Many people are new to the idea of chiropractic care during pregnancy as well as how safe it is. Actually, chiropractic care is one of the BEST things a pregnant woman can do during her pregnancy, let alone one of the safest and most gentle approaches to better health. Many pregnant women seek chiropractic care for pregnancy-related complaints. During pregnancy, several changes occur to create an optimal environment for the developing baby. These changes are both structural and neurological. Being adjusted while pregnant will establish proper pelvic balance and alignment, that is just one of the many reasons to have consistent chiropractic care during pregnancy. If the pelvis is misaligned it will tighten the uterus and reduce the amount of room for the baby to move, grow and potentially get head down. This can affect the mother’s ability to have a natural, non-invasive birth. Through chiropractic care, mothers are given the opportunity for an easier and more comfortable pregnancy and birth. Chiropractic adjustments have also shown to reduce labor times and the need for pain medications during birth among the many other amazing benefits!
