At the Functional Medicine Center of Fort Collins, we offer moms-to-be prenatal care. We approach our prenatal care the same way we do care for all of our patients, by focusing on the overall wellness of the mom and the baby.
We want you and baby to be healthy and feel your best, so we utilize chiropractic and acupuncture care among other treatments as part of your personal wellness plan. We understand how important structural support is during pregnancy and how pelvic alignment can help the baby be in the optimal position for birth. Prenatal care can make delivery easier and ensures the health of the mom and the baby.
At the Functional Medicine Center of Fort Collins, we know how important postnatal care is. Just because you’ve given birth doesn’t mean your job is over — it means the real work has just begun. Postnatal care is essential for every new mother.
Many times new mothers get so caught up in taking care of the baby that they forget to continue to care for themselves, and that is not good for the mom or the baby. Moms need to be healthy if they are going to have the energy to take care of their new baby and give their bodies the proper nutrients it needs to heal.
Postnatal care is even more important for moms who are breastfeeding. All new moms benefit from taking supplements and eating a healthy diet, but those who are breastfeeding need to have the proper nutrients in their body to feed the baby. Staying hydrated is also essential. When you receive postnatal care from the Functional Medicine Center of Fort Collins, we will ensure that you and your new baby are getting all the proper nutrients and care that you need.
The Webster’s Technique
Dr. Galyardt of the Functional Medicine Center of Fort Collins practices the Webster's Technique for soon-to-be-moms. This chiropractic technique helps to maintain a healthier pregnancy, reduces labor and delivery time, controls symptoms of nausea, relieves back, neck, and joint pain, and can even prevent the need for cesarean delivery. The Webster’s Technique is best known for ensuring that the baby is in the proper position for delivery making the birth easier and safer for the mom and the baby.
Nutritional Needs During Pregnancy
Pregnant women have special nutritional needs so that they remain healthy and the baby develops properly. At the Functional Medicine Center of Fort Collins, we understand how important it is for the mom and baby to get the proper nutrients, which is why we carry only premium, high-quality prenatal vitamins. This ensures that the baby is receiving optimal nutrients for proper development.
