couple-makes-heart-on-pregnant-belly-sq-400Pregnancy is an incredible journey, filled with joy and anticipation, but it also brings significant changes and challenges to a woman’s body. As expectant mothers adapt to the beautiful journey of motherhood, they may encounter discomfort and musculoskeletal issues.

Fortunately, chiropractic care during pregnancy offers a natural and holistic solution to support both the mother’s well-being and the baby’s development.

Benefits You Can See—and Feel

Let’s explore the numerous benefits of care at Herron Family Chiropractic during pregnancy.

  1. Relief from Musculoskeletal Discomfort—during pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes profound changes, including hormonal shifts, weight gain, and a shifting center of gravity. These changes often lead to discomfort, especially in the lower back, hips, and pelvis. Our adjustments realign the spine, restoring balance and function and relieving pregnancy-related aches and pains.
  2. Optimizing Pelvic Health—maintaining a balanced and aligned pelvis is crucial for a smooth pregnancy, labor, and delivery. Chiropractic focuses on pelvic alignment, which may positively affect the baby’s position in the womb, allowing the baby to move into the optimal birthing position, and potentially reducing labor complications.
  3. Managing Morning Sickness and Nausea—this natural care method may indirectly help with morning sickness and nausea. Spinal misalignments may disrupt the nervous system’s communication with organs, exacerbating pregnancy-related symptoms. Our gentle adjustments promote proper nervous system function, potentially reducing the severity of these symptoms.
  4. Enhancing Nervous System Function—a well-functioning nervous system is vital for overall health. Adjustments remove interferences, ensuring optimal nervous system function, helping to regulate hormones, boost the immune system, and improve communication between the mother’s body and the developing baby.
  5. Encouraging Proper Baby Positioning— at Herron Family Chiropractic, we use the Webster Technique to address pelvic misalignments and promote optimal fetal positioning. This technique increases the likelihood of the baby assuming the head-down position, ideal for delivery. Dr. Amy is Webster-certified and provides care for our pregnant patients.
  6. Shorter Labor and Delivery—regular care may lead to shorter labor and reduced intervention rates. Proper spinal alignment and pelvic balance facilitate a smoother birthing process, enabling the baby to navigate the birth canal more effectively. Well-aligned spines support better uterine contractions and muscle coordination.
  7. Postpartum Recovery and Wellness—chiropractic care extends beyond pregnancy and childbirth. In the postpartum period, as the body returns to its pre-pregnancy state, adjustments help realign the spine, relieve tension, and address any imbalances to promote quicker recovery and support the body’s natural healing processes.
  8. Stress Reduction and Emotional Well-being—pregnancy brings a range of emotions, from excitement to stress. Our doctor addresses not only the physical aspects but also the emotional well-being of the mother. Adjustments release endorphins, reducing stress and enhancing mood.
