Greater Comfort, Safer Births
Chiropractic care during pregnancy can be an essential ingredient for a comfortable pregnancy and an easier, safer delivery. As your baby develops, your uterus enlarges to accommodate the fast growth. When the pelvis is in a balanced posture, the ligaments connected to the uterus maintain an equalized and supportive suspension. When your pelvis is out of balance these ligaments may become stressed, causing a condition known as intrauterine constraint. Many women in the second and third trimester become aware of the sensation of a tightened Round Ligament. This constraint can restrict the baby's movement and positioning. As birth approaches the baby may be prevented from getting into the best possible position for birth. Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy may restore balance to your pelvic muscles and ligaments potentially leading to a safer and easier delivery for you and your baby.
