What are some of the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy?

  • Improved functioning of the nervous system helps both the mother and the developing fetus.
  • Proper alignment of the pelvis supports the growing uterus and allows maximum room for the baby to grow.
  • Proper positioning of the fetus for labor and delivery helps reduce the amount of pain the mother experiences during labor and allows for an easier birth.
  • Lower back/pelvic pain due to the weight of the developing fetus can be reduced.

Proactive Care Throughout Your Pregnancy

Our specialized training can help support a healthy pregnancy throughout this special time.

We use gentle aligning and releasing techniques, specifically designed to reduce uterine constraint and open pelvic dimensions. This means that mom is more comfortable and balanced in pregnancy and baby has the best chance to position herself properly for birth.

Plus, women love the chance to lay face down and be comfortable- especially in the last trimester!

Preparing for a Safe and Easy Birth

Getting ready for birth is more than just buying diapers and packing some bags. At RFC, we work with our pregnant patients to help dissipate the fear that many women have around the birth process, empowering you to tap into the vast resources that are available to you as a birthing woman. The physical work we do to open the spine, pelvis and uterus is combined with an educational program designed to help you understand, appreciate, and capitalize on the intrinsic wisdom of the birth process. We will give you real world skills that both the birthing woman as well as her partner can use to mechanically ease the birth process. And we are available to be on-call for any patient who wishes us to be present at any part of the birth process. We have special techniques that we can use to help premature labor, failure to dilate, failure of the baby to descend, lack of optimal position of the baby, breech presentations, and other labor complications.

Baby's First Adjustment

The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association recommends that baby and mother is checked by a chiropractor as soon as possible after birth. The birth process can be traumatic for both baby and mother (not to mention Dad!). Our technique is gentle enough to use safely on a newborn babe as well as a new mom- and can help to correct problems before they become longer standing patterns in the body. At RFC, if you are a patient, care during your new baby’s first 30 days of life is on us- our baby shower gift to you!
