Dr. Jill specializes in chiropractic care for pregnant moms. She believes that women are powerful beyond measure and provides support to moms and their families to have safer, healthier and happier births. As you embark on this new journey to parenthood, chiropractic care can help you maintain your health and vitality during pregnancy.
Having your spine checked by a chiropractor ensures that your pelvis and spine are sitting correctly to allow optimal room for your baby to move and grow. Chiropractic care can also help moms combat many of the hurdles of pregnancy such as heartburn, nausea, shortness of breath and constipation to name a few.
There are a number of studies showing that the correct alignment of the pelvis and spine contributes to a more straightforward labor with LESS pain and trauma for mother and child. Chiropractic care has also been shown to significantly reduce labor time, approximately 24% shorter labor for first time moms and 39% for experienced moms. Show me any mom-to-be who would not be excited about that possibility!

In addition to the physical benefits enjoyed, it was so comforting to have a consistent, weekly check-in throughout the duration of my pregnancy. Dr. Jill's nurturing spirit combined with her extensive understanding of the pregnant body really put this first time momma at ease, both physically and emotionally. I left each session feeling reassured and refreshed, which is more than I can say for most health-related appointments!
