Unknown by many, every Redwood City upper cervical chiropractor can help mothers maintain a healthy pregnancy. Babies are precious. The joy and fulfillment they give to their mothers are priceless.

Soon-to-be-moms and mothers would want the best for their baby. Getting the right prenatal care is not only beneficial for the baby, but it also ensures a smooth and healthy delivery.

Here are three essential tips you can implement to help ensure that you and your baby’s health and wellness are in the best possible shape. 

#1 Pregnancy and Nutrition

Eating well with the proper diet is crucial to your baby’s health. There are certain types of food you need to avoid during pregnancy. There are also foods recommended by nutritionists and doctors to give you and your little angel the proper nourishment you both need. Food like fruits and vegetables are best for you. Always be hydrated and take your pregnancy vitamins.

#2 Pregnancy and Hygiene

Maintaining proper health by taking a bath regularly and washing your hands is essential. It helps reduce infections and sickness.

Always wash your hands:

#3 Pregnancy and Proper Care For Your Spine

During pregnancy, your body is going through a lot of hormonal, emotional, and physical changes. Manage your stress healthily. Do not overexert your body as you are in a delicate stage. As the baby grows, your internal organs shift to make room. 

The importance of a healthy and well-aligned spine is highly valuable during pregnancy. If your spine is out of alignment, you may experience some serious issues. An aligned spine also helps keep the birth canal open and ready while delivering the baby.

Safe Care of Your Spine During Pregnancy

Here at the Advanced Spinal Care, a Redwood City upper cervical chiropractor would never do any popping or cracking to your back, spine, or neck to get positive results. Instead, we focus on the top bones of the neck (the upper cervical spine). Upper cervical care is natural, precise, and gentle. We use this method to realign bones if they are misplaced. This procedure is safe for you and the baby. We ensure that your spine, an integral part of the central nervous system is in top shape, to help ensure your safe and healthy pregnancy. Call us at (650) 595-0500 or reach us online.

There are plenty of opinions out there for pregnant women on what they should be eating, whether they should exercise, and what precautions they should be taking to ensure their child is born healthy. It’s important to know that there are certain measures that can help to reduce the likelihood of complications during pregnancy or during the birth itself.

Common advice for expectant mothers is to avoid certain foods, but basic food hygiene is just as necessary when trying to avoid infections. This is why it is essential to wash fruits and vegetables under cold water with antimicrobial soap to lower the chances of food poisoning that could happen as a result of bacteria, toxins, parasites, and some molds. Other sources of food poisoning can happen due to cross contamination of raw and cooked food, so it’s highly recommended to keep food separate and thoroughly clean all your utensils.

Another important factor in keeping your baby safe is personal hygiene practices. Pregnant women are advised to wash their hands often, specifically after person-to-person contact, preparing food, and following other activities that could lead to infections, like gardening or changing diapers.

One area that is often overlooked regarding a woman’s body is the health of her spine. As the fetus grows, the woman’s body must adjust and grow to accommodate the baby’s increasing size. This process requires the organs to move around (and towards the end a bloated feeling and more aches and pains).

The benefits of an upper cervical chiropractor are that they can examine the woman’s upper neck to identify whether there is a misalignment in any of the vertebrae, and their adjustments are gentle, precise and safe for mother and baby. If there is a misalignment in the uppermost bones of the spine, it could interrupt proper brain communication between the brain and the body that occurs through the brainstem, which would lead to aches and pains and other health conditions.

Proper Alignment Throughout Pregnancy Allows for An Easier Birth

By adjusting the top two vertebrae (the C1 and C2 bones) into alignment, the spine is able to move back into the correct position, which also properly aligns the birthing canal, lowering the likelihood of complications during birth. If you are pregnant and would like to ensure that your spine and body are ready for your baby’s arrival, we would be glad to meet with you and tell you more about how we can help you.
