Caring for the spine and nervous system is incredibly important at any stage of life
It is even more important to relieve the back pain that commonly affects women during pregnancy. It is also important to help maintain good posture during pregnancy as the body changes and to help prepare the mother for childbirth through regular chiropractic adjustments.
By maintaining the pelvis and low back in a neutral position it makes it easier for the baby to engage into the pelvic inlet in a head down position.
For babies that engage in a breech presentation (bottom first instead of head first) the Webster technique is a wonderful way of naturally turning the baby so that it is head down to give the mother the best possible chance at a natural delivery and avoiding unnecessary medical intervention. If a baby persists in a breech presentation until delivery, then it is highly likely that the baby will be delivered by cesarean section rather than natural delivery.
Chiropractic is a safe, gentle and natural way of preparing mother and baby for childbirth and thereafter.
