Pregnancy Q & A

What can I expect at my initial pregnancy consultation?

Dr. Moyers focuses on helping you have a pain-free experience both during pregnancy and after you deliver your baby. With a patient-centered, whole-body approach, she provides education and services to give you a comfortable and joyful pregnancy. 

At your first visit, Dr. Moyers reviews your personal and family medical histories. She also performs a physical exam. Diagnostic testing, such as bloodwork or an ultrasound, may be needed for a full health evaluation and to check on the development of your baby.

She talks to you about maintaining good health throughout your pregnancy and may prescribe prenatal vitamins. You can expect to be weighed throughout your pregnancy to monitor your baby’s growth. She also tracks your blood pressure at each visit. 

 

Why do I need osteopathic care during my pregnancy?

At Sky Women’s Health, Dr. Moyers is a board-certified OB/GYN who optimizes your health with osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) to keep your body in alignment. 

Your body goes through many changes during your pregnancy — both hormonally and physically. As your baby grows, your shifting body can lead to changes in your posture.

Unfortunately, your spine and joints can become misaligned, leading to back and pelvic pain. However, seeing Dr. Moyers for treatment throughout your pregnancy addresses these issues. She can improve your musculoskeletal function, which relieves pain and provides numerous health benefits for you and your baby.

 

What are the benefits of osteopathic care during my pregnancy?

Treating your body with osteopathic care throughout your pregnancy provides many benefits, including:

  • Relieving pelvic and back pain
  • Relieving any acute sprains and strains
  • Improving nerve function and circulation
  • Helping you sleep better
  • Allowing you to stay on your feet longer
  • Helping you stay active throughout your pregnancy
  • Helping you keep up with your kids and family
  • Supporting your recovery after you deliver your baby

OMT has also been found to release stress if you’re having infertility treatments. In addition, continuing to receive OMT throughout postpartum, while you’re nursing, during postoperative changes, or during perimenopause and postmenopause can produce positive results.

During your pregnancy, helping your pelvis stay aligned with OMT can provide your baby with an optimal birthing position, making your delivery an easier process.
