Welcome to the family
The Australian Children’s Chiropractic Centre is the perfect environment for both you as a mum and your newborn. Of course, we welcome Dad’s too!
Whether this is your first baby or the latest addition to your family, we welcome you to come along and feel at home.
Our Chiropractors are here to support you through this stage. Our team takes the time to understand the journey you and your newborn have been on.
From getting to know information about your pregnancy and then birth we can start to understand what types of experiences your child has had in their short time on earth.
Another area that provides insight into your newborn’s health is the post birth recovery and the following weeks. This gives us an idea about how well they are adapting to the outside world and the experiences they are currently having.
Not quite sure if chiropractic is right for you and your newborn? Our practice director Dr Jacey Pryjma offers 15 min complimentary phone consultations for new families.
Take the opportunity to ask the questions you have before making an appointment. Find out if chiropractic and Australian Children's Chiropractic Centre may be just what you have been searching for.

We offer extra appointment times during the morning shifts as we find they are best suited for new parents and babies. The centre has changing facilities, comfortable chairs and feeding pillows for both breast and bottle-feeding and plenty of staff to help make you feel at home.
Our centre has been developed for families like yours.
Many of our families enjoy spending a little extra time at our centre, being out of the house but in a calm supportive environment is good for new parents. We will also make you a nice cup of herbal tea while you enjoy our space.
Do you have more than one child? Our huge open play area has a craft station as well as toys to help toddlers and older children stay occupied.
Gentle care for newborns
The care we provide is specifically modified to be gentle and appropriate for each child’s age, size and level of development. Unlike adult techniques, chiropractic adjustments for newborns look like relaxing stretches. Our Chiropractors have wonderful bedside manners and are able to engage with children to make the experience fun and enjoyable.
Chiropractic care has an exemplary safety record.
Your Chiropractor will discuss every element of care including research to help you get to know your child’s health and needs.
Signs of Musculoskeletal Concerns
As part of our very detailed examination process, our Chiropractors will take the time to show you and educate you on signs of discomfort that your baby may be displaying.
There are some common ways you baby may display discomfort. You may notice the following;
- Discomfort or difficulty with changing clothes
- Discomfort lying on changing table
- Difficulty with tummy time
- Dislike of car seats
- Avoidance behaviours eg. persistent asymmetrical postures – always having head rotated or tilted
- Dislike being held on one side verses the other eg. when feeding
Perhaps you may have concerns that are not on this list that you are worried about? Or you may have been referred to us by a health professional or even a friend or family member and you would like to understand what role Chiropractic care may play for your child? Please feel free to contact us using the button below and book a 15 minute complimentary converstation with Dr Jacey Pryjma our practice director.
