Pregnancy, Childbirth and Newborns can all be benefited with Chiropractic Care.
Chiropractic care is one of the best things you can do for your body when you are pregnant. It will help provide a more flexible and balanced spine, hips and pelvis; ease postural stress on internal organs and alleviate nerve stress–all which are essential for a healthy pregnancy and delivery.
A pregnant woman needs her body to be as healthy and strong as possible in order to handle the demands of pregnancy and childbirth. Chiropractic care can help make sure that the body systems are all functioning properly, especially the reproductive system. If the body structure is causing nerve interference, this will affect the mother and the developing fetus. Your chiropractor can examine the body for subluxations and correct them with a chiropractic adjustment.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy has had proven success in the following areas: pregnancy maintenance, low back pain, vomiting control, premature contractions, back labor, avoidance of C-section due to back pain, avoidance of breech births and postpartum depression.
Chiropractic is safe for pregnant women all the way through delivery. It is recommended during pregnancy even if you don’t feel you have any problems. It is also good practice to bring your newborn in for a chiropractic check-up.
Childbirth is not only traumatic on the mother’s body but also for the newborn. Imagine what it must be like for the newborn to come down the birth canal. Often times, the head gets stuck in the canal which puts stress on the newborns little neck. The twisting of the little bodies also puts stress on their spine. You may notice when you lift your newborns legs that he(she) might yell out or look uncomfortable. You may also notice that your little baby might have more vomiting and reflux. These are often subluxations in the spine of the newborn which can be gently corrected with the smallest push of the chiropractor’s thumb.
In conclusion, chiropractic care is not only helpful but recommended during pregnancy, and beyond for both the mother and her newborn child.
