Prenatal Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care is important for expectant mothers for many reasons. The first is due to the intimate relationship between the spine and nervous system. The nervous system controls and coordinates everything in the body, including the development of the growing baby. When the bones in the spine misalign, this reduces the effectiveness and efficiency of the nerves that control everything. Imagine what would happen if the nerves going to the uterus were functioning at less than 100%. Would you be okay with your infant receiving less than everything it needed? Of course not!
Secondly, prenatal chiropractic care focuses on the proper alignment of the spine and pelvis which is essential for the position of the baby. There are several physiological changes throughout pregnancy which contribute to misalignments in the spine and pelvis including: a protruding abdomen, increased back curve, pelvic changes, and postural adaptations. Any misalignment (subluxation) of the pelvis can create torsion in the uterus, leading to in-utero constraint, which can prevent the baby from moving freely and into the proper position. Correct baby positioning during birth results in easier and safer deliveries for both the mother and baby.
The Webster Technique is a specialized chiropractic technique, which is appropriate for pregnant moms of all gestational ages. It is used to prevent and correct inter-uterine constraint and allow the baby to find the ideal position for birth, which helps to avoid breech, transverse, and posterior presentations. Dr. Erin Scott is trained in the Webster Technique and is a very useful resource during pregnancy and beyond because of her additional post graduate training.
Chiropractic care while pregnant is an essential addition to your health care team during this exciting time in your family’s life. Dr. Erin looks forward to helping your family to have the pregnancy
and birth that you desire with the best possible outcomes for mom and baby.
