Essential Care During Pregnancy

If you are pregnant, one of the best things you can do for you and your baby is to see a Chiropractor.
Chiropractic care provides so many things a pregnant body needs:

  • A flexible and balanced spine, hips and pelvis
  • Internal organs without postural stress and freedom from nerve stress

All of the above are essential for a healthy pregnancy and delivery. Along with a better diet, exercise and avoiding drugs, alcohol and cigarettes, Chiropractic care should be an essential part of a pregnant woman’s healthcare regime.

How Will Chiropractic Care Help When You’re Pregnant?

A pregnant woman needs to have her body as healthy and strong as possible in order to handle the rigours of pregnancy and childbirth. A Chiropractor will examine your spine for spinal distortions known as subluxations. If subluxations are found in your body, they will correct them with a gentle low-force adjustment.

What Are The Benefits Of Chiropractic Care For Pregnant Women?

Chiropractic care may help maintain pregnancy, control vomiting, deliver full term infants with ease and produce healthier infants. It has demonstrated success with relieving back pain in 84% of cases, premature contractions and labour.

Visiting a Chiropractor Could Shorten Labour By 60%

Chiropractors have observed that adjustments can be of great value in normalizing the body functions of women with problems of pregnancy such as toxaemia. Adjustments have also been proven to shorten labour by as much as 60% and post partum depression is a rarity in women receiving regular care.

    I’m trying to work out what I need to do before I plan for my pregnancy. Is there any tips on how to prepare for pregnancy you know? Or what things I can buy to help speed up the process? We’ve been trying for a few months now and it’s starting to get depressing..x

      Chiropractic focuses on getting the body working as well as it possibly can. It isn’t just about helping people out of neck and back pain, but more importantly on getting all the systems in the body functioning properly. It is always important to make sure the pelvis is in its proper alignment to reduce the likelyhood of low back and sciatic pain later in the pregnancy. We often have women calling us 8 months into their pregnancy with pain, and it can be very hard to reduce the symptoms at this stage, but if the underlying biomechanics can be improved before the pregnancy, it makes for an easier 9 months. Research also shows that it makes for a shorter labout time.
