Benefits of Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Chiropractors see patients before, during, and after pregnancy, and sometimes during labor as well! Setting the foundation for optimal communication between the brain and the body is not only great during pregnancy but long after!
Why should I visit a chiropractor?
Chiropractic visits can help with getting pregnant and staying pregnant and can be a great tool in the prenatal routine. Regular chiropractic care encourages increased blood flow, which is beneficial for conception for women. It also reduces stress and relieves pressure on the body, which can affect the vitality of reproductive organs.
What happens in a prenatal chiropractic visit?
During pregnancy, chiropractors work on opening up the pelvis to align the body. This includes working on the joints, the ligaments, and the muscles through The Webster technique. This is a gentle pelvic approach used in late pregnancy to reduce intrauterine stress. It corrects alignment of the pelvic bones, muscles, and ligaments which can lead to the natural correction of a mal-positioned baby such as breech or transverse. This is NOT a technique that physically turns the baby.
What are some benefits of prenatal chiropractic care?
- Balances the pelvis, facilitating labor and delivery
- Keeps clients more comfortable as pregnancy goes on
- Helps decrease labor time
- Helps with nausea
- Helps prevent C-section
- Speeds up recovery time
Chiropractic care is not only beneficial for the birthing person but can be great for the baby as well! Being well-adjusted can help a baby get to a better position for birth. A chiropractor helps with your spinal alignment and pelvic connection to allow space for the baby to descend down the birth canal.
