Today, I received wonderful news from one of my patients. She gave birth to her second boy. And labour was less then 30 minutes. She has been under regular chiropractic care for the last 4 months right up until yesterday, the day before delivery. I thought it would be a good time to write about the wonderful benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy.
Chiropractors have been helping pregnant women for many years. Chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy are safe and gentle. Chiropractic adjustments help reduce pressure and discomfort in the low back that develops as weight is gained during pregnancy.
Specifically, chiropractic care helps improve nervous system function in the pregnant mom, reduce stress on the nervous system, and improve spinal and pelvic function. This helps optimize the pelvic biomechanics in preparation for safer, easier births.
I invite to you to view this short video by Dr. Jeanne Ohm, Executive Coordinator for the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) where she discusses chiropractic care in pregnancy for easier, safer births.
