As midwives, we see pregnancy as a healthy state for women. We serve low-risk women, and our focus is on helping mothers to stay healthy and low-risk. As part of a healthy lifestyle, we recommend our clients consider incorporating other modalities that complement the care we provide. NOVA Natural Birth Center offers an assortment of activities, classes, and providers for our clients to consider.
- Chiropractic care can help establish balance and optimal alignment in your pelvic region and back. Misalignment in your pelvis can cause discomfort during pregnancy and can prevent the baby from getting into a good position for delivery and reduce the amount of space available for the baby to descend. By seeing a chiropractor regularly, you can reduce the strain on your body and even reduce the amount of time you are in labor.
- Fitness can help you feel good and stay healthy during any time of your life. While pregnant however, it can improve your posture and decrease body aches and pain while increasing your stamina for labor.
- Massage Therapy can help alleviate body aches and pain, improve circulation, and relax the nervous system. Increasing your body’s circulation brings nutrients to the cells of you and your baby and increases your overall well being. Regular massage therapy sessions release endorphins into your body and will help decrease your anxiety and stress caused by hormonal changes.
