Expecting a baby is one of the most joyful feeling you will experience in your life. As an expecting mother, your body goes through a lot of changes that can be joyful and challenging. Chiropractic care during pregnancy can help ease some of these challenging changes.
These symptoms are all common during pregnancy, such as: morning sickness, hormonal changes, food cravings, and metabolism changes. Some of these symptoms can be a struggle to get through but with the help of chiropractic care, the can help alleviate the issue.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy is safe for both mother and fetus. It is considered holistic because there is no need for any drugs during treatment. All chiropractors are trained to preform gentle adjustments for expecting mothers. Special tables have been made to help assist the chiropractor as well. These tables adjust to the woman’s body to keep her and the fetus comfortable and avoid unneeded pressure on the stomach.
Pregnancy can cause an increased spinal curve, pelvic problems, and spinal alignment off. Each of these issues can cause some kind of discomfort during pregnancy. A big issue is the pelvic alignment. If the pelvis is misaligned this can cause strain on the baby when getting into the correct position for delivery. Which can result in a C-section.
Having chiropractic treatment during pregnancy can lessen symptoms of morning sickness, reduce the time of labor and delivery, relieve pain in the neck and back, and maintain an overall healthier pregnancy.
It is very important to tell your chiropractor that you are expecting. They will be able to help you find gentle stretches to do during pregnancy and have a plan to help ease your body during your pregnancy. You will also want to talk to your healthcare provider and make sure chiropractic care is the best option for you and your baby.
