Dr Brad Ivanchuk here and I am a Burlington chiropractor and Certified Posture Expert at Life Chiropractic Centre on Guelph Line.
Over the past couple of weeks I have shared some really, really good information with you regarding pregnancy and chiropractic care.
Remember that the mother’s postural presentation during pregnancy, pre-labor and labor as well as lifestyle choices have a significant impact on three things; length of labor, ease of delivery and degree of potential birth trauma to both mother and baby.
Preparation for labor is greatly enhanced by sitting and standing and squatting with perfect posture in posture quadrant #3 which is your lower back and pelvis. This is why your chiropractic care is so very, very important because nothing else can help you maintain good posture.
Good alignment here will also allow your core muscles to hold your stomach in and support your baby from below like a hammock.
And post-partum chiropractic care is also a must so that your pelvis closes up with proper alignment and your core muscles regain their proper strength and proper tone.
So in conclusion, when you are searching for a chiropractor for pregnancy care make sure that they have experience dealing with pregnant moms.
And you will rarely go wrong if you seek out a principled chiropractor. They should also have adjusting techniques and adjusting tables that will avoid un-needed pressure on your abdomen.
And they should also be able to turn a breech baby just in case.
I do by the way, meet all of these criteria.
If you have any questions on this topic or any other health concerns you may have or your kids may have, please call me right away.

Next time we are going to have a really good review on backpack safety for kids because improper use of backpacks is one of the major causes of postural collapse in kids.
So please do not miss if you have school-aged children.
Always remember this …. Good posture is always by design and never by circumstance.
