Most pregnant women need routine chiropractic care throughout pregnancy for two reasons: to help naturally alleviate the pains and discomforts of pregnancy; and more importantly, to prepare the pelvis for labor. Mothers go through many changes as the baby is growing and developing inside of them, including the pelvis and surrounding structures are expanding.
It is important to know that if there is any imbalance in these structures, that can affect the development of the baby and its positioning coming through the birth canal. It is extremely important for expecting mothers to maintain this balance of the pelvis, muscles, tendons and ligaments throughout pregnancy, so they can best function for a safer and easier birth for both the mother and baby. Not all chiropractors are created equal when it comes to pregnancy, and it is recommend to find a chiropractor that is certified in the Webster technique.
