Chiropractic care can do wonders during pregnancy! While you are pregnant, you are adding additional weight to your body in a small area changing the shape of your pelvis and shifting your center of gravity adding extra stress on joints and muscles. With chiropractic care, we can help maintain proper alignment and motion of these joints to decrease all the aches and pains that come with pregnancy. Not only can adjustments help with aches and pains but can also help ease the birthing process. If the bones of the pelvis are not properly aligned, this can decrease the amount of space that the baby has inside the womb. By getting adjusted, this can open up the pelvis making the birthing process easier for mom and baby. Moms will be able to have shorter labor times and babies will have more room to get into the optimal position for birth!
