Adjustments can help the labor process go smoothly

Many women don’t know but chiropractic care can relieve some of the pain and pressure associated with pregnancy. Chiropractors are trained to adjust pregnant women and use special techniques and tables to help reduce unneeded pressure on the abdomen. Some of the reasons you might want to see a chiropractor for prenatal care are changes in the mother’s posture, pelvic discomfort, a baby in breech or posterior positions, and pinched nerves.

It is natural for a change in posture to occur during pregnancy. This can cause misalignment of the entire spine and receiving regular adjustments can help correct and balance the body. Pelvic balance, especially during pregnancy, is extremely important because it allows for maximum room for the developing baby and can make it that much easier for baby to get in the best position possible for delivery.

Many chiropractors have helped babies in a breech or posterior position turn naturally, again, aiding in making more room in the womb for natural movement. When a baby is situated in a good position inside the womb, the ease of labor increases and there is also a reduction of birthing complications. Sciatica, or a pinched nerve in the lower back, is a very common complaint from pregnant mothers. Getting specific adjustments, sometimes termed the Webster Technique, can help reduce pressure on the nerves and will help the body balance out as much as possible.

According to, some of the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy can include reduction of nausea symptoms, potential prevention of a cesarean delivery, relief from back and neck pain, and an overall healthier pregnancy.

    My wife is pregnant, and so this information was definitely appreciated. I didn’t realize that chiropractic care could help relieve some of the pain and pressure associated with pregnancy. This seems like it would be a great investment. Thanks for sharing.

    My wife is pregnant and she has seen the chiropractor many times. I really like what was said in this article about how chiropractors make sure they adjust pregnant women in a way that puts no pressure on the belly. My wife was a huge fan of this and she always felt amazing since most of her pregnancy pain was felt in the back.

    I didn’t know that chiropractors were able to relieve some of the pain caused by pregnancy. I also like how you pointed out that one’s posture naturally changes during pregnancy. My sister has been experiencing a lot of abdominal pressure and discomfort. Maybe she should see a chiropractor soon.
