Chiropractic care during pregnancy can be beneficial to both mother and baby.


Chiropractic care can be very helpful during pregnancy. Not only is chiropractic a good choice for relieving the low back pain often associated with pregnancy, it also has other benefits. Pregnancy offers a unique opportunity to remodel the spine due to the changes in hormones that prepare the body for delivery of the baby. We can often correct long-standing problems. Chiropractic care improves the nervous system function for the mother, giving her baby a better chance for healthy development.

Chiropractic care has been shown to be helpful both before and after pregnancy as well. There are many reports of women who went to their chiropractor for low back pain who had problems with infertility being able to conceive after chiropractic care. Women who receive regular chiropractic care during pregnancy often have easier deliveries. Some women even choose to get adjusted just prior to or during labor. Chiropractic care in the postpartum period has been found to help with hypolactation, the problem of not producing enough milk for the newborn child. Successful breastfeeding can help alleviate postpartum depression.

Chiropractic care has been found to be safe to both mother and child during pregnancy. Your chiropractic care will be tailored for the individual needs of each pregnancy. Your chiropractor has been trained to work with pregnant women and their spines.
