Doctor performing pregnancy care

All of our chiropractors work with the body’s ability to adapt and function the way it is designed to. Chiropractic care in pregnancy is vital to the healthy physiological function of both the mother and baby in pregnancy, birth, and post-partum healing.

Our doctors are trained in the use of Special Techniques for Pregnancy which include:

  • Cranial work that further facilitates your body’s own natural healing abilities.
  • Webster Technique treatments that can release a breech baby to move into proper birthing positioning.
  • Organ reflex work to manage digestive and visceral discomforts.
  • Coordinated care with your OB, Midwife or Doula to manage pain and prepare you for labor.
  • Drug free remedies for morning sickness and digestive discomforts.
  • Postpartum care at home for mom and baby for existing patients.
  • Special adjusting pillows as shown above allow face down treatment to naturally relieve lower back pain.
  • Food sensitivity testing to determine if foods you are eating are negatively affecting your baby.

More than just care for low back pain, many mothers have come to recognize the vital role that chiropractic care plays in a healthy pregnancy. Many mothers report back to our chiropractors that regular adjustments helped them feel healthier during their pregnancy. It has helped decrease their morning sickness, facilitated shorter labor and delivery times and increased an overall sense of well-being.
Prenatal Chiropractic care can also help with the following:

  • Back Pain: The position of your growing baby will cause your center of gravity to shift and your spine will naturally alter itself to accommodate this change. As a result, you may experience low back and pelvic pain. 84% of pregnant women that received chiropractic care received relief from low back pain.
  • Bone Health and Alignment: The increase in hormones during pregnancy can also cause muscles, ligaments, cartilage and even bones to “soften” and become more pliable. Pelvic bones may even become displaced or fixated. Since your hips will need to spread to accommodate the delivery of your baby, fixated pelvic bones can lead to complications during delivery.
  • General Health and Comfort: Chiropractic care helps to improve your overall wellness, increases your comfort during your pregnancy and helps you to have a safe and natural delivery. Postpartum chiropractic care also relieves pain and helps women regain strength and balance in their hips and pelvis.
