It’s great to see a Chiropractor during pregnancy!
Chiropractic is becoming an important part of health care for many pregnant women these days.
As a mother’s weight increases, her center of gravity shifts outward and her postural compensations respond accordingly. In addition, the ligament laxity necessary for birthing adds to instability in all of her joints, including her spine and pelvis.
The mother’s pelvis has various key ligaments attached that support her uterus. As the baby grows, their role becomes increasingly important.
If her pelvis aligned well during pregnancy, the uterus will be supported symmetrically. This allows the baby optimal room for movement in utero and provides it the opportunity to develop free of constraint. It also may help to minimise pain and discomfort in pregnancy.
