Pregnancy and Chiropractic

By Mel   •   November 22nd, 2021


Pregnancy is one of the most exciting and sometimes challenging times in a woman’s life. As your body strives to create the most perfect environment for your developing baby, there are many physical and hormonal changes that are occurring as a result. A large majority of women will experience low back pain due to these changes and sometimes this can not only negatively impact on your quality of life but also your pregnancy experience. Throughout pregnancy, your nervous system may also be impacted, and this results in less than optimal spinal and pelvic function. It’s important to ...read more

What am I most thankful for during pregnancy and birth?

Shinae pregnancy - What am I most thankful for during pregnancy and birth?

There was many times when I had physical discomfort during pregnancy, interrupting my sleep, movement and therefore affecting where my head was at. I’m sure you can all relate to when you have a back pain or headache and you’re just generally off your game. I’m not very tolerant to not feeling my best. This is because I’ve been well adjusted my whole life and had the luxury of a chiropractor close by who I can pop in and see. I know if I’m well adjusted then I can be my best so when I’m not I know that something is interfering with my nervous system. This could be because I’ve ...read more

Pregnancy Part 5 – Survival Versus Ideal

Pregnancy Part 5 - Survival Versus Ideal

As a chiropractor, I am all about optimizing the health of the human body, creating an ideal environment to develop grow and thrive, whether that’s physically, chemically or emotionally. A few hours after entering the hospital Mr. Dominic was born but in no way even close to my ideal for my health, not to mention birth. This was medical, all about keeping baby Dom alive, needles, drugs, sterile equipment and machines beeping. Nowhere near my plan to bring my baby into the world in a calm, drug free environment where essential oils fill the air and soft music tracks playing in the ...read more

Pregnancy Part 4 – The Miracle of Birth

Pregnancy Part 4 - The Miracle of Birth

I have done everything in my power to prepare, get educated, manifest, meditate and surrender to the universe and its plan. Little did I know I was in for yet another, more advanced test of learning to surrender. This one rocked my positive spirit pretty hard. I take my health very seriously and I know how to maintain good health, which is one beautiful privilege of working in healthcare and wellness. When I found out I was pregnant, I was happy with a calm home birth, there was no need for medical intervention. I am a healthy, young, medically uncomplicated woman. Boring in fact and I was ...read more

Pregnancy Part 3 – The Ultimate Surrender

By Mel   •   December 15th, 2020


People warned me, trimester three will hit you hard, your energy dives, you swell, you ache, and your body can really physically struggle. “Most probably, you will sleep in a recliner towards the end, reflux can get worse, nest early, you’ll be so tired” they all said. For me the physical struggle did come but not even close to how I expected. I was once again blind-sided and one Friday I some how tore my abs, no not a common abdominal separation. A grade two abdominal tear. This definitely took all my strength to yet again surrender to what my body needed. I could barely stand not to ...read more

Pregnancy Part 2

By Mel   •   December 4th, 2020


I had heard there is this sweet spot in Trimester two. Where your energy comes back and you feel yourself again. You start to feel the flutters of a little soul growing inside of you which makes it all worth it. I partly think that there is a reason to pregnancy brain, it’s actually an in built coping mechanism because if you actually remembered everything as vivid as it is felt at the time then I am honestly not sure how the human race would survive. Darwin’s theory would be proven even truer, of only the fittest would survive. Although in this case, physical fitness can actually make ...read more

Pregnancy: Everything you need to know for your journey

By Mel   •   September 7th, 2020


Wow what a physical, chemical and emotional roller coaster journey pregnancy is and for me it's only week 16. I was so very blessed to fall pregnant the first time we tried. I have spent 10 years trying to improve my health and make good choices to balance my hormones. I work with babies and pregnant women every day and as much as I factually and logically understood what was happening to a woman’s body after conception. I can honestly tell you there isn’t anything quite like the experience. If you are trying to conceive, are currently pregnant, or have been blessed with one, two or more ...read more
