Pregnancy is a difficult time in a new mother’s life; not just because you are growing and supporting a new life, but because your body is continually changing and adapting to the demands of the life growing inside of you. Even at the moment that you conceive, chemical changes begin to occur that prepare your body for birthing and supporting your child.
Common symptoms throughout these 9 months include:
- Aches and pains
- Headaches and bloating
- Carpal tunnel
Your options are very limited for relief, as taking medicine, even over the counter pain relievers, may be harmful to your child. Chiropractic care is extremely safe and gentle, and is recommended by the American Pregnancy Association.
