Exercise & Pregnancy

Exercise is great for everybody, but it can do amazing things for pregnant women. Exercise can help stimulate progesterone production, which could combat pregnancy complications. Exercising throughout a pregnancy can help an expecting mother cope with labor and have an easier delivery. Exercise also enhances postnatal recovery and rehabilitation. The team at Vidan Family Chiropractic are dedicated to empowering mothers and helping them find the routines that work for them.
