If any of these signs occur, please call us right away:
Women typically experience the first signs of baby movements between 18 and 20 weeks. After 28 weeks, we recommend doing fetal kick counts daily. Choose a time during the day when your baby is typically active. You should feel 10 movements within that hour. Remember that babies have sleep cycles. If you have not felt your baby move in for a couple hours, eat, drink a large glass of cold water and lay down on your side. You should feel at least 10 movements within the next hour. If you do not feel adequate movement, please call us.
We feel that chiropractic, acupuncture, physical therapy, and massage therapy are safe during pregnancy so long as the practitioners are licensed and comfortable working with pregnant women. Please feel free to inquire about referrals for these practitioners.
