Receiving the Right Pregnancy Care

During your pregnancy you should be taking extra care of your body as it goes through a ton of changes you’ll need to keep up with your health alongside those changes. Working alongside your OBGYN and our physicians we can help you find the best natural ways to soothe your pregnancy term, and make it easier on your soon to be newborn.

Chiropractic Care

Receiving chiropractic care during pregnancy has great benefits for your unborn child. Chiropractic care can help with preventing a breech pregnancy. Aiding in the baby being positioned correctly in the balance will help to grow a healthy spine and alleviate some of the pressures of birth.

Receiving clinical massages can also be very beneficial to the expecting mother with the added weight put on her back, hips, legs and feet, child bearing can be especially stressful on the body. Not forgetting the emotional toll pregnancy can take on the body as well. Receiving clinical massages can alleviate the stress and tension that builds up during pregnancy. Prenatal massages are specialized and are performed laying on the side, or in one of our specialized pregnancy massage beds so you can lay comfortably face down.

Acupuncture Care

Receiving acupuncture during pregnancy can be very beneficial in treating complications during pregnancy that cannot be treated with prescription medications. Acupuncture can provide great pain relief for pregnant women that they would normally not be able to get any other way, and can help to allow the body and mind to work in sync.

Nutritional Care

Eating right is particularly key during pregnancy, understanding which foods to avoid, and which foods can feed your baby rich nutrients. Sometimes pregnancy may require prenatal vitamins to keep high in energy during pregnancy, encourage positive fetal development and healthy postpartum milk production. Our Encino nutritionist can run bloodwork and mineral tests to see what your body is lacking or may require while pregnant.
