Mommas and Babies


 
Nothing beats the moment when a momma meets her baby!
They say that all the pain, discomfort, and tears are worth that one moment! And they are so right… BUT you have to get there first! And until that moment happens, it is just weight gain, discomfort, weird mood swings, uncontrollable bladders, and bloating in all the wrong places! Don’t get me wrong, there are momma-to-be’s out there that look and feel AMAZING! These lucky momma’s gain in all the right places, never hurt, hair and makeup is on point (all day, every day), never bloat (seriously?), and have the pain-free, 10-minute push labors; while us “other” pregnant momma’s get to enjoy all the realistic woes of pregnancy! So ladies, we are here for you and for all of what your pregnancy may put you through!

Typical Aches and Pains for Momma-To-Be

Each pregnancy is different, but in a lot of ways they are all the same! The one thing no MTB can escape is the pregnancy hormone called Relaxin. This hormone “relaxes” the ligaments and tendons in the pelvic area to allow the hips to spread for birth of that precious baby! This hormone is kinda important or else we would all be opting for a C-section! As necessary as it may be, relaxing your hips complicate the stability of your body. Everything is built and stabilized by the pelvis, which means everything starts to move when it shouldn’t. This laxity causes issues like…
 
  • Sciatica
  • Pinched Nerve
 
  • Bulging/Herniated Disc
  • Lymphedema
 
  • Low Back Pain
  • Hip and Leg Cramps
 
Just to name a few! Corrective Therapy can help stabilize certain structures to eliminate your pain and allow you to enjoy the days leading up to labor!
 
 

Complications That We Can Un-Complicate!

Pregnancy is scary as it is, and sometimes other people’s opinions can make it that much worse! “Watch your foods”, “don’t do this”, “do more of that”… you would think they’d have a bubble ready for your 9 month journey filled with all the right foods, tools, and accessories while protecting you from the rest of the world! But some things you can’t escape, like a breached baby. Yes, it can be scary but there are easy techniques that are both safe and painless for mom and baby that we can perform! We have over 300 breach babes successfully turned under our belts and we are still counting! Ask questions and know your options!
