Preconception through Postpartum

The moment your pregnancy test turns positive, your heart fills with joy and wonder, sprinkled with a tiny bit of worry. You’re about to embark on a beautiful journey of motherhood, filled with anticipation, excitement and a touch of concern about your baby’s wellbeing. As your little one grows in your belly, you may start to worry about how your emotional state could influence your baby’s development.


But here’s the good news – with the advancements in research and technology, you now have an amazing opportunity to positively shape your baby’s neural health right from the get go. Heart rate variability tracking is one such innovation that gives you insights into your baby’s wellbeing.

If you’re curious about how your emotional health impacts your baby, we’re here to help. We’ll explore the science of nurturing your baby’s nervous system and guide you in taking proactive steps to ensure your baby’s healthy development. You’ll learn about how maternal stress can affect your baby’s neurological development in the womb.

Let’s take a journey with Poppy and James, who embarked on a journey of Neurologically-Focused Chiropractic Care before welcoming their beautiful baby Samuel. Poppy began chiropractic sessions before conceiving to optimize her health. She continued these sessions throughout her pregnancy, preparing her body for labor and delivery. When Samuel arrived, the birth was smooth, a testament to Poppy’s proactive approach to wellbeing.

Samuel received his first chiropractic adjustment when he was just 3 days old, giving him a healthy start. Chiropractic care played an essential role in improving Samuel’s latch and addressing newborn discomforts. Poppy and James’s journey serves as a reminder of the importance of proactive care in nurturing your baby’s health and happiness.

To understand how maternal health impacts your baby’s development, let’s dive into the role of the nervous system during pregnancy. The nervous system, anchored by the vagus nerve, controls vital functions like fetal growth and regulating conditions in the womb. It acts as the “mission control,” ensuring proper development of your baby’s brain, organs, and tissues.

Research shows that maternal anxiety can impact your baby’s developmental milestones. However, with prenatal assessments like heart rate variability (HRV) tracking, you can gain insights into your baby’s neurological growth and stress resilience.

So, if you’re intrigued by how HRV technology can empower you as an expectant mother, we’re here to help. Reach out to Safe Haven in Ashburn today!
