One of the most important times to see a Chiropractor is during pregnancy! Chiropractic care is designed for mothers during the prenatal and postpartum periods. It’s about honouring and supporting women throughout their pregnancy. A mum’s healthy nervous system in pregnancy will also have a lifelong impact on the health of her baby.
The Importance of Care
So many changes occur in a woman’s body during pregnancy, from increased hormones, relaxation of the pelvic ligaments, increased weight gain, and shifting of the body’s centre of gravity. All these changes in such a short amount of time often cause discomfort, such as low back pain, hip pain, pelvic pain, symphysis pubis dysfunction, and difficulty sleeping.
Prenatal Chiropractic care is safe for both mum and baby. We use extremely gentle and specific adjusting techniques for pregnant women to balance the pelvis and sacrum. We also work with the supporting soft tissues to ensure the muscles and ligaments stay relaxed to promote optimal foetal positioning and healthy development.
Our Chiropractors use the Webster Technique, an evidence-based approach, to reduce the effects of pelvic joint dysfunction throughout pregnancy. This method is specially designed for women, and is an excellent way to improve function in an expectant mum, allowing safer, easier births.
How It Helps
Chiropractic promotes maternal and child health without drugs or surgery. Our female Chiropractors are trained to care for pregnant women with gentle, effective techniques. When the mother is healthy, comfortable, and happy, the baby can thrive and grow.
