Pregnancy Chiropractic at MCH Chiropractic and Nutrition

During pregnancy, the challenges a mom faces aren’t limited to the tidal waves of emotions we often see depicted on the big screen. For most women, pregnancy can become increasingly physically uncomfortable due to the production of relaxin, the hormone that allows our bodies to loosen up and our baby to grow.

For many moms, this increased production of relaxin causes a variety of increasingly uncomfortable symptoms. If this is you, pregnancy chiropractic care can help.

We ensure that mom’s to be understand the need to be calm and trust the process. If they’re constantly in a state of stress, the baby’s going to be in that state of stress. Our goal is to give our moms the proper tools they need to be ready for the trauma of labor, and everything leading up to it.


The Importance of the Nervous System

Moms have a nervous system, and there’s another person inside developing their own nervous system. We put a lot of emphasis on the health of the nervous system. Our doctors inform our moms about the gravitational and biomechanical changes happening to their body, and the increase of the hormone relaxin, which loosens muscles and ligaments, allowing the baby to grow.

All these changes directly impact the body and cause pain—in the low back, pubic bone, and round ligament—heartburn, indigestion, and other symptoms. While these are common, we can help relieve your pain, so you can be more comfortable.

Once your muscles are relaxed and your pelvis is in proper alignment, the muscles, ligaments, and everything attached will be more relaxed, so you feel better. Pregnancy is smoother, reducing interventions, and decreasing labor time, because everything is sitting where it’s supposed to be, leading to a smoother delivery.
