How Safe Is Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy?

Pregnant mom with ultrasoundChiropractic care is perfectly safe for both mom and baby. Nothing we do moves the baby. We use safe, gentle adjustments to keep the pelvic ligaments moving the way they should, which allows space for the baby to roll into their proper position.

Your Comfort Is Our Goal

It’s important for moms-to-be to be as comfortable as possible. At Dr. Jeff Roderick’s office, we have an adjusting table with a belly cut-out, to allow you to lie face down if you prefer. We also have pregnancy pillows, and we are very happy to adjust you while you’re sitting up if that’s more comfortable for you.

Adjustments can also help with your overall comfort, which can affect your baby’s health. Struggling with a lot of discomfort can lead to elevated blood pressure. Keeping your body properly aligned and functioning optimally helps to reduce that discomfort, keeping blood pressure where it should be, which is healthier for both you and your baby. Regular chiropractic adjustments throughout your pregnancy can also make labor and delivery easier and quicker.

After Delivery

Dr. Roderick has treated new moms on their way home from the hospital after having their baby! It’s important to be adjusted as soon as you can, to restore your low back and pelvis to their normal position. Once the relaxin hormone is out of your system, your ligaments will start to firm up. It’s important to have everything positioned correctly, so when the ligaments firm up, they hold that proper alignment rather than healing in a misaligned state.

Get Started Today

We recommend you get adjusted about as often as you see your OB-GYN: about once a month until your last trimester, then twice a month for two months, and once a week for your last month. But we are happy to see you when you feel your body needs it; if you are feeling extra sore at any point, you are welcome to come more frequently. Contact us today to schedule your first appointment.
