Postpartum Care in Calgary

Chiropractic Calgary AB Postpartum

I always tell my Mama practice members that after giving birth, whether vaginally or via c-section, the alignment, and biomechanics of the pelvis change. Often, these pelvic changes can cause discomfort while walking, sitting (for all those feedings!), and sleeping. In addition, new moms in Calgary struggle with neck, back, arm and/or wrist pain due to the demands of caring for their new baby: these tasks include breast and/or bottle-feeding, pumping, holding baby, rocking baby, carrying the baby (especially in the car seat), and even the prolonged looking down at baby because you just can't stop staring at your little miracle.


Understanding Postpartum Care in Calgary

The postpartum period is another huge shift in hormonal, biomechanical, and neurological function, and I want you to enjoy this time with your baby so you can thrive as a Mama. Too often I hear the following: "I feel like I'm hunched forward and can't straighten up", "The past few weeks have been a blur and I'm not really sure how I've made it through", "I don't want to move once the baby is comfortable, so my body ends up in the most awkward positions", "My emotions are all over the place and I have no control over them", "I know my posture is so bad but I can't seem to correct it".

Your body went through an incredible transformation giving birth to your baby and now, during this time of healing and change, you are expected to keep up with the demands of a new baby. Chiropractic is about structure and function. The Chiropractic adjustments in Calgary not only help you move and function better, but they also speed up your recovery time, assist your body to normalize pelvic and spinal joint function, increase brain function so your body and brain can better communicate, and help correct your posture.

This is why after having your baby, one of your first trips out of the house should be to your chiropractor at Chiropractic Center for Health.

Ideally, I would see you within the first 2 weeks postpartum to help manage and/or prevent the following conditions:

  • Upper and/or Mid-back pain ("between the shoulder blades")
  • Neck pain and/or headaches
  • Wrist and/or elbow pain (think carpal tunnel and tendonitis)
  • Lower back pain (or any tension felt along the spine)
  • Sciatic pain
  • Hip pain

  • Fatigue and/or brain fogginess.
