The Benefits of Chiropractic During Pregnancy with Dr. Elliott Berlin
Have you ever wondered why some babies are naturally head down at 34 weeks and others are not? Or why some labors progress faster than others? It has a lot to do with what’s going on inside your body! For various reasons, there may be narrowings or imbalances that limit the child’s movements. Today on Yoga Birth | babies we dive into understanding how manual therapy works, how it benefits your baby, pregnancy and your body. And also Webster’s method, what it is and how it can encourage the child to lower his head down. We’ll also talk about how manual therapy can help those planning a VBAC, and we’ll talk about the importance of making informed choices and decisions.
