I had the honor of being asked to check and adjust little Savannah Rose, who was only 7 hours old.
Savannah was born and for the first two minutes of her life she was not breathing. The doctors and nurses discovered that she had inhaled some blood. They were able to suction the blood out and she started breathing; however, her breathing was very shallow and she was pale.
I checked her upper neck and discovered a subluxation (misalignment of the vertebra). I very gently, with just a little bit of pressure from my pointer finger applied very specifically to the subluxation, performed Savannah's first chiropractic adjustment. Within minutes, her breathing was restored fully and her skin was nice and pink.
If you think about how rough the labor and delivery process is on the baby, you can understand how important it is for little ones to get checked as soon as possible following their entrance into this great world.
Thank you, Savannah and mom, for giving me the great honor to be a part of this miracle of life!
