"If I don't know my options, I don't have any." -Diana Korte

A Voice. Confidence. Support.
 
 
They showed me that I am able to question how I wanted both my pregnancies and labor/delivery to go. I always thought birth and labor was just going with the flow or what “everybody else” does.
 
The courage it takes to make choices for your pregnancy story or for your baby is very intimidating, and it is so amazing to have a tribe surround you, back you up and lift you up when you feel confused or vulnerable.
 
PWC and all the doctors guided me when I needed help, always making my family and I feel valued and loved!
 
I want every woman to feel valued and guided in her choices when it comes to welcoming a new life into this world. During every visit to PWC, I want each family to be able to create their OWN story, not have to just follow somebody else’s! Knowing what I gained during my pregnancy and birth...
