Watson Chiropractic - New Mother / New Baby Care

More about us
Postpartum Care

Just as chiropractic care will help your body adapt to the changes of pregnancy, so will it assist your body in recovering from those changes during the postpartum period.  Just because your pregnancy is over doesn’t mean your body will automatically bounce back to its pre-pregnancy state.  Your body has produced a hormone called relaxin to soften your ligaments and open your joints. Your pelvis is then able to open wide and birth your baby. This softness allows your joints to become misaligned more easily.  Continuing chiropractic care after pregnancy will help your body re-align, ease back into your “new normal,” and adapt to the new challenges motherhood brings.

Newborn care

Physical stressors can impact an infant’s body before and during birth.  If the mother’s pelvis is uneven, this can impact the position of the womb and ultimately the growing baby’s ability to move freely within.  The birth process itself can create tension in the baby’s spine, skull, and nervous system.  That’s why Dr. Sarah recommends a well-baby visit post-birth.  When the nervous system is functioning below optimum, it has the potential to affect the body and may impact all aspects of health, including baby’s capacity to sleep, breastfeed, and digest milk.  Dr. Sarah has completed 200+ hours of post-graduate coursework for pediatric chiropractic care and she tailors the adjustments to the child’s size and age.

Samantha Trosky, Reiki Master and Chios Energy Master

Sam’s son, Andrew, was her biggest inspiration for becoming an energy healer. Andrew has high-functioning Autism, ADHD, mood disorders, behaviorial disorders, and a rare seizure disorder that can cause memory loss for hours or even days. Sam met healers from the Chios Energy Healing School in Chicago while looking for alternative treatment options, and after Andrew’s first Chios session he was drastically calmer and more well-behaved. It was this positive change in her son’s health that inspired Sam to learn Chios Energy Healing so that she could help more children like her son, and soon after added Reiki to her healing skills.
