Having a baby is hard work!

The effects of pregnancy on the mother’s body are monumental. To ensure a healthy and safe delivery, it is crucial to have the body, spine, and pelvis in their optimal states. Chiropractic care throughout the pregnancy can help to achieve that goal.

Adjusting the spine and pelvis assures that the mother’s posture will keep the baby in a better position for delivery. Using Webster Technique, a specific sacral adjustment that helps to reduce uterine constriction, gives the baby a better chance to turn and avoid a breech presentation. Having the spine and pelvis in alignment also helps to reduce labor time. On average, a mom who has had chiropractic care throughout her pregnancy will have about a 25% decrease in labor time. This phenomenon is due to the pelvis being in a good position to deliver and the nervous system being able to work as designed because a well aligned spine.

Your chiropractor is also a good source for nutritional advice during pregnancy. Pregnant moms could be lacking essential vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids.  Your chiropractor can offer safe and effective supplementation and dietary advice which can be tailored specifically to your needs.
