In this episode, Dr. Kjersten Jones, a certified pediatric chiropractor talks about the role of chiropractic in pregnancy and infancy. During pregnancy, women experience many physical and chemical changes as the fetus develops that can
lead to discomforts which can cause stress to mom growing and baby. Since many pregnant women are cautious about what they put into their bodies to help with the pain, chiropractic offers a safe,
effective, and non-pharmacologic option. Chiropractic adjustments improve biomechanics and the ability to send and receive neurologic messages from the brain. Dr. Jones will be discussing the benefits of chiropractic care for pregnant women and infants, as well as, address why you would bring your baby to a chiropractor. She discusses what to expect during a visit during pregnancy and postpartum, what to look for in a baby that might indicate the need for chiropractic care.
