Ever heard of vagal tone? This is the health of one of your cranial nerves that counteracts the fight and flight function in your body by stimulating a relaxation response.
It’s super important especially in pregnancy! The vagal tone of your baby matures at the end of the 2nd and beginning of the 3rd trimester. Research shows that minimizing stress during this time will affect the baby for the rest of their lives!!
If maternal stress is high or out of control, babies will be more likely to be colicky, hard to console, constipated, and prone to early infections.
Guess what chiropractic does? Modulates the vagal tone! This allows mom to be less stressed overall or at least manage stressful situations more easily. This is just one of the reasons why Chiropractic care during pregnancy is so vital for the health of mom and the baby.
