Chiropractic care during pregnancy can not only help relieve pain that plagues many expectant mothers, but it can help normalize nervous system function. Pairing regular chiropractic check-ups during pregnancy with other healthy habits will foster the best environment for a healthy baby.

There are four stages during a pregnancy in which having your nervous system in the best working order and your structural support top-notch will benefit both a mother and her child. With a constantly changing body structure and physical and emotional stresses, opportunities for beneficial chiropractic care treatments are numerous throughout a pregnancy.

The four stages of pregnancy that chiropractic care can benefit are pre-conception, pregnancy, labor and birth and post delivery.

Pre-Conception: Chiropractic care prior to conception strengthens and balances the body in preparation for it to carry the baby throughout the pregnancy. It also promotes a more regular menstrual cycle and optimal uterine function. In addition, restoring nerve supply to reproductive organs can enhance fertility.

Pregnancy: Balance, alignment and flexibility can be aided by chiropractic care during pregnancy. Providing comfort for the baby can pose it for the most ideal birthing position.

Labor and Birth: In general, chiropractic care can facilitate giving birth by making it faster and more comfortable. With the nerve supply working at its optimal level, the baby can move more easily through the birth canal, making for a shorter and less traumatic birth process for the mother.

Post Delivery: The baby may experience spine stress following birth, making it uncomfortable for the baby to turn its head to breastfeed. Plan a chiropractic checkup for your newborn as soon as possible.

Adjustments made during pregnancy are done with the lightest touch possible to promote safety, comfort and efficacy. Because an infant’s spine does not have the long-standing muscle tightness as an adult’s spine, it requires less force to make an adjustment to a baby than it does to an adult.

Chiropractors will take special precautions when delivering care to a patient during pregnancy, including making careful modifications to the table during each stage of pregnancy. As a team approach to better health, chiropractic care is safe and natural and is a means to pamper oneself during pregnancy while developmental and hormonal changes are taking place.
