At our offices, our doctors are highly trained in prenatal chiropractic care. This type of care is essential to consider, because during pregnancy, there are several physiological and endocrinological changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby.
Establishing pelvic balance and improving function is another reason to obtain chiropractic care during pregnancy. When the pelvis is not balanced, it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. This restriction is called intrauterine constraint. A comprimised pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery. This can affect the mother’s ability to have a natural, non-invasive birth. Breech and posterior positions can interfere with the natural ease of labor and lead to interventions such as C-sections. (Many of our patients that were born Cesarean have health problems later in life.)
What are the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy?
Chiropractic care during pregnancy can provide benefits for women who are pregnant, just as it can benefit women who wish to get pregnant.
Potential benefits of chiropractic care before/during pregnancy include:
- Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
- Controlling symptoms of nausea
- Reducing labor and delivery times
