Craniosacral therapy promotes a healthy pregnancy.
Every mom wants a healthy pregnancy. Craniosacral therapy during pregnancy for the mom promotes the healthy development of the baby by supporting the becoming mom’s mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
A woman who is healthy on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level will be in an optimal position to provide the best possible environment for the development of the growing life inside her.
The developing baby relies on mom during pregnancy.
The developing baby is totally dependent on mom for the building blocks of life. The mom literally breathes, takes nourishment, and eliminates metabolic toxins for the baby. When she sleeps, her body does repair and maintenance that supports her own life preserving processes, as well as those of the baby.
A new life begins inside a woman’s body and remains there until it is ready to meet the world outside it. While safely tucked inside the womb, it receives from the mom all that is needed to allow it to develop from a single cell to a fully formed human being.
The placenta is the life-giving and life-preserving interface between the becoming mom and the developing baby. The developing baby receives oxygen and nutrients from the mom through the placenta and eliminates carbon dioxide and other metabolic toxins via the blood, again through the placenta.
To be clear, there is no blood exchange between mom and baby. Instead nutrients and oxygen diffuse from the mother’s blood through the placenta into the blood of the fetus. Conversely, metabolic toxins and carbon dioxide diffuse from the fetal blood through the placenta into the mother’s blood.
Hence, the mom provides nutrients and oxygen to the fetus and clears the toxins for the fetus via her own kidneys.
Although natural, pregnancy challenges mom’s body to the fullest.
While pregnancy is a natural process, it nevertheless challenges the woman’s body to the fullest. Common symptoms experienced during pregnancy are difficulty breathing, and digestive distress, as well as neck, back and pelvic pain, swelling of the face, neck, arms, and legs, and so forth. These symptoms are caused by hormonal changes and the expansion of the uterus resulting in postural changes and pressure on the internal organs, as well as the spine.
Craniosacral therapy helps the mom to adjust to the physiological and physical changes of pregnancy, supports cardiovascular function, facilitates deep breathing, improves digestion, and alleviates much of the musculoskeletal pain and discomfort so common during pregnancy. Moreover, craniosacral therapy helps to balance her emotions, tonify her mind, and calm her spirit. In short, craniosacral therapy supports a healthy pregnancy.
What’s Good For Mom Is Also Good For The Developing Baby.
The developing baby benefits from
- improved delivery of oxygen and nutrients
- improved release of its metabolic toxins
- a generally more relaxed physical environment in the mom’s abdomen
- less stress transmitted to it by the mom
Craniosacral therapy thus helps to pave the way to a successful and healthy pregnancy and delivery while promoting the health and well-being of the becoming mom and the developing baby.
