Chiropractic Care For Expecting Moms
Pregnancy is one of the greatest, self-sacrificing events that a mother can experience. Unfortunately, pregnancy is often associated with many unpleasant symptoms. However, many of these symptoms can be avoided with safe, gentle, and effective prenatal chiropractic care. For example, prenatal chiropractic care benefits include:
- Controlling symptoms
- Relieving pain
- Encouraging optimal fetal position
- Supporting natural labor and delivery
- Setting a foundation for healing postpartum
What is prenatal chiropractic care?
Prenatal chiropractic adjustments remove interference from the mother’s nervous system. In other words, these adjustments enhance the baby’s development and uterine function. In addition, mom’s pelvis is balanced. As a result, tension is eliminated from the muscles and ligaments. Consequently, this encourages optimal fetal positioning. -Jeanne Ohm, DC icpa4kids
Benefits Of Prenatal Chiropractic
Your body goes through many changes to grow a baby and prepare for birth. Prenatal chiropractic care can reduce painful symptoms. As a result, you feel healthier and more prepared for labor and delivery.
Chiropractors can help reduce nausea and vomiting by realigning your spine. Thus, you achieve a healthier hormone balance. Similarly, if your nausea is triggered by heartburn, adjustments can help improve your digestive issues.
Relief From Back Pain
As your body prepares for labor and delivery, it releases a hormone called relaxin. Relaxin loosens your joints in the pelvic area. This often causes back pain. Chiropractors can help relieve this pain.
Optimal Baby Positioning
Prenatal chiropractic care helps maintain healthy pelvic balance. As a result, the baby has enough room to move. With enough room, the baby can move into the delivery position. In other words, this space helps avoid breech deliveries. In addition, it greatly reduces mom’s labor pains. We encourage you to seek out a Webster Certified chiropractor.
Easier Labor and Delivery
Regular chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy ensure that your spine, pelvis and hips are properly aligned. When your body is in alignment, your nerves are in the best condition. Above all, this aids in faster labor and easier delivery with less pain and discomfort.
