There are many benefits of prenatal chiropractic care. Dr. Ashley, at Pangea Family Chiropractic, is specifically trained to work with pregnant mothers and adjust their rapidly changing bodies. From weight distribution to relaxed ligaments due to increased hormones, the pelvic integrity of a woman’s body can become weakened during pregnancy. Prenatal chiropractic care works to prevent this kind of tension on the body.
During pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes many changes. With weight gain and hormones can also come a protruding abdomen and increased back curve. Pregnancy also brings about changes to the pelvis and posture. Prenatal chiropractic care can be used to bring pelvic balance and alignment. Pelvic alignment plays a large role in pregnancy. When the pelvis is misaligned, it can reduce the room available for the baby during critical times of development. Additionally, a misaligned pelvis can make delivery more difficult, as it makes it harder for the baby to get into the best position for delivery.

Dr. Ashley and the staff at Pangea Family Chiropractic work hard to make pregnancy as comfortable as possible for both mom and baby. Prenatal chiropractic care is recommended throughout pregnancy to establish pelvic balance and ensure the baby has enough room for development in the womb. Because the body is constantly undergoing change during pregnancy, prenatal chiropractic care helps maintain the proper curve in your spine and balance the changes that occur.
Like all forms of chiropractic care, adjustments during pregnancy can help support your body’s natural abilities to function. Minimize the general aches and pains associated with pregnancy by receiving prenatal chiropractic adjustments. Improve function and quality of life during pregnancy for both you and your developing baby.
