You’re expecting a baby but you didn’t expect all the hip and joint pain. Or the mood swings. Or the tiredness that just won’t quit because you haven’t slept in weeks. Not to mention that stabbing feeling you-know-where. We are mothers too. We understand the many discomforts of pregnancy and we can help you feel better.
Whether this is your first child or the one of many, we work to prepare your body for a shorter, easier labour without interventions. We’ll level and align your pelvis, release tension and stiff muscles, ease any of your anxiety or concerns, and provide moral and emotional support before the big day.
Sometimes babies find themselves in a position that’s not conducive to an easy birth. The good news is breech, transverse, or posterior babies can usually be moved around with a gentle chiropractic approach, eliminating the need for an invasive procedure or a C-section. Turn, baby, turn.
If you’re 36 weeks along or more, please call us directly and we’ll make sure to fit you in.Book an Appointment
Congratulations, you had a baby! While becoming a mother has been an incredible experience, once the euphoria of the birth wears off, you begin to realize what a toll the pregnancy has taken on your body. That’s okay. We get it. We’ve been there. And we can help.
Your body is an amazing thing, especially in its ability to recover. Often, all it needs is the right kind of convincing. Postpartum chiropractic treatments can help alleviate the pain of childbirth and everything that comes after that. We can help you get your deep core muscles back, close your diastasis, work on your pelvic floor and encourage long-term wellness using your body’s natural mechanics.Tell Me More
Easing your pain is always our top priority. Diastasis (or the separation of the abdominal muscles) is a common postpartum complaint as are what we call the “breastfeeding hunchback” and low back pain from lack of exercise and core strength. Motherhood can make you feel all the feelings; we can help alleviate the pain and increase the joy.
About a month and a half after having a new baby, you’ll have begun to adjust to your new normal. This is the perfect time to start thinking about recovering your pre-pregnancy core strength and overall vitality, as well as address those pesky issues like bladder control when you sneeze.
Motherhood is an extended journey and so is our definition of postpartum complaints. Once you have had a baby, you are always postpartum. We help mothers of all ages regain their strength and flexibility, improve their posture from breastfeeding and child carrying, and their increase their overall wellbeing. Whether your child is 1 or 31, we can help.
Words can't express how truly amazing Dr. Sarah is! Because of her I had a seamless and easy pregnancy. Not only did she ease any pain I had but she also worked with me to help with the anxiety I had about giving birth. Dr. Sarah helped me so much during my pregnancy, and now that my baby has been born, I'm working with her to help restore my core so that I can feel my best and be as athletic as I used to be.
I met Dr. Sarah when I was 40 weeks in my third pregnancy. I had needed a C-section with my second and was induced 3 weeks overdue with my first, so I did not hold out much hope that I could go into labour naturally with my third. Dr. Sarah kept my spirits up and convinced me that with the right adjustments, I would go into labour naturally. She was right; six days after my first appointment with her, I went into labour spontaneously, and with no need for pain relief or labour augmentation.
Seeing Dr. Sarah for regular chiropractic care was one of the best decisions I made during my pregnancy. Not only did her treatments completely diminish my sciatic and sacroiliac pain, but they contributed to turning my baby from a transverse to head-down position ensuring that I could avoid unnecessary medical interventions and await spontaneous and natural labour. She constantly offered me invaluable insight, tips and resources about labour, breastfeeding and more. I always look forward to seeing Dr. S., not only for her expertise, but her warmth, energy and sense of humour.
My midwife recommended Dr. Sarah to me at 37 weeks pregnant with my second baby for labour prep, and I’m so glad I made the time to go see her! She was warm and welcoming, and best of all her sessions really eased my lower back pain. My only regret is that I didn’t go see her sooner in my pregnancy! I feel like my appointments with her made a huge difference for my labour. My first pregnancy resulted in a long 3-day labour, but thanks to Dr. Sarah, this time I had a smooth and short 3-hour labour with no need for pain medication.
I was referred to Dr. Sarah when I was 37 week pregnant with my first baby. I had a breech positioned baby and was also experiencing low back pain and some tightness in my hips. The gentle adjustments relieved the pressure and felt great. Dr. Sarah also did soft-tissue work, all with the intent of giving my pelvis good mechanics so that my baby would turn. I’m so happy and proud to report that my baby turned into the head-down position on my third treatment with Dr. Sarah, and a few weeks later arrived healthy and naturally without any medication and in just 5 hours. I believe I owe it all to the excellent chiropractic care I received.
