Pregnancy Chiropractic

We want our bodies to function at as high a level as possible at all times. This becomes even more important during pregnancy. Chiropractic is gentle and all-natural.

Proper nutrition is even more important during pregnancy. If Mum has poor eating habits, it will affect the baby as well. Nutritional counselling can help a mum-to-be make changes that will benefit both Baby and her, now and for the future.

Why Do I Need Chiropractic Care?

During pregnancy, a woman’s body produces relaxin. This hormone has several functions. In the third trimester, it loosens the ligaments surrounding her pelvis to make delivery easier. Since these same ligaments provide support, misalignments can occur.

Chiropractic adjustment may ensure everything is properly aligned and functioning without restrictions. Pregnancy chiropractic works on the bone and ligament systems and muscular structures of the pelvis. The baby is not touched at any point.

After adjusting, Mum may experience less tension and has less stress which helps the baby as well. It may also reduce pain before and during the delivery. Many mums have experienced a much easier delivery when adjusted during pregnancy.

Will It Help Me?

Here are ways pregnancy chiropractic may benefit you:

1. Reduces uterine restrictions

When a mum’s ligaments relax, it allows the baby to be in the right position when she’s moving around. Sometimes, too much stress is placed on the ligaments preventing the baby from moving. Adjustment may reduce the stress and allow the baby to move.

2. Reduces lower back pain

Pain is caused by the extra weight mums have to carry. Chiropractic care may help correct the posture of the spine as the baby grows and prevent discomfort.

Other benefits may include relief from headaches, back, chest and neck pain, sciatica and tight hip muscles.

3. Chiropractic may help ease morning sickness

When nerves are compressed or vertebrae misaligned, digestive issues can occur, leading to nausea and vomiting. Adjustments may help the problems and provide relief from these issues. Some mums have found a reduction in symptoms from acid reflux as well.

4. Helps with recovery after birth

Some studies have shown that regular adjustments prior to delivery, may help the body to recover faster. Proper alignment helps the nervous system stay functional, balanced and healthy.
