Pregnancy Care at SCW
If you are planning to conceive or are expecting; welcome! SCW offers alternative care and a supportive environment for all stages of family development. Depending on your specific needs, we utilize a wide variety of Eastern and Western medical treatments to successfully support and guide you to wellness.
Pregnancy care at Scarnecchia Chiropractic & Wellness is an integrative approach, offering a variety of treatment options for a healthy and safe pregnancy. Our pregnancy care is in conjunction with your primary birth provider to ensure the best care for you and your baby. We can provide the following throughout your pregnancy:
Gentle therapies, including Webster Technique, for musculoskeletal complaints and optimal pelvic positioning for the baby to develop and move into the best possible position for birth. This positioning depends upon the balance of bony pelvic structures, muscles, and the ligaments that support the uterus.
At home care recommendations to support posture and pelvic function.
Acupuncture for symptoms of nausea, headaches, digestive issues, musculoskeletal complaints, stress, relaxation, breech presentations*, and labor promotion.
Education about pregnancy, avoidances throughout, nutrition and exercise.
Additional support including local providers and online resources.
“The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxations/ SI joint dysfunction. In so doing neuro-biomechanical function to the pelvis is facilitated.”
- International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, ICPA
*Breech presentations should be handled by your birth care provider, however, there is research that supports the stimulation of certain acupuncture points.
This can be an exciting and trying time for couples, and being prepared both physically and emotionally is priority for a positive outcome. Preconception health focuses on infertility concerns, optimal nutrition, and pelvic balance.
Pregnancy brings about a lot of changes in your body and returning to your pre-pregnancy state takes time. Our post-natal care focuses on strengthening your core and pelvic floor muscles, nutritional recommendations, as well as acupuncture for emotional, digestive, lactation and menstrual support.
We welcome all phone calls for questions! Please contact us at the SCW office: 980-237-3424.
“Finding Dr. Bailey early on in my pregnancy has been vital to the health and comfort of myself and my baby. Dr. Bailey is truly gifted in her work with women— she is very knowledgeable and can recommend a number of ways to lessen discomfort and stay healthy.
If she doesn’t know about some small detail, she researchers the issue and comes up with multiple possible solutions. I always knew I would feel better after leaving the office! Furthermore, Dr. Bailey supports her patients with empathy and compassion, giving them confidence in their ability to carry and birth well. I wholeheartedly, without reservation recommend you lean on her for chiropractic care during pregnancy!”
