Prenatal Chiropractic at Live Well Chiropractic

Holding pregnant bellyExperienced chiropractors Dr. Jim Davis and Dr. Nancy Swenson have provided safe, natural and effective chiropractic care to expecting moms for over 25 years. They’ve helped countless Live Well Chiropractic patients experience the pregnancy, labor and delivery they’ve always wanted—and they’d love to help you, too!

Why Chiropractic?

The postural changes that you go through during pregnancy put additional stress on your spine, especially the lower back and pelvis. These biomechanical changes, combined with the hormone relaxin, which targets the pelvis to help those ligaments relax for childbirth, make it easier for the spine and pelvis to become subluxated (misaligned).

These subluxations result in lower back pain, pelvic pain, pubic bone pain and round ligament pain. Additionally, when the pelvis twists, it creates an environment where there is not enough room for your baby to move around freely.

Chiropractic care is a natural approach that corrects subluxations, helping to relieve your pain as well as creating a more spacious and comfortable environment for your baby.

Benefits for Mom

We use very gentle techniques to adjust pregnant women, including Webster Technique. Some of the benefits Mom may experience include:

  • Improved ability to sleep and optimal energy
  • Decreased back pain, fatigue, tight muscles, constipation and heartburn
  • Less morning sickness

Perhaps most importantly, research shows that women who get adjusted regularly throughout pregnancy experience shorter labor and delivery times, with a lower incidence of medical interventions such as pain meds, epidurals and C-sections.

Benefits for Baby

When the pelvis is properly aligned, Baby has room to grow and develop as they should. They can also get into the best position for birth, helping to create an easier delivery for both of you.

Postpartum Care

We recommend moms come in as soon as they’re feeling up to it after delivery so we can help restore optimal alignment to the spine and pelvis. We offer all of our new moms a complimentary visit after delivery and a free first checkup for their new baby.
