Benefits of seeing a Chiropractor during Pregnancy

Benefits of seeing a Chiropractor during

Pregnancy

If you’ve ever been pregnant, you are already familiar with the symptoms such as nausea, back pain, and fatigue that are common health concerns among pregnant women.

A chiropractor uses methods that can reduce certain pregnancy symptoms and help expecting mothers benefit from healthier pregnancies and birth outcomes.

Reduced Nausea

Nausea, or morning sickness, is one of the most common pregnancy symptoms that can be highly uncomfortable.  A chiropractor can help reduce nausea and vomiting by realigning your spine and improving overall nervous system function. As a result, your hormones can achieve a healthier balance to eliminate or lessen the severity of your morning sickness.

Optimal Baby Positioning

A baby who is not in the position to be delivered head first at the time of labour is known to be in the breech position, which can lead to complications including a highly difficult vaginal delivery, cord prolapse, or C-section delivery. Chiropractic care during pregnancy helps you maintain healthy pelvic balance, so your baby has enough room to freely move head-first into the correct delivery position. During your eighth month of pregnancy, make regular chiropractic adjustments a priority to avoid breech presentation and benefit from optimal positioning.

Relief from Back Pain

Back pain among pregnant women may also be caused by postural problems that occur due to a heavier belly. Some women may unintentionally curve their backs as their babies become heavier and larger, which can throw the spine out of alignment and trigger back pain. Adjustments can help correct posture and spinal curvature to keep back pain at bay.

Healthier Overall Pregnancy

The goal of chiropractic care is to address and remove nerve obstructions in the spinal column that may be preventing your organs from functioning at optimal levels.
Prenatal chiropractic care can contribute to improved overall health for both you and your baby, and may reduce some unwanted symptoms so you can experience a safer, more comfortable pregnancy.
