As most people are aware, after conception a mother’s body begins to change. Hormones begin the task of preparing the environment in which the baby will grow and develop. It is important to make sure the environment is the healthiest and most nurturing it can be. Nutrition is important so too is how the mother is feeling physically, mentally and emotionally.


Often as the baby begins to grow and the term is moving towards the nine month mark the mother’s body struggles with the weight of the baby. The low back can feel the strain of the extra weight pulling the lumbar spine forward. Sometimes due to the extra weight and the softening of the ligaments the mother experiences pain and discomfort. During these trying times minimising discomfort is a good preparation for the upcoming birth process.

I have been fortunate enough to treatment many mothers over the years. Some attend my clinic for the full term of their pregnancy others come looking for relief from pain. Then after the joyful event is over they bring their babies to me.  It is a good idea also for mothers to have chiropractic care after giving birth.

Many times during an initial consultation a mother has said either, “I never had back pain until I became pregnant.” or ” …until I gave birth.” This can be 10, 20, 30 years later. If only they had the opportunity to have treatment at the time then years of pain could be avoided.

Molly P testimonial paul Parolin Chiropractor Harmony-Chirocranial ClinicAfter a difficult birth, Molly first saw Paul at eight days old. Initially Molly visited Paul once a week but now receives treatment once every four weeks. The session is worked around her needs, often Paul treats her whilst she is playing or watching nursery rhymes.
Having experienced the benefits of craniosacral and chiropractic treatment I felt it would also be advantageous for Molly.
She is a happy, contented child who has never suffered from colic and has slept through the night since she was twelve weeks old.
