Chiropractic care during pregnancy can provide significant benefits for the mother-to-be. Potential benefits include:
--Relieve back, neck, hip, and joint pain
--Control the symptoms of nausea
--Maintain a healthier pregnancy
--Reduce the time of labor and delivery
--Prevent a potential cesarean delivery

--Protruding abdomen and increased back curvature
Establishing pelvic balance and alignment is another reason to obtain chiropractic care during pregnancy. When the pelvis is misaligned it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby—this restriction is called intrauterine constraint. A misaligned pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery, which can affect the mother’s ability to have a natural, non-invasive birth.
