Why Should I Have Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy?
Pregnancy can pose a series of challenges to the body as you experience a myriad of changes that come with bringing a child into the world. Prenatal care provides mother and baby with a range of benefits to stay healthy throughout the term. This care should also incorporate chiropractic treatments to focus on the proper balance and alignment of the pelvic area.
Pelvic health is absolutely critical for successful childbirth and this includes maintaining the correct alignment of the pelvis to ensure there is ample enough space for the fetus inside the uterus. Doing this will help to avoid intrauterine constraint which comes from a misaligned pelvis that decreases the uterine space and limits the fetus' ability to mature and maneuver into position for a successful delivery.
If intrauterine constraint is allowed to continue, the mother's body might have an increased difficulty with natural childbirth in the future and C-section delivery may be necessary.
Help with Pregnancy?
The natural hormonal and physiological changes that occur in the body during pregnancy are essential for helping to develop the ideal prenatal environment to support the healthy maturity of a fetus in the womb. But while these changes are critical for the fetus, they can also result in a misalignment of the mother's spine or joints.
Careful analysis of the correct alignment of the pelvis helps the fetus move into position prior to birth. At Light Chiropractic, we have worked with pregnant mothers to enable proper pelvic alignment to reduce the potential for intrauterine constraint and lower the chances of a complicated labor.
If the fetus is allowed to mature and develop freely and maneuver into the correct position inside of the womb, the birth can be free of complications for the mother and the baby.
Is Chiropractic Care Safe During Pregnancy?
This is one of the questions we get asked most often. The answer is yes, chiropractic care is absolutely safe for pregnant women and those who are trying to get pregnant. Chiropractic is a form of prenatal care that is entirely essential for the health of the mother and the baby.
We stress that importance for women who are pregnant and attempting to conceive because it's never too early to get started on maintaining correct pelvic health and balance. A chiropractic professional can guide you through a pregnancy by helping to maintain the proper size and shape of the uterus without compromising the space allowed for the baby to develop and mature unhindered.
