Chiropractic Bentonville AR Chiropractic Care For Women Considering A VBAC

Many women feel like they have a perfect birth plan laid out before going into labor. But let’s face it, things don’t always go according to plan. In some situations, birthing interventions such as cesarean sections may be required for the safety of both mother and baby. But turning to birth interventions too early has become an alarming trend. If you have already had a C-section, you may have been told that you will always have to have a C-section for every subsequent birth. Thankfully that is not true. If you want to try for a VBAC, or a vaginal birth after cesarean, chiropractic care from a Bentonville AR chiropractor is a great option that can give women a better chance of achieving that goal.

Birthing Interventions Versus VBACs in Bentonville AR

The birthing process in itself is a miraculous thing. While birthing interventions are not all bad, studies have shown that interventions such as C-sections or the use of forceps or vacuums during delivery can lead to health concerns for babies, both short-term and long-term. The top health concerns that may occur after birth interventions are problems with feeding and jaundice. If a birthing intervention is necessary, then it can be lifesaving, and there’s no downplaying that. But information is power. Many women who are pregnant and about to give birth aren’t as informed about the process and may consent to a C-section soon than needed or purely out of fear. If a baby is born vaginally, the risk of complications, such as lower body temperature, decreases drastically. Know your options, and if you feel like trying for a VBAC is right for you, then explore all avenues, including chiropractic care, to find out how that possibility can become a reality.

The Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Not only is chiropractic care great for your body while you are pregnant and dealing with the aches and pains of carrying around a baby, but it is also important during delivery and after delivery. Whether it’s your first baby and you are trying for a natural vaginal birth or you are looking into a VBAC, chiropractic care helps prepare your body for the best possible birthing experience. For a successful VBAC, it is essential that the pelvis and spine are in proper alignment to allow the baby to move into the proper birthing position.

Many women choose VBACs because of the quicker and easier healing process. After delivery, the body is both preparing to feed your baby and also needing to heal from the birthing experience. Chiropractic care can not only improve your chances of successfully breastfeeding, but it is also great for improving overall health and wellness, including the recovery process. Dr. Tom Niemela will assess the spine and gently and safely perform necessary adjustments to ensure that women can experience a healthier pregnancy, delivery, and recovery.
