Chiropractic & Pregnancy: A Mother’s Perspective

Hey!! I’m Ashley and am the mom of 3 littles aged 6, 5, and 3. We had a miscarriage in July last summer and were absolutely devastated.

The pregnancy shocked us as we never knew we wanted 4 kids. Luckily for us, this baby opened our eyes to the love we did had for another child in our hearts. Shortly after we lost our sweet Ashton (named after myself and hubby Tony) we found out that he/she handpicked a sibling for us and we were pregnant yet again.

This pregnancy has been the biggest rollercoaster of my life. From Hyperemesis Gravidarum (extreme morning sickness all day long), migraines, a mini stroke attack, severe anemia requiring 5 iron infusions, gestational diabetes, and all of the other “normal” pregnancy symptoms… on top of tending to the demands of three small children… to the extreme joy of carrying a perfectly healthy baby girl.

I am SO beyond thankful that I crossed paths with Dr. Erica Boland at Coulee Health in West Salem.

Although this is my 5th pregnancy (4th carried to term), I am amazed at all that I have learned from Erica about my body. Seriously, I feel like a first time mom with all of the knowledge I hadn’t even heard of before meeting her. Diastasis recti and pelvic floor issues…. What?!?! 😉

I am 38 weeks pregnant, and post delivery will be attending her BirthFit Postpartum Series. I am SO excited for it! This is the only pregnancy that I have had chiropractic care and I am anxious to experience the difference it will make come labor time.

Thank you Erica for all of the support and encouragement and RELIEF you have provided me with this pregnancy with our Baby Skittles.

😊

Ashley
