Pregnancy and Chiropractic

Pregnancy is an exciting time when health and wellness is at the forefront of your mind. Chiropractic is a perfect addition to your prenatal care, and has been shown to be safe and effective.


Benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy may include:

  • Relief of back, joint, and neck pain.
  • Relief of tingling and numbness in extremities.
  • Increased comfort in daily activities and sleeping.
  • Support to your immune system.
  • Drug free relief of nasal congestion and headaches.
  • Assisting you in remaining active throughout your pregnancy.
  • Improved pelvic alignment.
  • Safer deliveries for both mom and baby with less intervention.

The many physiological and hormonal changes that take place as your body supports the development of a growing baby can result in many pelvic changes and postural adaptations. Chiropractic supports the body’s natural ability to function during labour and birth by maintaining proper pelvic alignment.This provides your baby with room to move into the best position for delivery. Caring for women during their pregnancies is an important part of Dr. Chelsea’s practice. With her expertise, Dr. Chelsea will work with the innate abilities of your body using adjustment techniques that accommodate changes as your pregnancy progresses.
During the postnatal period, chiropractic care restores spinal mobility, assists healing and minimizes strain involved in caring for your newest family member. Your pregnancy is also a great time to learn about the benefits of chiropractic care for children, and plan to have your newborn checked for spinal subluxation. Subluxations occur when the spine is misaligned causing stress and interference in the nervous system.
