CAST 006 Chiropractic, Preparation for Birth and Trusting the Body
In this week’s Episode of Mum’s The Word we have a hugely inspiring lady and also a mentor for me in both the Birth and Chiropractic word, Dr. Jeanne Ohm. Jeanne opens up and shares her wisdom but also gives her views on why birth can go wrong for women but also how it can go so so right too.
Listen in and you’ll learn why Chiropractic plays an essential role in a woman’s preparation for birth and how it can lead to shorter labor times. Amazing right!? Hence why I’m so passionate about this. Also Jeanne shares from some of the the latest research Chiropractic research currently being conducted and how Chiropractic significantly effects the outcomes of VBAC births for women under chiropractic care differently from those that are not under care during their pregnancy.
