Some of the benefits of frequent adjustments during pregnancy are; Back pain relief, pregnancy is tough on the body’s skeletal structure, especially as the baby grows and gets heavier. The weight of the baby can also cause changes in your posture and spinal curvature. We can help correct any posture problems and help keep the spine in its intended curve. Ease Pregnancy Symptoms, adjustments can help with nausea, vomiting and reduce morning sickness. Healthy mom and Healthy Baby, during pregnancy the mother and baby’s immune systems are intimately connected. By receiving adjustments it insures mom and baby have full functioning nervous systems that allow the brain and body to communicate freely. The adjustments also boost both immune systems. Better Positioning for baby, adjustments can help position baby correctly for birth. If the hips and lower spine are out of place, baby could end up sideways, posterior or breech–none of which are ideal positions for labor and birth. Chiropractic adjustments can thus help get baby in the proper position, by ensuring that there are no vertebrae out of place.
