A Healthy Pregnancy. A Natural Birth.
Restore Balance to Your Pelvis and Spine for a Safe, Comfortable Delivery
Pelvis & Spine Alignment Consult
The Pelvic & Spine Alignment Consult is for you if you are currently pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or have given birth before. We’ll discuss the importance of good pelvic and spine alignment for preparing your body for childbirth, positioning the baby for delivery, and chiropractic’s role in an easier recovery.
Pain Relief. Drug Free.
Chiropractic is a natural way to get relief from sciatica, low back, pubic bone, tailbone, neck, and joint pain, and headache relief, without the use of drugs that may be harmful to take during pregnancy.
Adjustments of the sacroiliac joints will help decrease pain and pressure, relax the pelvic floor muscles, and increase the opening of the birth canal. This places your baby in a proper “head down” position.
This stimulates the birth process (proper engagement into the pelvis and stimulation of the cervix) and there will be less need for interventions.
A Comfortable Pregnancy
The expanding belly can often make it difficult to get into a comfortable sleeping position because more pressure is placed on the hips. Chiropractic adjustments realign the pelvic bones to reduce pain and pressure, enabling you to sleep more comfortably, and much better.
In addition, changing hormone levels can cause gastric reflux, nausea, heartburn, constipation, and fatigue… secondary issues which may also improve with regular chiropractic care by removing interference on the nerves and allowing the body to function at its optimum level.
Preparing Your Body for Childbirth
The opening of the birth canal can be decreased if there is a misalignment of the pelvic bones, causing a decrease in the birth canal opening and therefore, difficulty during delivery.
This increased room in the pelvis from adjustments gives the baby more room to grow and allows the baby to get head down, the best possible position for birth (Especially helpful for Vaginal Birth After Cesarean Section).
Studies show that chiropractic care during pregnancy may reduce the average amount of time spent in labor by as much as 24% in first time moms, and up to a 39% in women with one or more children.
Chiropractic helps the pelvis heal normally and recover appropriately.
It can help you adapt to your new lifestyle and the new discomforts you may experience from holding the baby, postural issues from nursing, and lugging around heavy baby carriers and diaper bags.
Many moms decide to have their babies checked after birth to make sure they are developing appropriately and to help with latch while breastfeeding, colic, sleep, and immune function.
