Meredith Speaks About Chiropractic Care During Her Labor

Meredith, a local midwife, discusses her experience of getting adjusted after contractions had completely slowed down during her labor.

The reason that labor can progress after an adjustment is because the body has an opportunity to reset. Even slight tension through the uterine ligaments, sacrum, pubic bone, and the rest of the spine can cause the contractions to become uncoordinated and eventually plateau.

This is usually when moms fatigue and often leads to interventions such as pitocin, vacuum extraction, and c-sections. These interventions can usually be avoided with the gentlest of touches during an adjustment.

Dr. Kenda attends labors at home and in a hospital setting when needed to help women have a safer and easier labor and birth.

Check out an article about chiropractic and pregnancy:

"Birth is the sudden opening of a window, through which you look out upon a stupendous prospect. For what has happened? A miracle. You have exchanged nothing for the possibility of everything." -William Macneille Dixon
