Pregnancy is a beautiful time, a blessed time to celebrate new life. It is also a time where the body performs at its best, as it is sharing your energy with your baby. At times, though, pregnancy can be hard on the mother. That’s when expecting mothers start looking into prenatal chiropractic care.
Not only does it benefit expecting mothers, but it also helps their unborn babies.
How the body changes during pregnancy
From the moment of conception, the human body undergoes a series of changes, both positive and negative.
In addition to experiencing nausea and indigestion, pregnant women may experience back pain, pelvic pain, sciatica, discomfort, and even anxiety. This causes spinal misalignments and nerve miscommunication in the body. Since the body is working harder than normal, it’s easier for it to experience stress and fatigue faster.
Changes during pregnancy, such as weight gain and pelvic rotation, to help support the mother and baby add on to any current stress to the spine and lead to nerve miscommunication as well.
How prenatal chiropractic care helps expecting mothers
Chiropractic care helps re-establish communication between the brain and the nerves in the body. Through gentle manipulation and techniques, chiropractors are trained to adjust a pregnant woman’s body without adding additional pressure to their abdomen.
Results will often include relief from back pain and control over nausea. In addition, expecting mothers could see a reduced time of labor, and even avoiding c-section, during delivery.
Prenatal chiropractic care allows the mother to relax, to adjust to the changes in the body, and to prepare for her new bundle of joy.
