Chiropractic care during pregnancy

Dr. Monique Aucoin is one of the few certified pediatric Chiropractors in Nova Scotia who specializes in Chiropracrtic care for pregnant moms, babies, and kids.  She has helped many pregnant women achieve an optimal pregnancy and birth and/or those who are experiencing pain in the low back, pelvis, ribcage, pubic bone, etc.

She is certified in the Webster technique, which is a specific chiropractic analysis & adjustment that reduces nervous system stress, balances pelvic bones, muscles and ligaments, and optimizes the mother’s pelvic function in pregnancy and birth.

Chiropractic care for babies & kids

Dr. Monique Aucoin loves seeing babies and kids come into the office.  The Chiropractic adjustments are very gentle and is performed by applying a small pressure with a finger that is no harder than the pressure involved in checking the ripeness of a tomato.  Our goal is to remove spinal joint restrictions through a gentle yet effective chiropractic adjustment to ensure optimal function of their growing spine and nervous system.
