This is important from a chiropractic view point because whatever twists you had in your spine and whole skeleton before you got pregnant will now be changing as a result of the effects of this hormone circulating in your body during this time and for approximately 5 months after childbirth.
You may know someone who's back pain disappeared when they got pregnant and hasn't returned or equally someone who never had a bother with their back/neck/shoulders etc until they had children. Aside from the physical stresses of pregnancy, child birth and bringing up children, a woman's body isn't the same as it once was and this absolutely includes the alignment of the spine.

This is Kirsty's experience of her first visit with me...
Bernard tells us how he's still climbing 6a's at 70.
Every once in a while a truly inspiring person walks through the door. It's an honour to introduce you to Bernard. His great passion is Alpine climbing the Alps, Scotland and Wales with his brother and nephews. Cycling and rock climbing play a big part of his life, age plays not part on his mind, he fully intends to complete a forfeit from a bet he lost which consists of doing press ups in a glacial stream...
Bernard got in touch with me to sort his back and neck out when his body was stopping him getting on with his active lifestyle. Restriction in his neck began to affect his climbing, he described having difficulty looking up at mountain peaks, feeling like he would loose balance.
