At first glance, most people don’t see the connection between chiropractic care and pregnancy. However, having an optimally working nervous system and structural support help both mother and child.
Due to stresses on the mom’s body, her spine can become misaligned, placing pressure on spinal nerves that feed to the pelvic region. Uncomplicated, natural births can stress her baby’s spine. Through chiropractic adjustments, proper nerve supply and proper alignment of the spine result, allowing for well-timed contractions to help move the baby more easily through the birth canal.
Chiropractic care prior to conception promotes a more regular menstrual cycle and optimal uterine function. It prepares the body to be strong, supple, and as balanced as possible to carry the pregnancy. Some couples who thought they were infertile have been helped by restoring proper nerve supply to reproductive organs.
Regular chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy help maintain balance, alignment, and flexibility. Many report less morning sickness. When the baby is comfortable, he or she can assume the optimal birthing position. Mothers who get adjusted seem to require less high-tech intervention. Many reports shorter, less traumatic births.
