Yes! Chiropractic care is amazing for all aspects and stages of life. But prenatal care is especially important. Pregnancy care is a time of many changes.
Physically there are many changes that come with pregnancy: weight gain and redistribution of weight, balance issues, increased demand of vital organs, increased stress, swelling, and many more untold joys of pregnancy. Chiropractic helps balance the body biomechanically which increases nervous system function and allows the brain to function better.
Emotionally, pregnancy is a time for all the feels. The rollercoaster of emotions can be intense! Chiropractic helps balance hormones. Often people report feeling happier under chiropractic care.
Structurally, the pelvic bowl houses the developing baby. We want to make sure there is proper alignment so baby can grow and have enough room. As baby is developing in utero, they are actually getting stimulation from the outside world, which helps them to develop the best way possible. When there are misalignments in the pelvis, it reduces babies potential for development and decreases the ability to “get baby out.” Research published in 2016 found that chiropractic adjustments improved the ability of pregnant mamas to relax their pelvic floor muscles. This is super important during pregnancy and may event result in better birth outcomes.
