Pregnancy is a natural condition and should be not more difficult than any other phase of life. There is no need to believe that backaches, headaches, leg pains, morning sickness, etc., are all normal inconveniences which you must bear at this time. Regular chiropractic adjustments throughout your pregnancy can alleviate much of theses aggravations so you can better enjoy this part of your life.

Your Chiropractor knows that the extra weight you are carrying may cause postural distortions which can result in irritation to your spine. The reduction of these distortions by your Chiropractor can relieve these spinal irritations as well as unnecessary tension. This relief will permit greater relaxation and allow for more restful sleep, so important at this time.

Safety Concerns
Some women are concerned about the safety of chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy. The fact is that regular chiropractic adjustments are completely safe because your Chiropractor is trained to alter the treatment as needed during pregnancy. Chiropractic adjustments are not only safe but very important for two reasons. First, they help insure that your pelvic bones are properly aligned, which could result in a quicker, easier delivery with less chance of injury to you and your child. Second, adjustments help provide freedom from irritation of nerves, which could be vital in your child’s healthy, normal development.

Diet and Nutrition
Naturally, your diet is also very important to both you and your baby. All of the elements required to build the baby’s body must come through the mother, who must, in turn, provide these through her own food intake. Without proper nutrition, baby’s needs will be drawn from mother’s resources, leaving her short of her normal daily requirements. Be sure to follow a wholesome diet plan which will provide the necessary vitamins and minerals so important to both of you.

 State of Mind
Your mental attitude during pregnancy should be considered, too. Good common sense tells us that a woman free of pain, at ease and relaxed, conscious that every necessary measure is being taken for the welfare of both herself and her child, will naturally have a better mental attitude than the woman who is suffering. Chiropractic care can help you feel better and have a more cheerful mental attitude.

Common Pregnancy Pains
Low back, hip, and leg problems sometimes occur following the mechanical stress and trauma of the pregnancy and delivery. These symptoms may not go away by themselves. Although chiropractic care can usually correct these after-pregnancy discomforts following delivery, regular chiropractic care throughout your pregnancy will reduce the likelihood of them occurring at all.

So you see, there is no need for you to drag through your term of pregnancy with discomforts, worries, and poor health. Visiting a Doctor of Chiropractic will help assure you as an expectant mother of a happy and healthy pregnancy, and afterwards, too.
