Chiropractic care for pregnant women is similar to regular chiropractor treatments. They can be tailored depending on the stage in her pregnancy and may use specialized equipment, like pillows that allow them to lie face-down (prone) with their growing bellies or other positions (Seated or Sidelying) as needed. The most common technique used by doctors specifically when it comes down to this scenario is known as Webster technique. Many women are recommended to see a chiropractor if they present with breeches or transverse presentations, as well as throughout their pregnancy to optimize their quickly growing & adapting bodies.
The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that reduces nervous system stress, and balances pelvic bones, muscles & ligaments to optimize the mother's pelvis & physiological function during pregnancy and birth. These treatments reduces tension on surrounding soft tissue structures such as round ligments (connecting to uterus), to promote optimal fetal positioning and movement in labour without constraint from restricted areas usually seen when presenting breech or transverse (sideways).
This technique is often referred to as the "baby flipping" technique, however, we are not treating or addressing the fetus directly. By optimizing how your pelvis and sacrum function together with their associated soft tissue structures, your body can move freely allowing the fetus to move into the preferred head down position.
Furthermore, we'd love to educate you on specific stretches and exercises, such as inversions to assist with fetal positioning.
The birthing process is an amazing feat of the human body, but it can also place a great deal of strain on the mother's spine and pelvis. As a result, many women experience back pain and other problems in the months after giving birth.
Fortunately, chiropractic care can help to alleviate these problems. By gently realigning the spine and correcting any misalignments in the pelvis, chiropractors can help to relieve pain and improve the function of the musculoskeletal system. In addition, chiropractic care can help to reduce stress levels and promote overall wellness. For new mothers who are struggling to recover from pregnancy, chiropractic care can be an invaluable tool.
