Pregnancy is an experience unlike any other. Remember the movie, Alien? It’s not much different. Your growing baby can make you feel sick, dictates the foods you can and can’t eat, changes your body in all directions, and sends you on a hormonal rollercoaster. During this special time, taking care of your body is really important.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy is one way to keep you happy and healthy to have a healthy baby. Your nervous system controls your reproductive system. Chiropractic care can help safely guide the changes in your body during pregnancy. Hormones change the structure of your ligaments causing your pelvis to shift and back curvature to increase. Adjustments, exercises, and stretches can help establish proper pelvic balance and alignment. This can help give your baby safe room to grow and prepare your body to position for delivery. We can also help make you more comfortable with your changing postural alignment, relieve back, neck and joint discomfort, and help your body be more efficient. Adjustments during pregnancy may even decrease the time for labor and delivery and increase your chance of a successful vaginal birth.
At our office, we have a special table that accommodates your growing belly, allowing you to enjoy maximal comfort and even lie face down during your treatments. Many women find this to be a real treat! We have many techniques that are safe and effective throughout pregnancy and post-partum. We work closely with your OB and respect all your health decisions.
Having been pregnant myself, I can honestly say that chiropractic has helped me to have a healthy pregnancy and delivery. I even saw 6 patients in the morning the DAY that Ellie was born! Having a team of chiropractic, massage, yoga, midwives, and traditional obstetricians has been wonderful for me.
Enjoy your health and happiness!
