Preparing the Womb for Baby
In practice, we see many women experiencing difficulty with conceiving. Some fertility challenges can be resolved quite easily.
Fertility treatments in a traditional medical practice can be quite costly and still the woman might not conceive.
There is a less expensive approach where we look to understand WHY you are not conceiving rather than just putting hormones in your body that can create other problems.
For instance, many women can't conceive due to chronic stress and their body being in a constant fight or flight state. When you are in this state, your uterus can't receive the proper blood flow in order for you to conceive or have a healthy pregnancy.
Some women have difficulty conceiving or maintaining their pregnancy due to a prior fall on their buttocks. This can cause the sacrum to get "tipped" or interfere with the nerves that leave the sacral or lumbar regions that work with the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries. A few adjustments can allow the nervous system to work better and pregnancy ensues.
Other women might have problems conceiving due to an inefficient microbiome caused by a long history of antibiotic and/or steroid usage. We have a simple test to determine if that is the cause of your infertility. Once we have that answer, then we can guide you in natural methods to restore the proper microbiome.
Taking drugs that might effect your unborn problem should be the last approach.
Dr. Tarlow has seen many women become fertile after not being able to conceive. Many women who previously had cesarean's or had miscarriages now being able to carry their babies to full term... and have a vaginal birth.
Once the pelvis is "open" and the nervous system is functioning well, the body can heal allowing for a healthy pregnancy and safe birth.
Chiropractic & Pregnancy:
Pre- and Post-Natal Needs
Pregnancy - During pregnancy, a women's body experiences a period of rapid changes (shape, hormonal and loose ligaments). As a result, the body becomes stressed. Many women develop upper back pain, lower back pain and sciatica. Chiropractors trained in pre-natal techniques use specific methods geared to the pregnant woman, will allow safe and proper chiropractic treatment up to labor. These techniques can "turn" a posterior baby and keep mom's blood pressure at a safe level.
In a study by JM Daly3, 91% of pregnant women studied reported pain relief as a result of regular chiropractic care during their pregnancy. Through regular chiropractic care during pregnancy, women can benefit from proper nervous and body system function so important to fetus development. Specific chiropractic adjustments are now shown to be preventative measure and treatment for toxemia.
Additionally, pregnant women have specific nutrient requirements to provide for optimal fetal development and to keep the mom healthy. These nutrients can help the woman avoid miscarriages and pre-term labor. Using a customized nutrient plan, it's possible to also help a woman with fertility problems.
