When I got pregnant, I made the decision to have a drug-free delivery. I know that a lot of women choose to do otherwise, but I am a strong person and wanted to make sure that I didn’t go that route. So when I found myself having pregnancy-related back problems, I went to visit a chiropractor in Tracy who I have been seeing for help on and off for many years. This is because he knows how to provide pain relief without the use of prescriptions, which is perfect for someone like me who is pregnant.
I would not say that I’m a hippie, trying to live a life without a lot of unnecessary drugs is important to me. For so many years, we have all heard that the only way to feel good is to take prescription or over-the-counter products that will help us to feel good. But with a little research, I learned that there are other ways to help yourself in natural, healthy ways. I’ve read a lot of things that have learned to live that sort of life and to be honest, I’ve learned some ways to help myself feel better without prescriptions that do not always work.
Learning that chiropractors offer treatments that can help anyone was a big help in my life. For example, carrying extra weight during my pregnancy caused a lot of problems for my neck, lower back and the back of my legs. I tried to wait it out for awhile, but as I put on more weight, the worse the pain became. So, I visit my chiropractor once per week now and that has helped me so much. I feel like I can enjoy the rest of my pregnancy better as well. I still plan to fullfil my hope of a drug-free birth, too.
