Pregnancy & Baby

During pregnancy your body changes shape and flexibility to prepare for birth. This can bring on aches and pains, with discomfort experienced during early motherhood. Chiropractic is particularly helpful when pregnant, as it detects areas of tension in your spine, pelvis and body which affect your comfort and how adaptable you are to carrying your baby.

Babies are well adapted for labour with soft and supple bodies, sometimes they may undergo intense or prolonged pressure during the process. This may be due to intervention at birth or a traumatic labour. A Doctor of Chiropractic can examine a newborn, only days old, and help to ensure the baby is in the best of health. Our chiropractors are trained to check a babies neuro-musculoskeletal system. Optimising a childs movement and development in their early days gives them a healthier and brighter future.

An infant may not be able to tell you they are uncomfortable, but they can show it. Typically, you may know your child is unhappy if you notice:

  • Excessive Crying
  • Excessive Irritability
  • Difficulty Feeding
  • Difficulty on pooing
  • Abdominal discomfort and reddened face
  • Prefers looking to one side only
  • Developmental delays
  • Ongoing ear or chest infections
  • As a parent, you will feel they are just not happy


Trained in paediatric care, your Doctor of Chiropractic can help put your mind at rest. We can offer advice and care for your child, or refer to other healthcare practitioners when necessary. Having worked in Prenatal Clinics, with midwives and with many babies and parents, Dr Michelle Chrapkowska is an experienced chiropractor offering gentle and effective drug-free care for children of all ages.
