Pregnancy Chiropractic at Align Wellness Center
This is the most exciting time of your life, and also one of the most uncomfortable. Let’s face it; being pregnant isn’t as glamorous as TV makes it. It comes with many uncomfortable symptoms such as nausea, back pain, and constant fatigue; after all, your body is going through so many physical and physiological changes.
Getting comfortable seems nearly impossible between the growing belly, extra pressure on your hips and back, and increased hormones.
With chiropractic care, you’ll find relief from many of these symptoms while decreasing your risk of long labor and delivery times, breech birth, and C-section delivery.
Having a healthy pregnancy is important for both mother and baby. Here are just some of the benefits of chiropractic care when you’re pregnant.
Nausea is one of the most common pregnancy symptoms and can last for your entire first trimester or throughout your entire pregnancy. Your hormones will be balanced by realigning your spine, digestive issues improved, and your morning sickness will be reduced or eliminated.
Your pregnant ligaments and joints in your pelvic area are loosened; thus, you’ll feel back pain. A chiropractor’s adjustment will correct your posture from the relaxed spine and heavier belly and relieve you.
Women getting regular chiropractic care during their pregnancy have had shorter labor with less pain and reduced complications. This is a result of your pelvis, spine, and hips being properly aligned for optimal nerve health. This helps your body to do most of the work. If you are looking to have a natural childbirth without pain medications, you’ll want to consider chiropractic care during pregnancy.
Reduce the risk of your baby being breech. Breech births can lead to many complications for both you and your baby, such as cord prolapse and C-section delivery. With chiropractic care, you will improve the pelvic room amount for the baby to move into the head-first position.
During pregnancy, chiropractic care helps you maintain healthy pelvic balance, so your baby has enough room to freely move head-first into the correct delivery position. During your eighth month of pregnancy, make regular chiropractic adjustments a priority to avoid breech presentation and benefit from optimal positioning.
As you can see, chiropractic and pregnancy are essential to reducing your symptoms by creating a healthy environment for both you and your baby, allowing for a safer and more comfortable birthing experience.
