Chiropractic Care for fertility, pregnancy and babies!

Growing up, I only heard of the chiropractor for “back problems.” Well, Raye the doula is here now & I’m here to tell you that it’s for far more than your back…and it’s NOT this “loud, back cracking & snapping” procedure I’d thought of. Adjustments are pain free and gentle enough for a newborn! Chiropractic care is beneficial for ALL folks, but especially those trying to conceive, pregnant or babies! Let me tell you how…

Chiropractors use the art and science of adjusting misaligned joints (subluxations) of the body (especially of the spine) which reduces spinal nerve stress and therefore promotes health throughout the body.

When you look at this chart, you can see that the area in which you have subluxations most likely correlates with the physical symptoms that you  have.

As you can see, your reproductive system (both male and female) is directly correlated with the lower spine. If you are trying to conceive it’s important that you and your partner both be at your best health! By getting chiropractic care, this will help you get there.

But, it doesn’t just stop there. When pregnant, chiropractic care has just as many benefits.

I didn’t start getting adjusted until my third trimester with my first pregnancy. I will never wait that long again! (We get adjustments weekly, but should we stop- I’m going back as soon as I get a positive pregnancy test!) Knowing what I know now, and my experience- the key to a smoother pregnancy is in your spine. A lot of us have been fooled into thinking that we HAVE to suffer from a terrible experience being pregnant.. this isn’t the case! Yes, it can be a trying time-but a lot of the aches(in my pelvis,) pains (like sciatica nerve pain) and symptoms (acid reflux, nonstop nausea) disappears once I started getting adjusted! I was so amazed. I went from complaining that I “felt like my baby was out of room!” to being very comfortable pregnant. Getting my pelvis aligned and open allowed me to enjoy my third trimester more than any other-which most people complain about it being the worst!

Quote from the American pregnancy association: “Establishing pelvic balance and alignment is another reason to obtain chiropractic care during pregnancy.

When the pelvis is misaligned it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. This restriction is called intrauterine constraint.

A misaligned pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery.”

Women who receive regular chiropractic care experience lower labor pains and decrease labor times! Chiropractic care has also been known to help breech babies get into proper positioning. I recommend ALL of my doula clients (fertility and birth) to begin care as soon as possible.

Because I was already receiving care during my pregnancy, my newborn was included in the care plan once he was Earthside. Traveling through the birth canal,  and the labor and delivery can sometimes cause misalignments in newborns. These misalignments may show up in symptoms like “colic,” reflux, allergies, frequent ear infections, poor sleeping and even trouble nursing. By getting your babies adjusted, you give them an instant boost to their immune system and health! My son now hops right up on the table for his weekly adjustments. I’ll do a separate post on the changes I’ve seen in my son after an adjustment. It’s mind blowing how well they do the body!!

Here’s a video if you’d like to see exactly what happens as he gets adjusted! (Link this to video https://youtu.be/BepG1TkWNKA)

Working with Raye is a dream!!! She was extremely responsive and helpful. On one of my strands the sizing was a little off. I was able to send it back and she got me right. I absolutely love her as a person and as an entrepreneur! She is definitely on my short list for doulas as well. She’s amazing and definitely is mastering all her crafts.

What can I really say about this woman right here? She is my shero, my personal nurse lol. When I was battling with infertility she was right alongside  of me helping me to fight and to not give up hope. She encourages me , prayed for me and helped me to loose weight and get healthy for my miracle that we knew was coming.  Almost two years later here I am with my miracle baby . Although it’s been rough with so many scares in the beginning , she’s still alongside of me coaching me and helping me through my fears . I love this woman !. -Jasmine

After years of receiving defeating news of miscarriage coupled with countless negative pregnancy test, as well as medical providers doubting my chances of pregnancy with a history of pcos, my blessing was planted in my womb.  When we found out I was pregnant (and taking a test 10 times due to disbelief) it was very important for us to have support. Raven communicated with me during times of infertility, provided resources and suggestions so I just knew I wanted her to be my doula after receiving news we were officially pregnant. When Raye initially mentioned she may not be able to commit due to other obligations and I was so devastated. Inevitably, I contracted with another doula and terminated that contract as soon as I discovered Raye was accepting doula clients. During my initial consultation call with Raven I immediately recognized the switch was the best thing to do for ME.   From prenatal visit to labor and delivery, my entire birth process seemed so personalized. I appreciated that Raven frequently helped me normalize  my concerns and feelings while discouraging all negative thoughts on pregnancy.  During labor, Raye not only supported me but also my husband. She was able to take over and allowed him to rest which he is still appreciative of. Her counter pressure techniques really helped me deal with contractions as they were getting more intense. Now that I have transitioned to post partum, Raye continues to provide support and check ins. It truly takes a village & I am grateful to have had Raven as my doula, and support.

Raven was amazing, she helped me with my cyst and bacteria infection. She knew EXACTLY what I needed to address each issue. She made sure I had everything I needed. Even when I arrived at the store, I called her to make sure I had the correct items... she answered right away and clarified that I had everything. She checked on me every few days to make sure my issues was getting taking care of. I highly recommend a session with Raven for any holistic womb care, health, holistic medicine, etc. thank you Raven so much! Love you

Raye the doula was everything I needed this first time around breastfeeding. I’m a mom of 3, ages 3,2, and now a 9 week old baby boy. I didn’t get the opportunity to have such an empowering, and proactive lactation specialist with my first two. I have inverted nipples but now they both are completely pulled out. The techniques she gave and advice are exactly what I needed. Before, I started using her- in my 1st week postpartum, I got mastitis, I had a fever and more... Raye provided that’s when I was able to get some good advice and support about relieving the clogged milk ducts and gave me help positioning to make breastfeeding easier. Once you get that infection, you feel horrible, but she helped make the experience as comfortable as possible. Don’t miss out of booking her, even if you may not have any problems with breastfeeding like I did. As a postpartum mom, you always need someone in your corner to assist and be there for you. Get a team and on your team have her, Raye the doula. Larisa Cleaves, Mom of 3, Wife, Business Owner
