Naturally Healthy Pregnancy for Mother and Child

Chiropractic care is completely safe during pregnancy, and comes with substantial benefits, including:

  • Relieving back, pelvic, neck and joint pain
  • Maintaining healthier pregnancy for mother and child
  • Reducing labor and delivery time
  • Increasing ease of delivery, requiring fewer interventions
  • Preventing potential caesarian section

Our nervous system controls all of our bodily functions, including the reproductive system. Any misalignments in your spine may be interfering with the proper nerve flow to the uterus. Chiropractic adjustments relieve pressure on the nervous system, allowing optimal nerve flow during crucial times in development and delivery, giving your baby the best possible start in life.

During pregnancy there are several physiological changes that occur in order to create the right environment for the developing baby. Some of these changes include increased back curve, postural adaptations, and pelvic changes. Many women experience back, neck, pelvic and joint pain during pregnancy. While many accept this as a normal part of pregnancy, it doesn’t have to be this way! This pain and discomfort is rarely caused by the pregnancy itself. More often, pre-existing misalignments become stressed and exaggerated as the body changes and the baby grows. Restoring alignment to the spine and pelvis allows your body to adapt to these changes without discomfort.

When the pelvis is misaligned, it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby, making it difficult for the baby to get into the best position for delivery. The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic adjustment that enables chiropractors to establish balance in the pregnant woman’s pelvis and reduce stress to the uterus and supporting ligaments. Restoring balance to the pelvis has been clinically shown to allow for optimal fetal position. Approximately 4% of all pregnancies result in a breech presentation. A 2002 study found that the Webster Technique resulted in an 82% success rate of turning breech babies. Even when the baby is not breech, a constrained uterus due to misalignments in the pelvis may inhibit the normal progression of delivery. Using gentle, non-invasive chiropractic adjustments, the pelvis is relaxed and delivery can proceed easily, reducing the need for medical intervention, and reducing stress on both mother and baby.
