Local Chiropractor in Vaughan Launches the Vaughan Wellness Pregnancy Support Group on Facebook

Friday, November 6th, 2015

Chiropractor at Back To Health Chiropractic Centre in Maple (Vaughan) is Creating an Online Community of Mothers-To-Be to Share their Thoughts, Ideas, and Experiences that Support a Natural, Safe, and Easy Pregnancy

MP900442961 Maple, ON – Today pregnancy is treated more like a medical condition rather than a natural, normal process. The use of medical interventions in the form of drugs and surgery have become very common, like pitocin, epidurals, c-sections, and episiotomies.

My mom tells me stories of how she and my dad were delivered by a midwife in their little southern Italian village decades ago. There were no hospital rooms and no medications. Pure, natural births.

At our chiropractic office, we strive to foster an environment where our patients are empowered, trusting, and confident in a pregnancy and birth process that is innate and natural.  

Chiropractic care, amongst other holistic professions, offer support for a natural, wellness pregnancy so that birth can be easy and safe for both mother and baby.  Pregnancy chiropractic care is safe and gentle and it helps balance the pelvic and spinal structures. This not only helps relieve pregnancy-related back pain, hip pain or leg pain, but it also helps minimize tension on the uterine ligaments and contraint on the uterus. This is important as a uterus free of intra-uterine contraint will provide for a safer environment for fetal position and subsequently an easier birth.

One of the initiatives at Back To Health Chiropractic Centre is to connect like-minded people who want to share their ideas, thoughts, and experiences about the wellness pregnancy. How we accomplished this is with a Facebook Group called the Vaughan Wellness Pregnancy Support Group.

The purpose of the Vaughan Wellness Pregnancy Support Group is to educate mothers-to-be in Vaughan and the surrounding areas about the vast resources that support a natural, wellness pregnancy so that both mom and baby can experience a healthier, easier, and safer birth.

Feel free to check out this group and join. You can share your thoughts, ideas, and experiences with holistic practitioners, chiropractic, Webster Technique, other support therapies, exercises, yoga, classes, workshops, seminars, nutrition, supplementation, stress relief, and goals/vision that support a wellness pregnancy.

We would love to hear about your holistic, wellness pregnancy experience.

Also, share your experiences, thoughts and ideas about home birthing, midwife care, doulas, and lactation consultants.

This is a group of like-minded people and experts that will support and encourage other mothers-to-be to trust in the natural process of birthing so they can experience pregnancy and birth with peace, joy, and love, versus stress, fear, and doubt.

Vaughan Wellness Pregnancy Support Group was launched by Vaughan chiropractor, Dr. Walter Salubro on October 29, 2015 and it has already grown to 51 members in it’s first week.

“My vision with the Vaughan Wellness Pregnancy Support Group is to connect mothers-to-be so they can create a community of support for each other and encourage a more natural pregnancy and birthing process”, says Dr. Walter Salubro. “I would love to see other holistic pre-natal care providers join, participate, and offer their expertise and insights into how to have a wellness pregnancy. We invite midwives, doulas, naturopaths, homeopaths, pre-natal yoga intructors, holistic nutritionists, and any other holistic practitioner or therapist.”

The Wellness Pregnancy Workshop

Vaughan Chiropractor Presents The Wellness Pregnancy Workshop

pregnant mom with childToday, pregnancy is seen more like a health condition than a beautiful normal process of nature.  Caesarean rates are high and intervention with medicine, hospital monitoring equipment and surgery has now become a norm. Many first time moms-to-be go through their pregnancy with fears of the unknown and without a solid birth plan.

However, the process of pregnancy is a natural human experience to be cherished. The goal should be an easier, safer and healthier birth for both mom and baby. And the closer to nature the birthing process is, the better it is for both mom and baby.

The objective of this workshop is to lead expectant moms and moms-to-be to make natural holistic health care choices so they can experience a Wellness Pregnancy for themselves. 

At this workshop, you will learn: 

  • Key dietary recommendations that provides optimal nutritional support for mom and for the growing baby.
  • Simple exercise routines to help maintain fitness during pregnancy.
  • How to choose your pregnancy health care team and who should be on your health care team.
  • How pregnancy chiropractic care and Webster Technique can help maintain spinal and pelvic balance to promote an easier birth.
  • And much much more.


“Having chiropractic care throughout both of my pregnancies made the experience of being pregnant more enjoyable.”

Many expecting moms seek chiropractic care during their pregnancy.  More then low back pain relief, chiropractic care during pregnancy prepares the mom and the baby for an easier birth.

Chiropractic care during pregnancy helps improve nervous system function, providing greater health potential for both the mother and the baby.  Also, chiropractic care during pregnancy help correct pelvic and spinal imbalances through the correction of spinal and sacral misalignments (subluxations).

Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic adjustment that helps correct sacral subluxations and balance pelvic bones, muscles and ligaments.

Chiropractic care and the specific use of Webster Technique may help facilitate easier, safer births for both baby and mother.

Chiropractic Care In Pregnancy

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010

Today, I received wonderful news from one of my patients.  She gave birth to her second boy.  And labour was less then 30 minutes.  She has been under regular chiropractic care for the last 4 months right up until yesterday, the day before delivery.  I thought it would be a good time to write about the wonderful benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy.

Chiropractors have been helping pregnant women for many years.  Chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy are safe and gentle.  Chiropractic adjustments help reduce pressure and discomfort in the low back that  develops as weight is gained during pregnancy.

Specifically, chiropractic care helps improve nervous system function in the pregnant mom, reduce stress on the nervous system,  and improve spinal and pelvic function.  This helps optimize the pelvic biomechanics in preparation for safer, easier births.

I invite to you to view this short video by Dr. Jeanne Ohm, Executive Coordinator for the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) where she discusses chiropractic care in pregnancy for easier, safer births.
