Gentle support for mothers-to-be

Chiropractic care relieves the discomfort and physical stress women experience during pregnancy, in a safe, drug-free way.
During pregnancy, women’s bodies undergo several changes. The average weight gain is between 8-20 kg, which can lead to severe discomfort. The extra stress placed on the body affects the lower and middle back, as well as the neck. Recent studies have indicated that over 70% of expectant mums will experience less lower back pain with chiropractic care. 

Chiropractic also helps relieve other conditions common through pregnancy like aching limbs and extremities, headaches, sciatica, shortness of breath, dizziness, and fatigue.

Many of these problems could be directly related to the health of your spine. These include low back pain, headaches, sciatica, pelvic pain, and pelvic instability, which should not necessarily be considered ‘a natural part’ of pregnancy even though many women suffer from them as early as in the first trimester.

How we help

During pregnancy. Having an optimally working nervous system, especially when you are pregnant, creates an ideal environment for your baby to realize his or her fullest potential.

After birth. Even natural births place enormous stress on the bodies and spines of both mother and child. Many newborns and mothers experience breastfeeding problems and settling issues, because the baby has a subluxation, and is unable to comfortably turn its head to one side. We use special approaches to make our adjustments safe and comfortable for you and your child.

Chiropractic care is gentle, non-invasive, and can benefit both the mother-to-be and her newborn.
