Pregnant women are our passion! At The Healing Room Chiropractic we care for women through all phases of pregnancy. Dr. Carolin is uniquely qualified to care for women from pre-conception through the postpartum period. Most women come to our office to make their pregnancies more comfortable, achieve balance in their spines and pelvis, and improve their labor experience and outcome. A healthy nervous system will respond more accurately to the changing requirements in all parts of a pregnant woman’s body. Some of the benefits of Dr. Carolin’s chiropractic care before, during and after pregnancy include:

  • Aid in the treatment of infertility and PMS
  • Improved functioning of the nervous system which helps both the mother and the developing fetus
  • Relieving of physical discomforts during pregnancy, such as neck, back and joint pain
  • Optimal fetal positioning and growth (Dr. Carolin has received advanced training and is certified in the Webster and Bagnell techniques)
  • Shortening of labor duration and intensity

Dr. Carolin will also attend births as part of an integrated support team and is available to care for the newborn immediately after the birth to optimize the newborn’s nervous system and adjustment into life. (She can be available to come to the place of birth for this care.)

When I became pregnant with my third baby, I immediately called on Dr. Carolin. After two unwanted c-sections following long labors during which I knew my babies weren’t positioned correctly, I was determined to succeed with a VBAC. Dr. Carolin gave me my first adjustment at 4 weeks, and we continued throughout the pregnancy. I couldn’t believe the difference in my body this time. Even with prior prenatal chiropractic, I’d suffered intense sciatic pain, neck pain, stiff joints, and poorly positioned babies. Under Dr. Carolin’s care, my third pregnancy was by far my best, with no sciatic pain, great energy, no swelling, and almost no aches. I also experienced a new sensation – a baby constantly sitting on my bladder! I took that as a good sign, and it was. Two days after her due date, I VBAC’d my baby in my bathtub. It was amazing, and I give substantial credit to my wonderful chiropractor. Not only is she skilled at what she does, she is an incredible person who truly cares about her patients and goes beyond the call of duty to offer support, encouragement, and guidance. I can’t say enough good things about her and everything she does, caring for both spines and hearts.
