Pregnancy and Chiropractic

At first glance, most people don’t see the connection between chiropractic and pregnancy. However, there are four stages in which having an optimally working nervous system can help both mother and child. Our pregnant patients often report shorter, more pleasant deliveries when they receive chiropractic care.

Pre-Conception

Chiropractic care prior to conception promotes a more regular menstrual cycle and optimal uterine function. It prepares the body to be as strong, supple, and as balanced as possible to carry the pregnancy.

Pregnancy

During pregnancy, there are several changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for developing a baby. Increased curves in the back, a protruding tummy, as well as, postural changes that cause most women discomfort. Back pain and nausea are the most popular complaints from pregnant women and is an inconvenience that comes with the joy of expecting a child

Regular Chiropractic care helps maintain uterine ligament flexibility and balance. When the growing baby is comfortable it can assume the optimal birthing position

Labor and Birth

Mothers who get adjusted during the birth process seem to require less intervention. When the mother remains supple, the baby can more easily through the birth canal.

After Birth

Even natural births can stress a baby’s spine. Breastfeeding problems can arise if the baby has a misalignment of the spine and is unable to comfortably turn its head to one side.

Relax. We use special approaches to make our adjustments safe and comfortable for you and your child. Having a more normally working nervous system, especially when you’re pregnant, creates the optimal environment for your baby to realize his or her fullest potential.
