For a lot of mothers with newborn babies, nursing can be a struggle. Troubles can arise when either the baby is struggling to latch or if the mother’s milk production isn’t regulating fast or well enough. Chiropractic, thankfully, is a safe and steadfast alternative to help relieve some of the challenges that come from breastfeeding.
When you are a breastfeeding mother, your body is responsible for producing and releasing enough milk to keep your baby happy and healthy. And your baby’s ability to gain nutrients relies entirely on your milk “letting down”. But sometimes, this production is slow to occur. Additionally, many female bodies often are unable to “let down” their milk production.
Did you know that a mama’s milk supply and ability to let down are actually neurologically controlled? And, if you are experiencing any physical nerve pain, your let down reflex is also affected. This means that your body and mind are working together to feed your baby.
We have good news for you though!
Because nursing is such a mind-body interaction, if you’re having trouble, your body will likely respond to a chiropractic adjustment.
At Clear Connections, we are specialized in working with mothers and infants. Our first step will be to assess your body, examining for any subluxations. We’ll then apply a gentle adjustment to help remedy any dysfunctional areas of your spinal chord. By pinpointing these trouble areas, your body will get the relief it needs, allowing your milk to letdown painlessly.
If you’re looking for a little extra help breastfeeding, give us a call today. We look forward to working with you.
