Benefits of prenatal chiropractic care for a baby

Chiropractic care not only addresses the high demands on a pregnant woman’s body but also provides benefits for a growing baby. Labor and delivery are stressful for both mom and her baby. Chiropractic care can significantly lower this stress.

After the adjustments and particularly the Webster technique, a baby gets more freedom to move inside the uterus. As the restraints on the uterus decrease, a baby is more likely to get into the optimal position. The head-down positioning is a key to a smoother labor process and a lower probability of a C-section and other interventions.

Besides, do not underestimate the role of birth-related stress. Minimizing the stress a baby gets during birth is also important for managing stress throughout their life. So, a smooth delivery means a great start to the new life!

What is so special about chiropractic care during each stage of pregnancy?

Regular adjustments are good at each stage of pregnancy – it’s never too early or too late. We recommend getting chiropractic care throughout the entire pregnancy period.

In the first trimester, women often face the exacerbation of their preexisting conditions. They may begin to feel more headaches or muscle tension. Adjustments at this stage aim to prevent the further development of these unwanted conditions. Achieving this builds the foundation for future well-being.

In the second trimester, the structural and hormonal changes become more noticeable. Together with fixing the misalignments, a doctor may provide some recommendations at this stage. They may cover diet and lifestyle habits, such as sleeping positions or work ergonomics.

Check this video to see the chiropractic adjustments during week 22 in the second trimester.

In the third trimester, optimal pelvic motion becomes especially important. The primary goal of adjustments at this stage is restoring the proper pelvic alignment. A properly aligned pelvis means no intrauterine constraint and enough space for a baby to move and grow freely. The Webster technique is among the most effective techniques for achieving optimal biomechanics in the pelvic region.

Whatever trimester you are in, prenatal care from a professional chiropractor will always be relevant. Take a step toward a healthy pregnancy today! Schedule your first visit to our chiropractic team in Austin today!

Can chiropractic care help achieve the optimal positioning of a baby?

Chiropractors don’t turn babies into the optimal position. Rather than that, they restore the proper alignment in a pregnant woman’s body. A misaligned pelvis often causes pressure and torsion on the uterus, leaving less space for a baby to move and grow. 

To restore the proper pelvic alignment, the Webster chiropractic technique comes in handy. This specific prenatal chiropractic adjustment helps balance hips and uterine ligaments. As a result, a baby has enough room to get into the best birthing position. 

As a result, a baby gets more room to move within the uterus. More opportunities for movement increase the chances of getting a baby into a head-down position. The optimal fetal positioning contributes to easier labor and smooth delivery.
