Pregnancy can be an incredibly scary time for women and their families involved. They are constantly surrounded by a million different opinions and expectations about how to carry and care for the child within them. As chiropractors, it is both a responsibility and a privilege to care for increasing numbers of pregnant women, as more and more seek us out as part of their pregnancy plan.
At Your Wellness House we love caring for Pregnant women. Chiropractic adjustments are safe for mum and baby throughout the pregnancy. We also have a tummy pillow, which allows you to comfortably lie on your tummy for adjustments. This is lovely Camila with Dr.Mehdi, who has been adjusted for years and has loved having her body working optimally pre-conception and all the way through her pregnancy as we work on her pelvic and spine alignment.
Is it safe to see a chiropractor while pregnant?
Not only is it safe to visit a chiropractor during your pregnancy, it’s also highly beneficial. All chiropractors are specially trained to treat pregnant women, but you may want to do a little research and find one who specialized in prenatal care.
How can chiropractic care help during pregnancy?
There are many hormonal and physical changes you’ll experience during your pregnancy. Some of these will have an impact on your posture and comfort. As your baby become heavier, your centre of gravity shifts, and your posture adjusts accordingly.
These physical changes during your pregnancy can lead to a misaligned spine and joints.
Other uncomfortable changes during pregnancy might include:
- A protruding abdomen resulting in an increased curve of your back
- Changes to your pelvis as your body begins to prepare for labour
- Adaptation to your posture
Regular chiropractic visits during your pregnancy can address these issues.
