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

The physiological conditions of pregnancy can result in a misaligned spine or joints as your body adapts to carrying extra weight and your pelvis changes to accommodate your developing baby. Before you realize it’s happening, postural adaptations can result in misalignments that are painful or uncomfortable for you and can even make birthing more difficult.

Prenatal Chiropractic

Prenatal chiropractic care helps maintain pelvic alignment, reducing intrauterine constraint, and increasing the room available for the developing baby. A misaligned pelvis can affect the baby’s birthing position and the mother’s ability to have a natural birth without invasive interventions.

“You can get adjusted all the way through pregnancy,” says Dr. Rebecca, who utilized chiropractic care during her pregnancies, including to help recover from a sacroiliac joint injury. “There are soft tissue techniques on the front of the abdomen that prevent the ligaments from being too tight, which can push the baby to one side or into a position that might not be right for birthing. When your body is changing so dramatically there are little, subtle tensions and issues that if you don’t get them aligned will multiply and become bigger problems as you’re gaining weight.”

Other potential benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include relieving neck, back and joint pain, decreasing the need for cesarean delivery, reducing labor and delivery time, and reduced nausea.
