How can it help?
A misaligned pelvis could reduce the amount of space for baby to grow as well make it more difficult for baby to get into the ideal position to be born, which can affect the mother’s ability to have a natural delivery.
Chiropractic care has been shown to reduce the average time a mother spends in labor. One study showed a reduction in time spent in labor by 24% for women having their first delivery and by 39% for women who had already had at least one prior delivery.
Low back pain is a common condition that women experience during pregnancy. Approximately 60% of women experience low back pain during pregnancy, with some cases being severe. Chiropractic is a safe, drug-free, and effective way of getting relief from pregnancy related low back pain.
