Birth, Baby, Chiropractice

See baby being pulled out by the neck? That’s a typical c-section, with the doctor pulling baby through an incision in mom’s abdomen. Those pulling forces are experienced by baby in most births, vaginal or cesarean, and cause a subtle shift in the top bone of the neck. And this can cause a variety of issues for the child. Since the nervous system controls and coordinates everything in the body, including development and healing, we have to make sure that a child’s nervous system is working properly. And the spine is the most common place in the body that can interfere with the nervous system, disrupting the amazing power that made the body.

Example: Despite being seen by neonatologists, pediatricians, lactation consultants, and a pediatric dentist who released 4 tongue/lip ties, no one could explain why Owen struggled to breastfeed. Mom thought nothing would change…then she tried chiropractic. After one gentle adjustment, which Owen melted into a relaxed bliss, things changed. He latched, and nursed. Mom sent a text soon after: “I just wanted to say thank you. We just got home and Owen nursed for 30 minutes…I can’t hardly believe it. I’ve cried for a week unable to provide for my babe, I’m so thankful! Whatever we are doing to him, it’s working.“

It is so important that every provider who works with pregnant women and children – OB/GYNs, midwives, perinatologists, pediatricians, neonatologists, lactation consultants, dentists, and others – understands that birth is physically stressful, and chiropractic offers a safe, gentle, and effective approach to helping Mom and baby navigate the transition from pregnancy to birth and beyond.

Midwifery in India

Disgruntled with the way the hospital machinery functions, more and more couples in India are looking at other (happier) ways of bringing their babies into this world… And more certified independent midwives for one-on-one care are needed!

Healing powers of Spiraling

Elena Tonetti-Vladimirova speaks about ‘Spiraling’:

“When asked directly about why the Birth Into Being Method has such a staggering display of efficiency, I would always limit myself by saying something like ‘one of the main factors is that all of our processes are experienced by participants in a slightly altered states, achieved by a few very specific types of movement alternating with a few very specific types of breathing’. That was the most revealing statement about my work that I was open to sharing publically, feeling that I can’t properly introduce this deeply mystical experience in a brief intro and do it justice by giving out only a fraction of information. But at this point, it feels right to start sharing more openly. So, in this interview, you can see a short version of the First type of movement, necessary to gently ascend the group of people into that proverbial slightly altered state, up into the vortex of the Birthing Field, the very source of our creativity and sexuality, into the pre-cognitive space ‘beyond the Story’, in which they can easily access and activate their Free Will.  Done properly, it goes with very deep breathing in the rhythm of waves rolling on a seashore.  Do try this at home. It feels incredibly healing, recharging, rejuvenating. Let your body flow like a piece of seaweed on a bottom of a shallow lagoon, completely at the mercy of the pulse of Life Force that charges and moves the water around it! Allow yourself to experience in real time that level of surrender, support, and mercy, all at the same time… Sending you so much sweet longing for more of THAT in your Life, that will inevitably bring you more… It all starts with us knowing what we want and what we don’t want. Lots of Love and Blessings, Elena”
