The Benefits of Chiropractic Care during Pregnancy

If you are looking for supportive, natural care for your body during pregnancy and to have a comfortable birth, chiropractic care is the way to go!
I recently discovered the benefits of going to a chiropractor during pregnancy. At 12 weeks pregnant, I started having horrible pelvic pains at night. I was having a hard time trying to sleep and getting out of bed in the morning was the worst pain I had ever experienced. A close friend of mine told me all about going to the chiropractor and how it really helped her throughout her pregnancy. I was willing to give anything a try to help with my pain. Not only was my pain finally relieved, I learned all the great benefits chiropractic care has to offer! 

Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy Helps: 
  • Maintain a Healthier Pregnancy
  • Manage Symptoms such as Nausea, Heartburn and Indigestion.
  • Relieve Back, Neck and Joint Pain.
  • Reduces the Chances of Cesarean
  • Reduces the Chances of Vacuum and Forceps Delivery
  • Reduces the Likelihood of Shoulder Dystocia
  • Promotes Easier Breathing by Allowing the Ribcage to Move Freely
  • Allows Mother and Baby More Comfort
  Chiropractic Care During Delivery Helps Ease Mother's Pain and Length of Labor.

Chiropractic is a natural approach to life and health which helps the mother gain trust in her body's own ability to accomplish this incredible innate unfoldment!
Chiropractors work specifically with your pelvis throughout pregnancy, restoring state of balance and creating an environment for an easier, quicker, safer delivery!

Pregnancy and Birth Need Our Respect, Not Intervention.

What to Pack a Toddler for Camping!

Every year our family takes a camping trip. Last year our son was just a baby and didn't need as much as he does now. This was our first time camping with a toddler and like always, I wanted to be prepared! This is a packing list of things I thought we would need during our 3 day trip, strictly for my toddler.

Almost everywhere I go, I always have a general medicine/first aid kit with me packed in a small wet bag. For the most part it contains: Boogie Wipes, Diaper/First aid cream, thermometer, Nasal Aspirator, Children's Tylenoand Band-Aids (not pictured)
With some extras added for camping, such as: Bug Spray, Sunscreen, Anti Itch gel (for bug bites) 
Based on how the weather will be, depends on what to pack. For our trip, we packed for cold weather. My toddler's bag contained:
2 Pairs of Jeans, 2 pairs of Sweat Pants, 3 Long Sleeve Onesie's, 4 Long Sleeve Shirts, 3 Pairs of Fleece PJs, 3 Pairs of Socks, 2 Jackets, 1 Light Jacket, 2 Pairs of Play Shoes, 2 Hats, Diapers (or Undies) Wipes, Two Wet Bags (for dirty clothing)
These were a must for us.
Dump Truck, Shovel & Pail, a Few Small Cars and Trucks, Bubbles and a Kid Flash Light.
We also made a scavenger hunt game to bring with us.
Some Other Things I Recommend:
These I did Not Bring but are suggestions
Stroller: Strollers can take up a lot of space in your car but if you plan to take long hikes or activities, may be good to bring along if your toddler gets tired.
Baby Carrier: Another option to bring along rather than a stroller.
Kid Play Tent: a small fold down or pop up tent for your toddler to play in.
Kid Chair: So they have their own chair to sit in.
