Moms Need a Postpartum Backache Break- Enter to #Win a Fab bag full of Goodies! CAN

When I became a new mom one thing I noticed was how strong and muscular my arms were. But my back really took the most damage!

Canadians winters are cold, leading to lots of couples cuddling up to keep warm. Needless to say, cuddling leads to snuggling, leading to…a baby boom come the summer months!

Pregnant women may be prepared for their labour pains, but aren’t always prepped for the postpartum backache that comes from the new load they’ll be carrying on a daily basis.

Routinely lifting a 7-10 pound infant up to 50 times a day can create crushing damage to your back if you’re not taking proper precautions. By the time a child is a year old a parent is lifting and carrying up to 17 pounds numerous times a day.

Regardless of the weight of the child, the combination of carrying a baby and their diaper bag puts ample stress on a new mother’s spine. With a baby in one arm and a diaper bag on the other, keeping stress off your lower back is a balancing act. Chiropractors commonly treat new moms with back pain and have suggestions on how parents can wean down the stress on their back.

That’s why the Ontario Chiropractic Association is offering my lucky readers a chance to win an ergonomic diaper bag filled with items to help new moms increase their back health.

Valued at $100 the prize pack will include a baby-and-me yoga video, a portable foot massager, an exercise ball, an active heat wrap for back pain, and of course, a new diaper bag for all the goodies to go in.
