What your Patient did NOT Expect when Expecting
The course covers “The Villains of Pregnancy, and What your Patient did NOT Expect when Expecting.”
I’m Dr. Brandie Nemchenko and I am so glad you’re here. As a chiropractor with nearly 20 years of experience caring for pregnant patients - and a mother of two, myself - it is my passion and my life’s mission to educate and empower a woman to have the best pregnancy possible. I have worked in sports medicine and as a paramedic in the emergency department for many years. I have used this prior experience to run and shape my practice today.
I have also developed the Bloom Philosophy, which is Experience Chiropractic’s approach to prenatal chiropractic care. Everything that our prenatal chiropractors do is guided by The Bloom Philosophy, a standard of care and approach created and adopted by each prenatal chiropractor at Bloom.
Over the course of the nearly twenty years I have been caring for pregnant patients, I have been privileged to share their joys and their sorrows, their frustrations and pain, but also their victories in moving beyond misery and blooming into expectant parents who can enjoy their pregnancy. This is my passion and my mission. There is nothing more gratifying than to help someone actually be able to take their pain to a manageable level and to afford them the ability to concentrate on growing their baby comfortably and with dignity.
To aid in teaching the methods to achieve this goal - I’ve developed avatars to personify common issues that affect pregnancy that can steal the joy - it should be. I’ve developed “The Villains of Pregnancy.” These Villains experienced throughout pregnancy are most COMMON meaning a lot of others experience them. But it’s important to note - pain during pregnancy is NOT normal and there's so much that can be done to improve quality of life not only by being able to work, enjoy your family, and feel self-sufficient, but to also allow someone to actually enjoy and savor their pregnancy.
Today, we’re going to talk about the six most frequently reported pregnancy-related issues that I’ve encountered in my practice - and that you are probably encountering right now! The purpose of this session is to help reframe our understanding that while these issues may be common, they are not normal. Don’t just tell your patients to grin and bear it. There are real strategies for helping to alleviate their pain. I have a history in sports medicine, and I have used techniques from that and applied it when treating my pregnant patients and alleviating their pain.
