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 have less stress.

A Natural Way to Relieve Prenatal & Postnatal Discomfort

Many women want to avoid pain medication during pregnancy due to potential side effects. The good news is chiropractic care is a completely natural way to alleviate the discomfort that many women experience throughout their pregnancy.

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. Pregnant patients receiving gentle chiropractic care may get relief from the following:

  • Headaches
  • Back, chest and neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Tight hip muscles

During the postnatal period, chiropractic care may also alleviate pain due to lifting your baby, feeding positioning, diaper changing and more.

Many women also don’t realise that their posture was altered during pregnancy to account for the weight of their growing baby. Our chiropractor will help identify incorrect, compensating posture, and then provide you with exercises to help you get back to the best possible posture.
