At 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.
Chiropractic care helps by preparing the body to be as strong and balanced as possible to carry the pregnancy to term.
Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy appeals to mothers who seek a natural approach to better health, in addition to their regular medical care from their primary care provider.
Labor and Birth
Many turn to 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.
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.
