Pregnancy and Chiropractic

Welcoming a new baby is one of life's most exciting moments. We love to help pregnant mothers prepare for the birth of their little bundle of joy with gentle and custom chiropractic care designed to meet the needs of their changing body.

Here's why chiropractic care is beneficial for expectant mothers:

1. Optimal Function Means Optimal Birth

A healthy spine is a way to be sure that your nervous system is at its highest functioning level. During pregnancy, if you’re able to keep your spine in alignment and your nervous system balanced, you are allowing your body to be as effective as it can be. It is especially important that your body is in peak performance to help prepare you to bring a healthy baby into this world!

2. Relief of Pain Related to Pregnancy…and more!

Mothers have to endure a lot to bring a baby into the world, and aches and pains are part of it. It is very common for expectant mothers to experience muscle discomfort, joint pain, and, you guessed it…back pain. This is due, in large part, to the fact that as the baby grows, its weight increases and puts new stresses on the mother’s shifting internal organs. Fortunately, chiropractic adjustments are gentle and effective during all stages of pregnancy to help relieve that pain.

3. Proper Alignment

As one of our chiropractic patients, you know we are focused primarily on spinal alignment. For expecting mothers, we also focus on the pelvis, and that it is in the proper position. This is for a number of reasons. If the pelvis is misaligned, it can limit the amount of room the growing baby has to develop and move. It also helps maintain proper posture throughout the pregnancy, which prevents slouching that leads to unnecessary body aches.

4. Benefits During Delivery

Every expecting family hopes for a healthy, smooth, and speedy delivery. If the mother’s pelvis is misaligned, it can lead to a more difficult delivery, as the baby isn’t necessarily able to get in the delivery position that is most ideal. For moms-to-be that want a natural and non-invasive birth, this can lead to problems.

Many of our patients have reported that regular prenatal care has provided them with seemingly faster deliveries that required less artificial intervention.
