Musculoskeletal aches and pains are not uncommon while pregnant. These changes are caused by the sudden and frequent shift of your anatomy. Because your abdomen is quickly growing outward, the curve of your lower back increases and your body can easily become misaligned.

Chiropractic adjustments are a natural way to realign the body, alleviating immediate discomfort and encouraging utmost health while pregnant.

There is an intimate connection between the mother’s nervous system and the baby’s nervous system. While pregnant, your spine and pelvis is shifting. However, these factors do not only affect your comfort. They also affect the development of your baby. Chiropractic care during pregnancy allows for optimal fetal growth and development.

During pregnancy, women feel the many discomforts that come with their bodies moving and stretching to house their growing little ones. These quick changes often lead to a variety complaints, such as:

  • Low back pain
  • Headaches
  • Hip pain

  • Sciatica
  • Swelling of the legs and feet
  • Poor sleep

If left alone, these symptoms can worsen and increase the risk of unwanted complications during pregnancy and labor and delivery. With the help of careful, specific chiropractic adjustments, your body can remain aligned – ultimately, keeping you comfortable and reducing labor pain as well as overall delivery time.

Dr. Kathleen adjusts pregnant women using a special technique called the Webster Technique. The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic adjustment for pregnant women. It addresses structural shifts of the pelvis in order to restore normal neuro-biomechanical function and balance in the pelvis to allow for a healthy pregnancy and birth. This technique can help with round ligament and pelvic pain, uterine torsion, can increase the amount of room for baby to grow and develop, and can also improve labor and delivery outcomes!
