“Why do pregnant women need chiropractic care? Is that safe?”

Pregnant women need chiropractic care because they are experiencing greater physical, chemical (hormonal) and emotional stressors than ever before.
Chiropractors help keep the pelvis, especially the sacrum, in optimal alignment so the baby can get in position for a safe and possibly natural childbirth.
Chiropractors also provide nutritional and supplement support so mom and babies can be as nourished as possible. Chiropractors can be a tremendous emotional support to pregnant women and their families.
And yes, chiropractic care for pregnant women is safe.
I recommend that women see a doctor that is experienced in seeing pregnant women and can meet their needs. The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association is an excellent resource for finding trained doctors.
I am experienced, trained and certified by ICPA to work with pregnant women. See the ICPA website or ask me for more information about chiropractic care during pregnancy.
