A local business is hosting an evening event aimed at helping mothers-to-be better prepare for pregnancy and birth.
The event, called "Bump Night," is hosted by Summit Spine and Sport Chiropractic, brings different businesses and specialists together to enjoy a night of relaxation, shopping, and learn about pregnancy chiropractic. Doctor Kimball Arritt says the science behind pregnancy chiropractic is extremely positive and encouraging for mothers worried about long and hard labor and delivery.
"What we do with chiropractic care is try to prevent undue tightening of the belly, of the uterus and the ligaments surrounding the pelvis and attach to the uterus, so that there's the most optimum room for baby to grow and position themselves correctly, especially as pregnancy goes on and also to decrease the amount of pain," Doctor Kimball Arrit, chiropractor at Summit Spine and Sport Chiropractic, told BYU-Idaho Radio. "We also see...anywhere from a 24 to 45 percent reduction in labor and delivery times."
In addition to labor and delivery time reduction, Arritt also says the practice helps to prevent or curb issues the baby may encounter like cholic, sleep issues and even neck tension.
The information event takes place on Wednesday, September 20 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
