Common Effects of Pregnancy

The most obvious change during pregnancy is the growth of the mother’s belly. This signifies a growing and healthy baby. However, it also leaves various stressors placed on the mother’s body. Early on, the mother’s center of gravity shifts toward the front of the pelvis. This can alter the mother’s balance and posture. As the baby continues to grow, the curve in the mother’s lower back increases, which places more stress on the lower spine. Then, to compensate for these changes, the upper spine may also begin to shift. In addition, a hormone, called relaxin, is released, causing a loosening of ligaments throughout the body, particularly the pelvis which allows room for the baby to grow. This hormone is necessary for labor and delivery, but it also creates various imbalances throughout the body. A pregnant woman may become more susceptible to falls, pains, and discomforts. Chiropractic care addresses these issues through all-natural and effective methods, to help you have your most comfortable pregnancy.

Chiropractic Care as Prenatal Care

A common worry is that chiropractic adjustments are unsafe during pregnancy. Yet, this is not true. The American Pregnancy Association actually encourages mothers-to-be to visit their local chiropractors to reduce aches and pains. Chiropractic care and adjustments provide relief, without invasive or chemical methods. By realigning the spine, a chiropractor can not only help you achieve a more comfortable pregnancy but also help enhance your overall health and wellness.

A chiropractic adjustment restores proper alignment to a woman’s pelvis. This also improves your posture, allows more room for the baby inside the womb, and offers an easier birth. In fact, chiropractic care during pregnancy has shown to decrease labor time and reduce medical intervention during delivery, which results in improved birth outcomes and a healthier mom and baby!
