Pregnancy and birth needs our respect and support- not intervention


The philosophy of chiropractic views the body as having an innate intelligence, which when in balance, the body has the capability for maintaining an optimal functioning state. This ties into the practice of taking a natural approach to health and life. It also allows a mother to trust in her body's own ability to accomplish the incredible, innate process of childbirth.


During pregnancy there may be preexisting but unnoticed imbalances in your spine and pelvis that become stressed and can result in pain or discomfort. There also may be no symptoms at all. This can be due to many different changes in a woman’s body in a short period of time. It may be due to one or more of the following:

  • Rapid weight gain as the baby grows

  • Chances in the center of gravity with your growing belly

  • Increased axial loading of the spine due to the weight gain

  • Changes in posture and sleeping positions

  • Rapid growth of the uterus and surrounding, supportive ligaments

Some of these changes may explain why many women experience back pain and discomfort during pregnancy. Chiropractic care and specific adjustments throughout pregnancy may eliminate the causes of stress in the spine along with possibly relieving or even preventing the common discomforts experienced during pregnancy and delivery.


Comfort for your baby, too.

Your uterus enlarges to accommodate the rapid growth as the baby develops. When the mother's pelvis is balanced, the ligaments and surrounding structures connected to the uterus maintain an equalized, supportive suspension for the uterus. However, when the pelvis is out of balance these structures may become torqued and twisted. This results in a condition known as intrauterine constraints. This can restrict the developing baby's movements, and eventual their optimal positioning for delivery. This may result in the baby being off to one side, presenting in a posterior position, or even breeched.


Chiropractor work specifically with the pelvis during the pregnancy to restore a state of balance and create an environment for an easier, safer delivery.
