During this special time, Dr. Whelchel works with patients to nourish the mother and her uterus while growing a new life. She offers the outstanding Arvigo Abdominal Therapy to ensure plentiful blood flow to the uterus, placenta and the precious baby. The therapy also has the added benefit of relieving many common complaints of pregnancy such as sciatica, leg cramps, heartburn and back pain. Preliminary studies have shown shorter labor times and fewer adverse outcomes when mothers utilize the Arvigo Abdominal Therapy during pregnancy. Arvigo Therapy is also beneficial in reducing scar tissue after C-section births and helping guide the organs back into place after any birth.
Dr. Whelchel uses Arvigo Therapy or Maya Massage with women desiring VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarian-section) deliveries. This therapy is excellent for keeping the baby, uterus and pelvic structures aligned for proper delivery. She is always happy to share her personal VBAC experience and credits much of the success to Arvigo therapy during her second pregnancy.
