We invite Dr. Ross to speak to our students every series. We started out by having him come to a portion of a class to share the benefits of chiropractic in pregnancy and for breastfeeding, and to explain The Webster Protocol, a technique used for mothers carrying breech babies.
I imagined he would speak for about 30 minutes, leaving us two hours to spend on that week's topic with our students. After two sessions when the reverse was true, it became apparent that he needed his own class.  Ever since then, our Bradley™ series is actually 13 sessions: 12 classes with us, and 1 with Dr. Ross.
Our belief in the benefits of chiropractic stem from the results we see in our own family’s health.  I write about those HERE.  Among other things, we have been positively impacted in pregnancy and with breastfeeding, and those are the topics that are relevant to our students.
He speaks on several topics:

  1. Explains what chiropractic care IS and ISN’T: it’s not about cracking backs!
  2. The importance of whole food: offers insights on what does the body good and what to consider reducing (hint: gluten and milk!)
  3. The physical, chemical and emotional stressors that affect our lives: offers suggestions on how to reduce or eliminate those
  4. Chiropractic care benefits in pregnancy: eliminate waddling, and helps with SPD among other things!
  5. Chiropractic care benefits for breastfeeding: babies shouldn’t “like” one side and not the other
  6. Coaching Back Labor: offers the coaches in our classes 3 different ways to help a mom who is experiencing back labor

Now supposedly, women under chiropractic care have shorter and easier labors.  We found that they were easier…not necessarily shorter for us!  We wish that benefit for all our readers and student, though! I have listed several local chiropractors at the end of this post.  If you are not local to Phoenix, please check www.icpa4kids.com to find a chiropractor in your area.  If you are a skeptic like I was, consider scheduling a consult just to talk before you make a decision about initiating care.
