More women are choosing chiropractic first for the obvious benefits of better posture and maximising their own health so that pregnancy is a greater experience. Chiropractic can help prepare your body to be strong, flexible and balanced to carry your baby. Regular visits during pregnancy can help to assure optimum spine and pelvis alignment that may reduce interventions during birth.
As your baby grows, considerable stress is placed on muscles, ligaments, joints and overall posture of a woman’s spine. To make matters worse, the pelvis may begin to rotate to allow for the developing baby. This can lead to distortion of the surrounding connective tissue and pelvic dystocia (a common cause of failure to progress in labour)
Babies and Chiropractic and Wellness
The birth process can be one of the most traumatic events of our lives. Even natural birthing methods can stress a still-developing spine and nerve system. The resulting interference to the nervous system (aka spinal subluxation) can be the cause of many new-born health complaints such as:
80% of newborns have some sort of nerve dysfunction
In 1250 babies studied, 5 days after birth, 95% not only had vertebral subluxation but also cervical strain injuries
