As the fetus develops within the mother’s uterus, the pelvic ligaments become more lax to accommodate for the developing fetus. This is an essential aspect of pregnancy. Chiropractic for pregnant women ensures healthy alignment of the spinal vertebrae and pelvic bones. This makes both the pregnancy and delivery of the newborn much easier, for mom and baby. Chiropractic for pregnant women also removes torsion of the pelvic ligaments supporting the pelvis through these delicate changes. Let’s face it, a mother’s womb is tight quarters and we want to ensure the space is optimized for the developing babe.

The nervous system is vitally important in maintaining, controlling, and coordinating all of the necessary functions of life. When there are misalignments of the spinal vertebrae and pelvic bones, this inhibits the function of the nervous system. This is the most important reason to have chiropractic for pregnant women since chiropractic restores harmony within the nervous system thereby by supporting the entire pregnancy process.

Chiropractic for pregnant women not only supports mom but also supports the baby. As the fetus is developing, its nervous system is constantly adapting, growing and communicating with mom’s nervous system. Therefore by mom staying well-adjusted with regular chiropractic care, this will promote healthy development of the fetus’s nervous system and communication between mom and babe. With proper pelvic alignment within the mother, the baby achieves healthy development of cranium, spine, and skeletal structures and has plenty of room to achieve optimal positioning for birth.

The pregnancy and birth experience frame the earliest development of the newborn’s physical and emotional life and they will forever be affected by what that experience was. At Chiropractic from the Heart, our desire is to provide chiropractic for pregnant women in order to ensure that the mother’s body is in the optimal state of health for pregnancy and delivery of the life she has had the gift to create. Chiropractic for pregnant women promotes a healthier, happier pregnancy and birth for both mom and baby.
