Peterborough Prenatal and Pediatric Chiropractic

As a mom to two daughters, Dr. Ange is particularly passionate about helping kids and pregnant women through natural chiropractic care.

Pregnancy Chiropractic

Chiropractic is thought to be safe throughout all stages of pregnancy. It’s ideal to come in for care even before you become pregnant or once you know you are pregnant. It is never too early or too late to start chiropractic care! Dr. Ange has seen cases at the practice where women who have been struggling with fertility become pregnant when their nervous system is in a better state of balance. “I believe chiropractic should be in your preconception toolbox,” she says. When the body is in a fight or flight response getting pregnant is the last thing on it’s mind – it’s too busy just trying to survive!

Dr. Ange uses the very gentle Torque Release Technique—and may use Webster technique depending on the baby’s position in utero. One of the most significant advantages of chiropractic during pregnancy can be shorter, less painful labors and a reduction in the aches and pains that come with a rapidly changing body. Chiropractic care during pregnancy can not only help you feel better it can also help you function better.

To have the best birth outcome, it’s vital to have optimal pelvic positioning and a balanced, regulated nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments help to align the pelvis so baby can transition through the birth canal smoothly and by balancing or regulating the nervous system mom is able to start and finish labour more easily. A mom stuck in fight flight can have more difficulty transitioning through labour as her stress hormones interfere with her birth hormones. The longer the labour the more likely interventions will be needed such as drugs, forceps and ultimately a C-section. The more prepared mom’s body is for labour the less likely the need for intervention will be and the better the birth outcome for baby.

It’s important to remember that what is happening in a mom’s life is affecting what is happening in utero. A mom under stress will transfer that stress to her baby. Being able to support a mom in her pregnancy is going to benefit the baby both before and after birth.

Pediatric Chiropractic

As chiropractic is noninvasive and considered to be safe, kids can receive care within hours of being born. Rest assured that Dr. Ange uses very light force on babies and gentle pressure on children. Her own daughters have been adjusted regularly since birth.

Kids who get checked from a young age may experience better immunity. If they do happen to get sick, they usually don’t stay sick for very long. Children under chiropractic care may experience the following:

  • Better focus and concentration
  • Improved coordination
  • Better digestion and elimination
  • Improved sleep

While chiropractic doesn’t treat these conditions, it could be beneficial for common childhood conditions such as colic, reflux, ear infections, scoliosis, bedwetting and breastfeeding issues such as latching.
