What Might Be Some of the Benefits of Prenatal Chiropractic Care?

- Lowered chance of pre-term delivery
- Helps lower chance of C-section
- Lowered pain in joints, neck and back

How Does Prenatal Chiropractic Care Help My Baby?
Prenatal chiropractic care helps your baby by giving them maximum space in the womb using pelvic balancing. When the pelvis is out of alignment, it can make for less room, which makes it more difficult for your baby to move around.
Limiting your baby’s ability to move makes it more difficult for you to have a natural childbirth. By freeing up your pelvis and bringing you into alignment, your baby has more room to move and grow, giving both you and your baby a head start on a great pregnancy.
How Does Chiropractic Care Help My Pregnancy?
Your body is going through many changes as well as physiological changes. Your body’s center of gravity is off, and the extra weight of the baby makes for spinal and pelvic misalignment.
Prenatal chiropractic care can help restore all of this, lowering your stress, and giving you less discomfort during this time.
