Before The Bump
Creating Healthy Environments for Healthy PregnanciesBook your appointment
(or so they say 🙄)
The reality is that 1 in 8 couples have difficulty getting pregnant and/or staying pregnant.
Well...Who is to blame?
It is thought that 1/3 of infertility cases are attributed to the female, 1/3 can be attributed to the male, and then 1/3 is caused by a combination of problems in both partners or, is unexplained.
So where does one even start begin to tackle this?
It may be simpler than you think…
Imagine you were a farmer who was cultivating their land for farming, what would you do?
Prep the soil
You’d want to make certain the soil has an abundance of nutrients and is well fertilized to support a plentiful harvest.
These nutrients serve as the building blocks for high quality crops.
Plant the seeds.
Water the seeds.
Protect the seeds from any toxins or bugs that can interfere with their growth and development.
At the end of this, you have healthy, nutrient dense food.
Because the farmer made sure that they created an optimal environment for the seeds
::Wait for it…(💡)::
Similar to the farmer, we assist you and your partner in creating an optimal internal environment to support a healthy and happy conception and pregnancy.
Wondering what that might look like??
Typically, one would want to start preparing their bodies at least 4 months (approx. 120 days) prior to trying to conceive.
Now you may be asking yourself…why would I choose to go to a chiropractor for preconception and fertility issues? (Good Question)
You’re right, it is not the normally the first thing that crosses the mind of a couple who are attempting to conceive.
But, we know when the spine (specifically the upper cervical spine - occiput, atlas, or axis) or pelvis shifts, even slightly, it compromises the nervous system and contributes to dysfunction through the body. These spinal shifts can often manifest as pain and discomforts, or it can lead to a myriad of collateral damage that disrupts your quality of life in work, home, and play.
Through safe, gentle chiropractic corrections restore normal function in the spine and pelvis, allowing the nervous system to better coordinate and regulate everything in the body thus increasing your potential of conceiving.
