Prenatal Chiropractic

Throughout the phases of pregnancy, chiropractic care can help mother and baby achieve an optimally working nervous system.

Chiropractic care prepares the body to be as strong, supple and balanced as possible to carry the pregnancy.

During pregnancy

Physiological and endocrinological changes occur during pregnancy when creating the environment for the developing baby.

  • Healthier pregnancy
  • Ease symptoms of nausea
  • Reduce the time of labor and delivery
  • Relieve back, neck, TMJ or other joint pain
  • Supports vaginal birth through pelvic alignment and optimal fetal positioning

Some physical changes that can result in a misaligned spine or joints:

  • Protruding abdomen and increased back curve
  • Pelvic changes
  • Postural adaptations
  • Change in gait

Establishing pelvic balance and alignment is a big reason to have regular chiropractic care during pregnancy. When the pelvis is misaligned it can reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. This restriction is called intrauterine constraint.

Labor & Birth

Chiropractic care can help assure optimum biomechanics of the hips and spine in the hopes of reducing the need for interventions during the birth process. (Learn more HERE)

Even natural births can stress a mother’s and baby’s spine. Breastfeeding problems can arise if the baby has a subluxation and is unable to comfortably turn its head to one side. Mom’s body changes dramatically after birth. Dr. Sierra uses special approaches to make adjustments safe and comfortable for you and your child.
