Chiropractic Care for Pregnant Women
Adjusting women during pregnancy is one of the most important aspects of our work because it can help the labor and delivery, which means an easier transition for the baby into this life. Chiropractic care through pregnancy is very safe and essential. During pregnancy a woman’s center of gravity shifts forward to the front of the pelvis. This shift can cause stress to the joints of the pelvis, hips and lower back leading to extreme pain and discomfort. As the baby continues to grow this shift forward becomes more pronounced, increasing the pain. Chiropractic care and nutrition therapy can bring great relief to this discomfort. In fact, 84% of women report relief of back pain during pregnancy!
Adjustments during pregnancy can offer:
- decreased labor time
- quick recovery for mothers to return to healthy prenatal health
- prevention of a potential cesarean delivery
- controlling symptoms of nausea and heartburn
- plus, many more!
"I started coming to Fife Chiropractic when I was about 3 months pregnant. I had never really been adjusted or worked on prior to then. I was experiencing lower back and hip pain. I knew that I wouldn't be able to survive my pregnancy without some sort of remedy. I talked to Dr. Chrissy and I decided I should come in and see what it was all about. I could really tell a difference after my first adjustment...from then on I was hooked!!
All I can is the body absolutely amazes me. I maintained regular chiropractic care throughout my pregnancy and I have to give it credit. I had a smooth pregnancy that lead to a smooth and quick delivery (1 1/2 hours of active labor!). I have to give credit to Dr. Chrissy and the staff at Fife Chiropractic for continuing to educate me throughout this whole process. I have learned so much and my body, along with my sons body, have greatly benefited from their services.
