Chiropractic Care and the Birth Process
So you have had chiropractic care during your pregnancy, and now labor has started! Did you know you can get adjusted during labor? Sometimes unexpected stalls can occur, due to physical or emotional interferences in the mother's body.
Given that the chiropractic adjustment removes tension and interference from the nervous system, improves the balance of the pelvis and surrounding muscles and ligaments, and helps with adaptability to stress, getting adjusted while in labor can be the boost the mother's body needs to continue the labor process.
Anecdotal stories of mothers getting adjusted in labor have shared how the birth process quickly moves on and the mother's body continues to dilate and open as she prepares to birth her baby.
As a house call chiropractor, I am already set up to come meet you where you are at, whether you are laboring at home, a birth center, or the hospital. There are also multiple ways to assess and adjust you while in labor, and it is my goal that you are as comfortable as possible.
I am here to support you in whatever capacity you need!
