Does chiropractic care ACTUALLY shorten labor time?
That's a great question! My answer is PROBABLY!
During labor your sacrum, the triangular bone at the base of your spine, needs to be able to rock back when the fetal head is going past it. If it cannot, due to a subluxation in your spine, then the head cannot descend. Which can cause a longer labor. SO if you are regularly adjusted during your pregnancy then your sacrum is less likely to be stuck in a non-moving position. THIS is why I can say that chiropractic care can shorten labor time. Getting regular adjustments throughout your pregnancy is such a wonderful way to reduce discomfort, potentially shorten labor time, and have regular check in points with someone educated in prenatal care to ask your questions.

These prenatal vitamins come in a pack of the prenatal multivitamin and a daily fish oil. They come in individual packets so that you don't have to open a bottle of stinky vitamins when your stomach is doing flip flops. ;)
These are the amazing Fish Oils that we sell in the office. They do NOT have any fishy taste to them. If you bite into the capsule and just swallow the liquid it tastes like a lemony olive oil. GREAT for decreasing inflammation!
