Planning Prenatal Care
When you are planning on expanding your family, one of the best things you can do is get as healthy as you can. We all know to eat healthy, drink plenty of water, get good exercise and sleep, and stop any unhealthy habits.
At Mulhall Family Chiropractic, it is Dr. Geraldine’s passion to make sure your body is able to function as effectively as it can, so you increase your chances of conceiving and having a strong, happy and healthy pregnancy and baby!
Correcting any problems before they interfere with your ability to get pregnant is the best way to start your baby off on the right foot. Many of the practice members that have come to me when they were pregnant and having major symptoms also told me that they knew about a pre-existing injury/symptom before they conceived. It only became intolerable during their pregnancy. Others, who decided to find out if they had any imbalances and get them corrected before conceiving, had a much easier time getting and staying pregnant.
Planning and preparing your body for this journey should start one year before your actual, “we’re working on conceiving” happens. This means starting a very good prenatal vitamin routine (not all vitamins are equal!) one year before you actually plan to try for conception. Did you know that it takes 90 days for an egg to develop before it is released for possible fertilization? Everything you do for that last 90 days before conception can mean the difference between a healthy baby and one with some sort of challenge.
