Pregnancy

During pregnancy, there are several physiological and endocrinological changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby. These changes could result in a misaligned spine or joints.

Establishing pelvic balance and alignment is another reason to obtain chiropractic care during pregnancy. When the pelvis is misaligned it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. This restriction is called intrauterine constraint. A misaligned pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery. This can affect the mother's ability to have a natural, non-invasive birth. Keeping the spine aligned helps the entire body work more effectively.
