Prenatal Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic Care While Pregnant
Pregnancy is often one of the happiest times in a woman’s life.
Your baby’s home for nine months is your uterus, which is suspended between your pelvic bones by ligaments. These ligaments can become twisted when the pelvis or hips become misaligned. This decreases the amount of space your baby has to move, and develop.
There is a hormone released in a pregnant woman’s body called relaxin, it allows for your normally stable joints to become unstable which allows the natural birthing process to occur, the down side is that it can also increase your body’s susceptibility to subluxations.
Prenatal chiropractic care is an ideal way of reducing the discomfort many women experience during pregnancy and allowing the joy of your growing family to be the focus.
Chiropractic Care Helps Fertility
When your nervous system isn’t functioning properly, a number of fertility issues can result. Sometimes, a simple spinal adjustment can improve your chances for pregnancy.
Undergoing pre-conceptive chiropractic care can improve your body’s health, allow for better uterine function and better regulate menstruation. Proper menstrual function will help prepare your body to receive a baby, which will in turn increase your chances for conception and for maintaining a healthy pregnancy.
