Dr. Mosca is uniquely suited to help you face the various challenges you encounter during pregnancy. Our natural, gentle care can relieve the pains of pregnancy and optimize you and your baby’s health, making sure no misalignments are present in your body.

Why Is Chiropractic Care Important During Pregnancy?

Your body undergoes changes during your pregnancy. As the baby grows, you gain weight and your center of gravity shifts, putting new demands on your body:

  • Fatigue of spinal and pelvic muscles increase, leading to imbalance
  • Increases of the spinal curves
  • Joint misalignments due to increased joint-loading stresses
  • Spinal and pelvic ligaments have increased load

As you near delivery, hormonal changes cause a loosening of the joints and connective tissues, making it essential for your body to be in alignment to prepare for birth. Dr. Mosca is well-versed in the Webster technique which helps ensure that your baby is in the proper position when the time comes.

Get Started!

Infant Adjustment

Dr. Mosca wants you to feel comfortable and understand every step of the way. Watch as she adjusts an infant while explaining to the baby’s mom and aunt the process.

Postpartum Care for You and Baby

You may experience symptoms from the stress and trauma of pregnancy and delivery, such as

  • Hip and leg pain
  • Low back pain
  • Neck and shoulder pain from breast enlargement and breastfeeding

We recommend you bring your newborn in to see Dr. Mosca as soon as possible. Even natural births can be traumatic for the baby’s body, particularly their neck. Our gentle check can make sure that everything is working at its highest levels so that your baby can grow and develop properly.

Protect your family’s health. Contact our office today to schedule your time for natural, safe and effective care!
