Receiving regular chiropractic adjustments while pregnant helps create a state of balance within the pelvic floor, sacrum, low back and the other areas of the spine. When these areas are functioning well together, it can create an easier birth experience.
During this time of life, the mother’s body is changing rapidly. At the beginning of the birth, chiropractic care may help alleviate morning sickness and overall lethargy. In the middle of the birth, it can help maintain the body’s aches and pains and before the third trimester hits. When the third trimester comes, the body seems to change the most with a little more frequency in visits to prepare the body for birth. Each person is put on their own specific treatment plan.
Dr. Shoults is certified in Webster Technique. Webster Technique is a gentile adjustment to help get the pelvis ready for delivery. It helps open up the pelvis so the baby can get in the proper position for birth. When a mother’s pelvis is out of alignment, the round ligament (a support ligament for the uterus) can put a different type of pull on the uterus and pelvis. If this does not get corrected, the birth can be harder, the baby could be in the wrong position and it could result in a C-section. Therefore, Webster Technique helps with all these aliments.
This is one of the most precious times in someone’s life. Making sure your body is given the right tools will help with the ease of it all.
