Pregnancy Made Easy 101

A commonly accepted fact in science circles and seen right here at New Life Chiropractic over the last 20 years is that specific, scientific, life changing chiropractic adjustments can make a gigantic difference throughout pregnancy, right up to and including the delivery!

Most common benefits include:

  • Reduce pain: Reduce back pain, neck pain, hip pain and joint pain with chiropractic adjustments and help make the whole process happy!

  • Improved sleep: Many pregnant women have difficulty sleeping due to discomfort and pain. Chiropractic care can help you get a good night’s sleep so you can feel refreshed and energized during the day.

  • Reduced stress: Pregnancy can be a very stressful time. Chiropractic care can help to reduce stress levels and promote relaxation.

  • Easier delivery: When your body is properly aligned, it makes it easier to go through the birthing process. Chiropractic care helps shorten labor time and reduce the need for pain medication, epidurals and c-sections.

  • Boosts immune system: prenatal chiropractic care helps to keep your body functioning at its best, which helps boost your immune system and improves health.

  • Reduced nausea or vomiting: studies have shown that prenatal chiropractic care reduces morning sickness in some cases..

  • Reduced Braxton hicks contractions: these false labor pains can often be reduced or eliminated through prenatal chiropractic care; in fact, chiropractors are trained to help start labor when it’s time.

  • Help breech position: a baby in the breech or abnormal position can often be corrected through chiropractic care. The Webster techniques is over 80% successful.

  • Overall posture improvement: as your body changes and grows during pregnancy, you may find that your posture suffers. Chiropractic care help improve your posture and makes you more comfortable along the way!

To summarize, chiropractic makes for an easier, more comfortable, happier pregnancy experience and just as amazing, allows for a smoother and often shorter delivery with less risky interventions (like epidurals). Know someone who is expecting – send them in! We can help!!
