“I believe the chiropractic care during my second pregnancy prepared me to deliver my baby naturally. That's why I was able to have the baby at home, quick and 'easy'.”
Chia-Ling found Connection Cafe Chiropractic when she was looking for a pediatric chiropractor for her first baby. While we were providing care for her daughter, Chia-Ling became pregnant with her second child and decided to join the family plan to help with the aches and pains of pregnancy.
“I had lower back pain this pregnancy before receiving chiropractic care. This was the main reason for me to seek chiropractic care. The lower back pain disappeared within one month after regular adjustments and it never came back throughout the whole rest of pregnancy.”
Although a more comfortable pregnancy was her reason for seeking care, Chia-Ling realized there were many benefits to receiving prenatal adjustment and becoming a member of Connection Cafe.
“I feel fortunate that Dr. Morgan and Dr. Derrell took care of me during my second pregnancy. I loved the gentle touch on my belly that made me feel that not only me, but also the unborn baby were receiving care. Also, whenever I had any concerns or questions about the baby, tests, delivery, etc. I always got the best suggestions and answers in a holistic approach from Dr. Morgan and Dr. Derrell, who I value much more than the regular OBGYN.”
Chia-Ling had a relatively smooth delivery with her first baby. She started contractions around 2-3am, got to the hospital around 4pm and was already dilated to 7cm. She waited for her water to break naturally, then allowed the nurse to break her waters around 6:30pm to speed up the process. As soon as her waters broke, things progressed very fast and the baby was out in three pushes. She had been told that the second baby would come out faster than the first, but she didn't know just how fast it would be!
“My contractions started around 3am with 5-6 minutes rest in between. When getting ready to go to the hospital, my water broke around 4am. I took a quick shower before heading out. When putting on my shoes to get ready to step out, I felt a huge pain and I was not able to stand still. I kneeled down and felt the baby was dropping. Within seconds, she was out! I did not need to do any pushes at all and we had our second angel born at home. It was an unplanned home birth, but everything was nice and smooth.”
Chia-Ling's body knew exactly what it needed to do and when it needed to do it. It was this intelligence within her that brought her beautiful baby girl into the hands of her and her husband in the most natural way possible! Now the whole family receives regular chiropractic care to help them be as healthy as they can be as they adapt to the stressors and changes of life.
“I would recommend that every pregnant woman seek chiropractic care. However, not every chiropractor performs the same quality care as Dr. Morgan and Dr. Derrell. Thus, be sure to find quality chiropractors who specialize in infants and pregnant women.”
