Hormones are released throughout pregnancy, which loosen the ligaments and allow the body and pelvis to relax and spread out in preparation for birth. While this is normal and healthy, it can also allow the joints in your body to shift out of place more easily, which puts pressure on your nerves and causes pain and discomfort.

Chiropractic adjustments are safe for everyone, and they have multiple benefits for pregnant women, including:

  • Shorter and easier labors and deliveries
  • Better baby positioning
  • Decreased back pain
  • Less hip pain
  • Reduced sciatica
  • Less carpal tunnel
  • Decreased heartburn
  • Better sleep
  • Improved mobility
  • Better chance of successful VBAC

Chiropractic care is safe and beneficial for all stages of pregnancy, even early in the first trimester! If you are pregnant, then be sure that you look for a chiropractor who is trained in Webster’s Technique. Webster’s is a specific technique that is designed to gently put the sacrum (tailbone) back in place, remove pressure from the round ligaments, and release the psoas muscle. This technique not only reduces pain, but it also creates adequate room for the baby to move into an optimal position for an easy and safe delivery.

Chiropractors who focus on pregnancy in their practices have a special table, as well as specific types of pillows which help make room for your growing belly, allowing you to lay comfortably for an adjustment throughout the various stages of pregnancy.

At Wellspring Health in Orange City, we can even provide an adjustment during your labor and delivery if that is what you desire. Additionally, we can provide a chiropractic adjustment for your brand new baby to ensure that they are well aligned and can feed and eliminate waste properly after their long journey.

Chiropractic adjustments during labor ensure that the sacrum and pelvis stay well aligned, which can lead to more productive contractions, a shorter labor time, and an easier delivery.

The most common thing we hear from a pregnant woman after her first adjustment is, “Wow, I feel so much better. Why didn’t I come in sooner?” With all of the strain and stress that your body experiences during pregnancy, consider scheduling a chiropractic adjustment to provide the best possible care for yourself and your baby.
