Supporting Healthy Pregnancy and Natural Birth

Going to see a Chiropractor while being pregnant is a very safe thing for yourself and the baby. There are many benefits that you can experience before your pregnancy, during your pregnancy, and even after your pregnancy. During your pregnancy stages, you will be experiencing many physiological and hormonal changes, and with an adjustment a chiropractor is able to get ahead of the curve and help your body adapt to the changes easier and quicker than normal.

Getting adjusted before your pregnancy comes with many benefits such as:

  • Promotes regular menstrual cycles
  • Optimal uterine function
  • Prepares body for healthy implantation
  • Ensures proper nerve supply to reproductive organs

Getting adjusted during every stage of your pregnancy comes with many benefits such as:

  • Less back labor
  • Less back pain
  • Reduced need for pain medication
  • Detection, prevention and correction of fetal malposition
  • Reduction of preeclampsia
  • Shorter labor times
  • More comfort while breastfeeding and greater production of breastmilk
  • Less incidence of postpartum depression

“Women who received chiropractic adjustment in their third trimester were able to carry and deliver their child with much more comfort

– Irvin Henderson,MD

Chiropractic care should be an essential care provided to all pregnant mothers.  Many times expectant mothers experience pain or discomfort in the lower back that can affect their daily activities during pregnancy.  Chiropractic helps restore the normal motion to your joints, spine & pelvis thus allowing the nervous system to communicate properly from head to toe.  The specific chiropractic adjustment can create balance, relax surrounding muscles and take tension off of supporting ligaments.  The result is an easier pregnancy and in many cases shorter and easier labor.

The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/ SI joint dysfunction. In so doing neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved.

Dr. Jennifer Howard is Certified in the Webster technique, a specific adjustment provided to pregnant women and is an active member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.
