According to the American Pregnancy Association, chiropractic care during pregnancy can provide the following five benefits for pregnant women:
- Maintain a healthier and more comfortable pregnancy
- Control symptoms of nausea
- Reduce the time of labor and delivery
- Relieve back, neck or joint pain
- Prevent a potential cesarean delivery
Many pregnant women find that chiropractic adjustments provide relief from the increased lower back pain that can be a problem when carrying the baby. The American Chiropractic Association states that spinal manipulation is safe for pregnant women and their babies, and can be especially attractive to those new moms who are trying to avoid medications when addressing their back pain.
The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) recommends that women receive chiropractic care throughout their pregnancies to maintain and improve balance and alignment in their spine and pelvis. This will optimize the room the baby has for healthy development throughout the pregnancy.
When pregnant moms have a balanced pelvis, babies have a greater chance of moving into the correct position for birth. This can avoid difficult labor and help prevent having a breech baby. This means that mother and baby are safer during delivery time.
Mandeville Chiropractors can offer nutritional, ergonomic, and exercise-driven advice that will help women enjoy a healthy and successful pregnancy. It is very important to note that chiropractic care can be extremely valuable after childbirth. The female body undergoes a tremendous amount of change from the pregnancy. Chiropractors can maintain a woman’s spine alignment and even provide tips on proper posture for carrying the baby in and out of car seat and cribs.
