Guelph Pregnancy Chiropractic Care

Dr. Alyssa adjusting pregnant momWhen you’re pregnant you go through incredible and immense changes as the wisdom and intelligence of your body nurtures the growing life within. The way you feel, eat and move are all factors that contribute to your health and what your baby is learning in utero. The environment in the womb serves as a sort of primer, helping prepare baby for the world he or she will encounter after birth. The uterine environment can be empowering or disempowering, and babies remember their time in utero. Dr. Alyssa has studied the effects of the uterine environment on babies and continues to do so via her studies with the Association for Pre- and Perinatal Psychology and Health (APPPAH). She strives to help ensure you have the care and information you need to enable you to express vibrant health, and to help facilitate a nourishing pregnancy experience for you and your baby.

Your Comfort and Safety

Many moms take advantage of chiropractic care during their pregnancy to assist with alleviating or managing symptoms such as low back pain, pelvic pain and sciatica. What most aren’t aware of are the potential birth-related benefits of being under chiropractic care. While birth can be unpredictable, if your low back and pelvic mechanics are optimized, evidence indicates that you may have an easier, shorter birth with fewer interventions.

Chiropractic is a minimally-invasive, safe way for you to help ensure that you and your baby head into birth with your nervous system supported and optimized. This helps you and baby connect to more optimal and abundant health.

Pregnant women can benefit greatly from use of The Webster Technique. Dr. Alyssa is certified in this technique and regularly uses it with pregnant individuals. This technique involves a specific analysis of the biomechanics of critical structures in your low back and pelvis with either direct or indirect connection to the uterus. Often work to optimize the mechanics of these structures can help facilitate more optimal positioning of baby in the womb.

Dr. Alyssa’s recommendations to you will depend entirely on your case. Your stage of pregnancy, current challenges and history, amongst other factors, will determine your care plan. Dr. Alyssa can provide care from pre-conception all the way to postpartum. The frequency of your visits will be recommended for what is most suitable in your individual situation.

Neuro Emotional Technique

Dr. Alyssa is a certified practitioner of Neuro Emotional Technique (aka NET). Many pregnant individuals can benefit greatly from this method. Since our health involves both mind and body, a technique that works with both aspects – specifically mind-body stressors – can be incredibly beneficial in enhancing enjoyment of your pregnancy experience and preparing for birth.
