Gentle and non-evasive, chiropractic is a safe and effective form of prenatal care that can provide the mother with relief during pregnancy, can help position the baby in utero, and assist the mother with post-natal pain. At chiropractic school, students all receive special training on adjusting pregnant women. This is because pregnant women, although in a more delicate condition, can receive a number of great benefits from chiropractic care.
Can Chiropractic Help with My Pregnancy and the Birth of My Baby?
As your body goes through the physiological and endocrinological changes during and following your pregnancy chiropractic can help. As the body changes, the curve in the back increases, the abdomen protrudes, the ligaments relax and the pelvis changes. Establishing pelvic balance and alignment is a reason to obtain chiropractic care during pregnancy. When the pelvis is misaligned it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. This restriction is called intrauterine constraint. A misaligned 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 posterior positions can interfere with the natural ease of labor and lead to interventions such as C-section.
Potential Benefits Include:
- Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
- Controling the symptoms of nausea
- Reducing the time of labor and delivery
- Relieving back, neck or joint pain
- Preventing a potential cesarean delivery
- Restoring Proper Posture
