Prenatal Care

Chiropractic Care

Our chiropractors will take you through a comprehensive assessment, provide a thorough and clear explanation of the cause of your condition, and start you on a treatment plan tailored to your needs. Our Chiropractors have helped hundreds of people from their first trimester to their fourth (post-baby).  

People choose Chiropractic care during pregnancy for 4 reasons:

  • Webster Technique: gentle chiropractic technique to help with pelvic alignment
  • Round ligament pain
  • Low back pain or sciatica
  • Headaches.

Massage Therapy

We love working with our prenatal patients at the clinic because we become part of their journey. Whether it’s the 1st baby or 3rd, each experience is different, and we learn so much.

Benefits of Prenatal Massage During your 1st, 2nd, 3rd Trimester:

  • Increases circulation
  • Assists in fetal development by supporting the body’s circulation
  • Decreases swelling in the limbs
  • Decreases Pain.

Acupuncture & TCM

Why would I use acupuncture to prepare for my labour?
We have found that Acupuncture reduces the average time of labour, eases discomfort, and reduces anxiety about upcoming labour or delivery.

Acupuncture can help:

  • To reduce anxiety
  • To help you sleep better
  • To prevent constipation and bloating
  • To manage common pregnancy symptoms like back pain, hip
  • To optimally position the baby especially if the baby is in a breech position
  • Pain, headaches, stress, pelvic pain, sciatica
  • To manage nausea and vomiting
  • To manage high blood pressure
  • To prevent miscarriage
  • To increase energy.

Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic Medicine is an integrative healthcare philosophy that recognizes the importance of health during conception, pregnancy, labour and birth.

Reasons why people seek out Naturopathy during pregnancy:

  • To assess your current health status
  • To manage more serious pregnancy complications if they come up
  • To deal with early pregnancy symptoms naturally
  • To know with certainty what natural health products are safe to take while you’re pregnant
  • To get answers to all your questions

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

As the body changes during pregnancy, there is additional impact and pressure on the pelvic floor, leading the muscles to lengthen and work harder, which is what they are meant to do.

Furthermore, seeing a pelvic physiotherapist during pregnancy may help prevent pelvic floor issues prenatally and postpartum. Your physiotherapist may teach you different breathing techniques, perineal massage, and kegels as well. 

During pregnancy, the focus is on:

  • lengthening the muscles to prep for labour and delivery
  • strengthening the core
  • learning how to push
  • and addressing any existing concerns.

Psychology

As a new Mom, many people are filled with anxiety and self-doubt, “will I be good enough?” 

Our Psychologists will walk with you through this new time, guiding you through the 4 top issues during pregnancy:

  • Seeking safe passage for herself and her child through pregnancy, labor, and delivery
  • Ensuring the acceptance of the child she bears by significant persons in her family
  • Binding in to her unknown child, and
  • Learning to give of herself.

Yoga

Prenatal Yoga is our studio specialty. We also love helping to create this vital community as many students go on to create friendships (and play dates) with each other after the birth of their babes.

Prenatal Yoga is impactful in the following ways:

  • Increased energy
  • Strengthens the body in preparation for birth
  • Enhances the mind/body connection and calms the spirit
  • The poses are safe for all trimesters and modifications are offered for injuries
  • Keeps you flexible enough to minimize rib and back pain
  • Empowers moms to have a more conscious labour
  • Quickens postpartum recovery
  • Strengthens birthing muscles
  • Promotes a healthy birth
  • Decreases anxiety.
