Do You Want A Longer Labor???

I have had a number of skeptics in the past few weeks ask me what good chiropractic really does in pregnancy.
I mentioned relief of pain without medication, less breach presentation, ease of movement, lower risk of  complications, and was greeted with a "so-what" smile.
I  mentioned that studies show, pregnant women who have chiropractic care have shorter labors.
That impressed every single skeptic I spoke with. Who would have thought?

Here's the data
A study done in 1990 showed that women who were under Chiropractic care throughout their pregnancies had reduced labor times. First time moms experienced 25% less time in labor and birth and moms with previous babies averaged 31% shorter labor times.

Not bad at all!
