Chiropractic care is an important part of the birth preparation for many pregnant women. It prepares the body to be strong, supple and as balanced as possible to carry the pregnancy and have an easier birth for both themselves and their babies.
As a mother’s weight increases, her center of gravity shifts outward and her postural compensation responds accordingly. In addition, the ligament laxity necessary for birthing adds to instability in all of her joints, including her spine and pelvis. The mother’s pelvis has various key ligaments attached that support her uterus. As the baby grows, these ligaments become increasingly important. If the mother’s pelvis is in bio – mechanical balance during pregnancy,the uterus will be supported symmetrically. This allows the baby optimal room for movement in utero and provides the opportunity for the baby to develop free of constraint.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy can support a balanced spine and pelvis resulting in greater comfort and lifestyle improvements for the mother and easier development and delivery for the baby.
