“I originally came to Congruent Life towards the end of my second pregnancy because I had high blood pressure. I had a lot of anxiety and fear because of the high blood pressure and because of how I felt after my first birth. After my first baby I was all over the place emotionally. I felt like my hormones never really regulated. I like to be active and go out to do things, but after my birth with Liam we just had to sit at home a lot. I just felt like I couldn’t function like I wanted to. If things didn’t change, not only was I worried that I’d be on blood pressure meds the rest of my life, but I was worried I would have to live my life without the adventures I loved!
Things are so different during this postpartum journey! My only regret is that I didn’t come in sooner! Not only has my blood pressure continued to improve, I honestly feel like I did before I had babies. I bounced back so much quicker after birth, and my midwife actually said “you should have 10 more babies!” because of how well I was doing. It was so much different than the first time. After my first pregnancy, I even questioned whether I wanted to have more kids… because I just didn’t want to go through feeling like that again. I felt like I was going to be so limited in the way I could live my life… but now I have hope! After my first pregnancy I felt sluggish and anxious, which made me feel like a failure. Now after having my second baby, I should in theory be more stressed… but because of my care I am doing so much better! I wake up excited to do things with my kids!
I had gone to the chiropractor before, but my experience with you guys was much different. Rather than just going when I had “issues”, you guys put a plan in place for my OPTIMAL health and life! I felt hope immediately because Dr. Mike and Dr. Nikki took the time to listen to me and care for me as a whole person. The care wasn’t fear based like I had experienced in the past, but instead it gave me joy because I didn’t have to be afraid anymore!
Now that myself and my two children are all under care, I feel so confident having this a part of our lifestyle. Our family is on a positive health trajectory now! We don’t have to be limited thinking about the “what if’s” anymore. Instead we can spend our time thinking about what we want to do as a family! We know we are doing the best we can do for our health! We are putting in the time and work now, so we don’t have to worry about our health later!”
