The most significant decision a woman makes in her life is to have a baby. The time between conception and birth is one of the most exciting times in a woman's life. The most visible changes include the changing posture and growing belly.
However, hormonal and chemical shifts are also occurring in the mother and child. Chiropractic care from the doctors from Flow Chiropractic can help in relieving the additional strain on the spine and contribute to a functional, responsive nervous system.
Chiropractic adjustments provide non-invasive health maintenance that is beneficial for the whole population.
However, it may be especially valuable to pregnant women. Pregnancy releases hormones that relax the ligaments necessary for childbirth. A woman's center gravity is lower during pregnancy, making her more vulnerable to spinal misalignment. Chiropractic care can align the lower body and benefit the mother and baby's health and well-being.
Chiropractic can help the body become stronger, more flexible, and more balanced before conception. This promotes regular menstruation and better uterine function. To support future patients, students in chiropractic college will study obstetrics or pediatrics.
Regular chiropractic care can improve hormonal and immune system function. It also optimizes the body’s energy flow.
Research suggests that chiropractic care can help with labor and delivery, which is beneficial for a healthier pregnancy. The mother may feel more comfortable during the third trimester. This could reduce the need to take analgesics, and lead to shorter labor times.
To ensure that the baby is growing properly, it is essential to align the pelvis. An improperly aligned pelvis can cause intrauterine constraint which makes it difficult for the baby's development.
