The 4th Trimester and Chiropractic Care

The 4th trimester is a phrase used for the postpartum period until your baby is about three months old. This is a time where mamas are getting used to being new moms and getting into the groove of having a new life that depends on them every minute of the day. With all of this excitement of welcoming a new life can also come some hard times of stress, little sleep and new pains.

The demands of your body have now changed from feeding and nurturing the baby in utero to now carrying and caring for this baby in the real world which can put a lot of stress on the body. You can thank your body for the hormone Relaxin as it helps most mamas have a relaxed pelvis and cervix during birth but this hormone is rolling through the body till about six months postpartum so this helps your body heal from the experience of child birth. Chiropractic care during this period helps get your body in a better position for healing as well.

Breastfeeding and caring for a new baby can be difficult on your body. If you are nursing your baby, your body has to not only hold the baby up and use muscles in your arms that you might not have ever known were there but you also change the way you sit while nursing. Moms have a tendency to slouch forward to help get a clear view of their baby and the most important thing is to be comfortable with your baby so there is no need to focus solely on your posture but to be aware of it after breastfeeding so we can help stabilize those back muscle so we don’t cause tension in the neck, shoulders, and back.

Chiropractic care postpartum has been proven to increase milk supply of new moms, help balance hormone levels, increase energy, decrease stress, lower anxiety, improve sleep and help support the central nervous system. With these benefits, it is no wonder why so many mamas seek chiropractic care after labor and delivery to allow their bodies to heal properly.

Bottom line is parenting can place a physical and emotional demand on your body and you have providers at Van Ness Chiropractic waiting to help you get through this 4th trimester. It is never too late to start care. We are here to support all of our patients through the many phases of life.
