Pregnancy and Fertility

Regular chiropractic care is an integral part of the pre and postnatal stages of pregnancy. Prior to pregnancy, it helps to achieve a viable pregnancy and then during the 3 trimesters keeps mum feeling healthy during the physical and emotional changes that occur. Many problems suffered during pregnancy may be directly related to the health of your spine. These may include backache, headaches, aching legs, sciatica, breathless­ness, nausea and fatigue. Not surprisingly 96% of women have been shown to experience back pain during pregnancy.

Chiropractic care helps during pregnancy by:

  • Correcting abnormal joint mechanics that lead to joint and nerve stress, thus reducing pain and improving function.
  • Maintaining joint function and spinal balance so the spine may adapt to the increased weight and altered posture.
  • Ensuring that the joints of the lower back and pelvis are moving freely to assist the birth process. Proper joint movement enhances pelvic opening.
  • Educating the expectant mother on correct posture, lifting and other lifestyle factors in order to reduce spinal stress.
  • Pregnancy may create new problems or exacerbate existing problems which were previously compensated for.

Care after birth
The process of childbirth places great stress on the spine and pelvis, and their supporting muscles and ligaments. Joints, muscles and ligaments are more supple from hormonal changes for some time after giving birth. This may increase susceptibility to injury. With the added strain on the back, neck and shoulders whilst nursing, feeding and caring for an infant, it is easy to see why many women suffer after childbirth. Chiropractors recommend that new mothers have their spine examined soon after giving birth.

“Every expectant mum that receives treatment will be given a welcome pack with an abundance of invaluable information about pregnancy. After the arrival of the new family addition and an invite to meet the new comer, mum and baby will receive a small gift.”
