Pregnancy

Pregnancy adjustment by Dr. KimberAt first glance, most people don’t see the connection between chiropractic and pregnancy. However, there are four stages in which having an optimally working nervous system can help both mother and child.

Pre-Conception

Chiropractic care prepares the body to be as strong, supple and balanced as possible to carry the pregnancy.

Pregnancy

Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy appeals to mothers who seek a natural approach to better health.

Labor and Birth

Many rely on chiropractic care to help assure optimum biomechanics of the hips and spine in the hopes of reducing the need for interventions during the birth process.

After Birth

Even natural births can stress a baby’s spine. Breastfeeding problems can arise if the baby has a subluxation and is unable to comfortably turn its head to one side.

Relax. We use special approaches to make our adjustments safe and comfortable for you and your child.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Will adjustments hurt my baby?

Of course not. A healthy mother and baby is our biggest priority! We often coordinate your pregnancy care with other members of your pregnancy care team to ensure you are receiving the best care possible for a happy, healthy pregnancy and delivery. The Webster Technique is a highly specific form of adjustment that is safe, effective, and gentle during pregnancy. Adjustments help to ensure a mother’s spine is in proper alignment throughout pregnancy, which offers great benefits for both mom and baby.

Pregnancy is natural. Why would I need chiropractic?

Being pregnant and giving birth IS a natural experience. However, birth has increasingly become considered as a medical procedure requiring intervention, when this is not always necessary. Chiropractic care supports a mother in her inherent ability to carry and deliver her child naturally. Adjustments during pregnancy often help an expecting mother reduce pregnancy and labor pains, manage a healthy pregnancy, shorten labor and recovery times, and achieve the successful, happy birth experience she always imagined.

Will my medical doctor approve?

Medical providers keeping up with the latest chiropractic research understand the value of this natural, drug free approach to better health. We make it a PRIORITY to develop trusting and professional relationships with medical doctors who regularly recommend our chiropractic care to their patients as a conservative treatment option for common conditions in children and adults alike. We believe that when healthcare professionals encourage and coordinate with each other’s expertise as a supportive team, YOU as the patient benefit the most!

What does my spine have to do with my baby?

Pregnancy is one of the best times to receive chiropractic care! While it’s always best to have an optimally functioning nervous system, it’s especially helpful now. When a mother’s spine and pelvis are maintained in proper alignment, both mom and baby benefit. During this period of significant body changes, weight gain, and hormonal changes many mothers seek chiropractic care for added comfort and health benefits. Adjusting methods are especially adapted to accommodate an expecting mother’s stage of pregnancy, comfort, and specific prenatal needs.
