Babies

Don’t let anybody fool you…Birth is difficult. On the mama and the baby!

Moms often feel off balance and “out-of-whack” after having a baby – and no wonder! While it’s a natural occurrence – it doesn’t mean that you don’t need help recovering afterward! Not only can it be physically draining and misaligning, birth can create a whole slew of emotional issues as well: disappointment in the delivery, unexplained feelings of loneliness or sadness, feeling completely drained for weeks, months, even years after the birth.

The good news is that you don’t have to do it alone. Many of your closest relatives or friends might not “get it,” but there are plenty of other people who do. In our waiting room, moms who only know each other on Facebook get to meet face-to-face. They’ve come to Morter Wellness to re-balance and re-align, because they know that if they don’t feel good, the family is in trouble!

Dr. Katy’s gentle treatments of the body and the mind helps moms become more centered, calmer and better able to get through the day!

Babies can have a wide variety of issues after the birth process. It’s pretty intense, after all!

Difficulty nursing

Breastfeeding can be difficult – and stressful – for many reasons. Often, a few simple, gentle adjustments to the head, neck and pelvis makes painful latching easier. After the trip down the birth canal – or especially after a C-Section – the baby might be out-of-balance. This can manifest not only as difficulty nursing, but also ear infections, nursing only on one side, reflux, elimination problems, and general malaise.

The answer could be as simple as one or two gentle balancing adjustments of the body and the bones in the head (cranial bones) and neck.

Studies have shown that babies and children that receive gentle Chiropractic treatment tend to have less colds, allergies, difficulty breast feeding, and ear infections. In addition, Dr. Katy has counted as clients many children with of a wide range of issues including bed wetting, epilepsy, autism, muscular dystrophy and cerebral palsy.
