Pregnancy

Pregnancy adjustment by Dr. KimberMany women have never heard of the powerful benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy. However, during each stage of the pregnancy journey, an optimally functioning nervous system and aligned spine greatly benefits the expecting mother and her 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 throughout pregnancy benefits mothers who seek a natural approach to care. Our doctor is a Certified Webster Technique practitioner, with in-depth experience working with the prenatal population so you can rest assured that you will always receive the highly specialized adjustment and most valuable bodywork necessary during pregnancy. Prenatal chiropractic promotes improved comfort, ideal spinal and pelvic alignment, optimal fetal positioning and proper maternal biomechanics… helping to ensure your pregnancy is an enjoyable experience.

Our office is highly tailored to the specialized needs of our expecting mothers and offers equipment and prenatal comforts to ensure your visits with us are always safe, gentle, and relaxing.

Labor and Birth

Many mothers rely on prenatal chiropractic care to help assure optimal biomechanics of the spine and pelvis in the hopes of succeeding with their ideal birth plan and reducing the need for invasive interventions during the birth process.

After Birth

Even in the “easiest” of deliveries, birth is a challenging event for both the mother and her new baby! Difficult labors, cesarean section, or medical interventions may add further stress to the spine and nervous system, increasing the need for spinal assessment (for mom AND baby) after birth. We support families through this “fourth trimester” transition to ensure success in many aspects such as breastfeeding, sleeping, recovery and more – helping your growing family thrive!

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.
