One of the most rewarding aspects of being a chiropractor, is caring for the pregnant patient.  Pregnancy is the most natural of nature’s acts.  Chiropractic care helps to keep pregnancy as natural as possible by virtue of its hands on drug free approach to the care of the pregnant patient's hips, pelvis and lower back, including sciatica.  The pregnant body will develop aches and discomforts as the nine months of pregnancy progress.  Chiropractic care relaxes the muscles and frees up the nerves allowing pregnant women to feel less stress in their bodies.  We do this without harmful drugs and medications. In addition, chiropractic adjustments improve nerve flow to the uterous, ensuring that the vital communication from the mom’s body to the baby is open and clear of interference.  Another added benefit is that a properly trained chiropractor can reduce constraint on ligaments supporting the uterous, this allows the developing baby to move freely and helps to avoid a breech birth position.  Lastly, chiropractic care for pregnant women is completely safe for the mother-to-be and the unborn child.  Chiropractic and pregnancy is a natural fit.  Chiropractors along with obstetricians and midwives make up the ultimate natural childbirth team.
