Your Body Is Changing
During pregnancy the mother’s body is rapidly changing, both physically and hormonally. The three hormones involved in pregnancy are: estrogen, progesterone, and relaxin. These are all directly influence the structure of the spine and pelvis, increasing the likelihood of subluxation to occur. By choosing chiropractic care throughout your pregnancy, your body and nervous system will be better prepared to adapt to these changes, improve organ function, and allow for a happy and healthy pregnancy and birth.
Both of our Doctors are specifically trained to care for women from pre-conception all the way through birth – including Webster Technique*. Chiropractic is a gentle and non-invasive way of giving mom the best chance at attaining the birth that she wants. Most of our mothers report that their pregnancy while under chiropractic care was more enjoyable and that birth was shorter and less painful compared to pregnancy without chiropractic.
*The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that reduces nervous system stress, balances pelvic muscles and ligaments, and optimizes the mother’s pelvic function in pregnancy and birth. If the baby is breech, it MAY allow for the him/her/them to move into a better, more comfortable position.
