Pregnancy is an exciting time in life. Women’s bodies put forth heroic effort to create and sustain life. It is during this time that the innate wisdom of their bodies and their nervous systems are given the opportunity to shine. From the moment of conception, a magnificent cascade of events takes place in perfect coordination. This innate wisdom, like a conductor, beautifully orchestrates its symphony of hormonal, cellular, and structural fluctuations via the nervous system. It is of utmost importance that the nervous system be in balance throughout pregnancy. When a mother’s nervous system is strong, her baby can be strong. Prenatal chiropractic adjustments help expectant mothers to have a balanced nervous system and structure, which is vital to the development of her baby and helps mom to have a more enjoyable pregnancy.
A mother’s pelvis must be in a state of balance not only for her comfort, but also for her baby’s comfort. If there is structural harmony, growth and development are effortless, she is better able to adapt to her changing body, and pregnancy is so much more enjoyable. One of the methods used in our office for structural balancing is called the Webster Technique. Our doctors are certified in the well-known Webster Technique by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. It is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment for pregnant mothers that reduces interference to the nervous system and balances pelvic muscles and ligaments. This adjustment optimizes uterine function and allows for a safer, easier birth for mom and baby. It is a gentle method of adjusting mom’s pelvis in order to reduce uterine constraint and allow the baby to move freely into the best position possible for birth. Simply stated, a balanced pelvis and optimally positioned baby make for an easier labor and delivery. Well-informed birth professionals love to hear that their moms are receiving Webster Technique because it significantly reduces complications and labor time.
The health of your body before pregnancy, during all stages of pregnancy, and after the birth of your newborn affects both you and your baby for a lifetime. Chiropractic care allows for proper nerve flow and alignment of the pelvis and spine. Increased function due to chiropractic care improves fertility, optimizes development of your baby during pregnancy and as your body prepares for the birth process.
